What is one quick and seemingly painless way we often reduce the size of our gospel? We reduce what we study in the Old Testament portion of the Bible - approximately three fourths of the entire book. We sometimes believe it does not have direct relevance to us today as we live out the gospel.
To live out the gospel in a large way, we need to increase the intensity of how we read and live the Old Testament. This study will help you be more attentive to the value of the Old Testament as a launching pad to the gospel of Christ. In this study, the author of "The 30-Day Leviticus Challenge" helps us understand the vocabulary and messages of the Old Testament.
