Preaching Old Testament Prophecy

Date recorded: 1 Jan 2005 | Speaker: David Jackman | Event: ELF Workshop

Description

Described as "a veritable snake-pit of interpretive problems," Old Testament prophecy has been left alone by many Bible teachers and become the preserve of eccentrics. Apart from the obvious Messianic fulfillments what does this genre have to say to the contemporary church? What clues do Christ and the apostolic teachers give us? How can we follow their examples? We shall explore some of the methods the prophets used and the benefits they offer, as we learn to unpack their unchanging message and draw valid lines of application.
