Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament
rule

The Promised One provides a fresh look at the book of Genesis, leading readers in discovering how its stories, symbols, people, and promises point to Christ. Over ten weeks of study, participants will see Christ as the agent of creation, the offspring who will crush the head of the serpent, the ark of salvation, the source of the righteousness credited to Abraham, the substitutionary sacrifice provided by God, the Savior to whom the whole world must come for life, and much more.

The Promised One
rule

This study of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy covers Israel's emergence from slavery in Egypt, receiving God's law at Mount Sinai, and wandering in the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. We see Jesus pictured in the unblemished lambs who died that first Passover night, in the pillar of fire that guided God's people, the manna that fed them, and the rock that gushed with water for them to drink. In the law of God given to Moses, we discover a picture of the only person who has ever obeyed God perfectly. In every aspect of the tabernacle, the priesthood, the laws for clean and unclean we see the way Jesus saves us and cleanses us and loves us.

The Lamb of God
rule

This ten-lesson study covers the books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings, Ezra-Nehemiah, and Esther which trace the history of the people of God from the time Joshua led them into the Promised Land through the years of having no king, having a series of kings, being exiled from the Promised Land, and finally returning to the land where they awaited the coming of the True King. This study reveals the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will one day be. Readers will see Jesus as the greater Joshua who leads his people into rest, the greater Boaz who has done all that is necessary to redeem, the greater King who will sit on David’s throne forever, the greater Restorer and Rebuilder who is building his church from ruined stones, and much more.

The Son of David
rule

An in-depth study of the Old Testament Wisdom Literature of the Bible, with the goal of understanding it in the way that Jesus himself taught the disciples to read and understand the Old Testament: with him at the center. As we see not only the wise principles for living in these biblical books, but also the wise person they point to, it will help us to understand the person and work of Christ more clearly which will prepare us to worship him more fully.

The Wisdom of God
rule

Prophets in the Old Testament were men who spoke for God. Over 100 times in the historical and prophetical books of the Old Testament we read that, "the word of the Lord came" to a prophet. This ten-session study dives into the challenging prophetical books of Isaiah through Malachi with the aim of understanding not only what God had to say to his people through these prophets in their own day, but also what he has to say to his people today. Readers discover that we struggle with the same sins, we’re subject to the same judgment, and we await the same Savior.

In this paradigm-shifting book, Nancy Guthrie gently invites readers to lean in along with her to hear Jesus speak understanding and insight into the lingering questions we all have about the hurts of life—what was God's involvement in this, and why did he let it happen?

Holding On To Hope
rule

All families eventually face the loss of a loved one. When it happens, it can place great strain on a marriage, as well as on other relationships. That's partly because we don't know what to do with our feelings and partly because every family member grieves in his or her own way. In this book, Nancy and David Guthrie explore the family dynamics involved when a loved one dies--and debunk some myths about family grief. Through their own experiences of losing two young children and interviews with those who've faced losing spouses and parents, they show how grief can actually pull a family closer together rather than tearing it apart.

Biblical Teaching
rule

We tend to look to the New Testament to tell us about Jesus, yet it was the Old Testament about which Jesus said, “the Scriptures point to me!” In Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament, Nancy Guthrie takes readers from Genesis through Malachi shining the light of Christ on the promise of a descendent who will put an end to the curse of sin, the story of a father who offers up his son as a sacrifice, the symbol of a temple where people can meet with God, the prophecy of a servant who will suffer, the person of a king who will rule with righteousness— and so much more.

The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament
rule

Who wants to merely go through the motions of religion? We long for something authentic--something worth opening our hearts to, filling our minds with, and giving our lives for. We hope for something better than the "churchianity" of our parents and the vague spirituality of our neighbors, something better than guilt-induced, holier-than-thou morality, better than here-and-now, health-and-wealth promises. In her thought-provoking and authentic style, Nancy Guthrie shows that Jesus himself offers the something better we've been looking for, applying the truths of Hebrews to real-life issues such as guilt, shame, disappointment, hardship, unhealthy obsessions, personal ambition, and fear of death.
