The Old Testament Collection-cd-rom



As it turns out this item is temporarily unavailble.

This CD-ROM resource contains sermons that move through the Old Testament in historical sequence, starting with Genesis and ending with Malachi, over a year's time. These sermons mesh with appropriate Church Year themes. Generally, sermons during the Advent and Christmas seasons are based on texts from Genesis; sermons in the Epiphany season are from the rest of the Pentateuch; sermons in Lent derive from texts in the former prophets; sermons in the Easter season are on texts describing the life of David; the Pentecost sermon is on Solomon's dedication of the temple; sermons for roughly the first half of the Sundays after Pentecost are from texts on the period of the divided kingdom; and the remaining sermons treat texts on the story of Judah to the end of the Old Testament.

Or perhaps these Old Testament sermons could be preached one quarter or season of the Church Year at a time, thus taking several years to use all 61 sermons. * Expository preaching resources often ignore the Church Year. This resource sets up preachers and others with a way to put people in touch with the Old Testament Scriptures in sequence without ignoring church year themes and emphases. * Expository preaching resources seldom feature a Lutheran sensitivity to Law and Gospel. This resource does. Conversely, Lutheran preaching resources may or may not be expository in orientation. The sermons in this resource are. Many preachers hesitate to preach on Old Testament texts for fear of not making connections to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that are in character with the Old Testament text.
