new sermon series @ RFC

This Sunday we start a 9 week sermon series entitled 'Beginning with Moses'.

The title comes from Luke 24v27 "And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he (JESUS) explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself."

The aim of the series is that we see the OT as a progressive, unified, unfolding of salvation history which, as Graeme Goldsworthy puts it, 'reaches it's goal, its focus and fulfillment in the person and work of Christ'.

I found Vaughan Roberts book 'God's Big Picture' to be very helpful, its an easy read and only £5:56! That said, here are some other books I've found helpful:
  • Gospel & Kingdom – Graeme Goldsworthy
  • Understanding the Bible – John Stott
  • Dominion & Dynasty – Stephen Dempster
  • A passion for God’s story – Philip Greenslade
  • Bible Overview – Steve Levy
  • Salvation belongs to our God – Chris Wright
  • According to plan - Graeme Goldsworthy
  • Knowing Jesus through the Old Testament – Chris Wright
  • Mission of God – Christopher Wright
  • A great website for all this is beginningwithmoses.org

And yes, I still feel sad about yesterday's 'Marie Stopes' encounter .
