Christ in the Old Testament is a handsome pamphlet that explores the lives of 13 biblical people who prefigured the Messiah. This bestselling 14-panel foldout chart examines types, parallels and illustrations of Jesus throughout the Old Testament, including men such Melchizedek, King David, Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and many others. When viewed through the prism of Christ's life, death and resurrection, these Old Testament characters and their roles in Old Testament history take on new dimensions. Students will discover how their lives can also point to Christ.
Size: 8.5x 5.5 unfolds to 38 long. Fits inside most Bible covers. Christ is the key to what God had been pointing to in all the history of God's people. One way to see this is to examine parallels between Old Testament people, events, and things, and the life of Jesus in the New Testament. Christ in the Old Testament pamphlet shows how the Old Testament anticipates, reveals, promises, and foreshadows Christ, featuring types and illustrations of Jesus. The pamphlet reveals: 13 Old Testament men who foreshadowed Jesus A Scriptural time line of their placement in history Summaries of their lives and significance Charts comparing ways their life events and actions paralleled Christ or his coming Life application questions The 13 men in the Old Testament whose life foreshadowed Christ include: Adam Noah Abraham Melchizedek Joseph Moses Joshua Samuel David Elijah & Elisha Zerubbabel & Joshua Throughout the Old Testament, God provided glimpses into the character and nature of the Messiah through typologies--significant biblical characters whose actions or events symbolically correspond with or contrast to the life ofChrist.
Here are a few examples of Christ in the Old Testament: ADAM Adam's actions brought consequences to his children, causing them to inherit sin and death (Genesis 3: 16-19) Christ's actions brought consequences to God's children, causing them to inherit righteousness and life (Romans 5: 12-19, 1 Corinthians 15: 20-22, 45-49) NOAH Noah offered a sacrifice of blood (Genesis 8: 20-9: 6) Christ offered himself as a sacrifice (1 Peter 1: 18-19) MOSES Surrounding the birth of Moses, innocent children killed by Pharaoh (Exodus 1: 22) Surrounding the birth of Jesus, King Herod killed innocent children in Bethlehem (Matthew 2: 16) JOSHUA Joshua led god's people to rest in the Promised Land (Joshua 21: 44) Jesus' followers are led into rest in this new creation (Hebrews 4: 1) SAMUEL Samuel's mother Hannah was blessed by the High Priest Eli before the birth of Samuel (1 Samuel 1: 17) Mary, the mother of Jesus, was blessed by an angel before the birth of Jesus (Luke 1: 30)

Turn Halloween into Something Positive in Your Family and Neighborhood

Many Christians are under the mistaken belief that Halloween, or more specifically All Saint's Day, was established for the purpose of Christianizing a pagan holiday called Samhain.

But Halloween actually started as a Christian festival, not the other way around.

Many Christians dread the coming of Halloween, trying to shield their children from every part of it, and wishing it would go away. And that s a shame, because Halloween is distinctly Christian in origin, and there are many ways that Christians can re-claim Halloween as a Christian celebration.

I have advocated through the years that we recapture Halloween as a part of the Christian calendar, a sort of Christian Memorial Day, and honor Christians who have been a part of our heritage.
Rich Buhler, broadcaster, speaker, author and founder of TruthOrFiction.com

How To Recapture Halloween as a Christian Holiday

• Know the original purpose of All Hallow's Eve : Early Christians wanted to honor those who gave their lives for the Gospel
• Discover that Samhain was never associated with a festival of the dead until 1890.
• Use the 3 ways for using Halloween to give positive message to our family and neighborhood.

What s the first step?

• Know your history. You could read a long book on church history, that hopefully has a section on pagan religions.

OR

• You can have a quick explanation of the key facts by reading a short 14-page pamphlet.

I love this pamphlet! I am especially glad it gives the true history, rather than suggesting Halloween was merely a Christian attempt to redeem pagan holidays.
Rich Buhler, broadcaster, speaker, author and founder of TruthOrFiction.com

About the Author

Angie Mosteller is the director of Celebrating Holidays, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to teaching the Christian history of holidays.

Holidays afford a unique opportunity to understand significant aspects of the Christian faith, ... My goal is to help Christians who are seeking to better understand the history of Americans holidays and to offer useful resources for those who want to make their celebration more meaningful and creative. Author Angie Mosteller

What other people are saying...

"It is a delight to see how Angie Mosteller interprets and thoroughly explains, the celebration of many holidays, through research and a heart ransomed by Christ! Her firm understanding of Jesus' love and sacrifice, beautifully enhances the Truth of God's heart of celebration, among His people. Angie is a talented, Spirit-filled woman, wife, mother and friend who chooses to bless all in her path!"
Paula Webb, Women's Ministry Director, Daybreak Church, Carlsbad, CA

"The first time I read one of Angie's books on American holidays I was amazed at how thorough and readable it was. I'm not an academic, she is, but she crafts each book into an exciting historical story covering our Nations's traditions, symbols, and songs from a Christian worldview. It's fun to read and so easy to incorporate into teachable moments with my children during the holidays. I'm always sharing her books and website with friends during the holidays."
Wendy Brunner, Mom Blogger at "Love Covers a Multitude of Sons"

Are you tired of reading yet another news story about Christians acting their worst?
Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? It seems one short outrageous video or pithy post can trigger an avalanche of comments on social media.

Welcome to the new age of outrage.
In this guide, Ed Stetzer--respected columnist and popular Bible teacher--leads small groups through a deep conversation of what it would look like if Christians were at their best. How might our world and our communities be different?

Spend the next six weeks discussing what it means to represent the love of Jesus Christ in this new polarized age.

This discussion guide for small groups is designed to be used with the teaching videos featuring Ed Stetzer (available for purchase at edstetzer.com).

    God's Care for the Brokenhearted

    Put this in the hands of a grieving friend to ease the journey through stages of grief. Words of comfort and biblical examples of grief for losses of many kinds help to give perspective, meaning, and hope to the devastation of loss through death, divorce, and the ending of significant relationships.

    Loss is inevitable. But hope is available.

    Everyone goes through loss, but the pain of losing a loved one is especially difficult. It seems that the sadness will go on forever. Every moment is consumed with the overwhelming grief that the loss is final. The agony makes us wonder if the tears will ever stop. Our hearts break with despair. We desperately want some sense of comfort. We need compassion and understanding. We long for a time of renewed hope and a reason for living.

    And the Scripture gives us this message of comfort:
    God sees your broken heart. He hears your cries. He cares for you and has a message you need to hear.

    These are the Bible stories and passages I hung onto when my marriage ended in divorce. I had to remind myself over and over of God s care and faithfulness, even when I was in despair. I m glad I listened to God rather than to my fears. The words and promises in this pamphlet pulled me through. Single Mother, So. California
