Israel Demands a KingMessiahtitle

In 2013, we started on a bit of an adventure through the Old Testament. Our goal was to teach about Jesus from those passages. I cannot overstate the impact that series had on me personally and on others in our congregation. With the passing of time, we continue to feel that the ability to find Christ in the pages of Genesis through Malachi ought to be a large part of the training of every disciple. So, we’ve created a set of references to be used in a Chronological Bible Story Telling process to help gospel communities learn these stories together to share them with the surrounding world.

Below you will find a list of the “Meeting Messiah” stories with references, titles in boldface are hyperlinked to story maps, graphics, and audio examples of those stories to help you learn to tell God’s story.
