Part 1 of the Narrative Discipleship lesson on Covenant (Savez): “God the Redeemer”.
I taught this at Kristova Crkva Kušlanova in Zagreb on 18 March 2018.
In our review of the second part of the story–Corruption, the effects of the fall–I pointed out how God acts as redeemer from the minute sin and destruction enter the picture. God is ALWAYS acting to save sinners, and to make good things happen in the midst of the wreckage we leave behind.
Part 2: “What is a covenant?” How did ancient Near-Eastern covenants work?
Part 3: “Abraham’s Covenant and Ours”.
Why should you care how ancient Near-Eastern covenants worked? (How Abraham’s covenant with God helps us understand our covenant with God.)
