REVIEW: The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis by Nancy Guthrie

“The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis” by Nancy Guthrie is a wonderful Bible study that I have imagined myself for years! Do you recall the passage at the end of Luke’s gospel where Jesus meets the men on the road to Emmaus, but they don’t recognize Him. On that road trip, scripture says that Jesus told them everything about Himself in scripture from the beginning. THIS IS THAT BIBLE STUDY!

Finding Jesus so plainly identified in the Old Testament ignites the faith of the believer to know that Jesus was God’s plan from the beginning. He was always the Promised One. This wonderful study would be a good personal or group study topic. It is a ten-week study that is divided into three sections each week: Personal Bible Study, Teaching Chapter, and Discussion Guide. Each week takes a different story from Genesis and identifies Christ.

This is book 1 in the “Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament” series. Once you begin to realize how Jesus is showcased in Genesis, you will never see Old Testament Scripture the same way again.
