One of the most helpful things you can do when reading an Old Testament book (or any book of the Bible) is ask the question:
Where does this book fit in the Bible’s overall story?
The video below* shares a 5-minute video summary of the Old Testament that will orient readers to the major events taking place in Old Testament history that pave the way for the coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ.
I hope it will deepen your knowledge of the Old Testament and lead you to exalt the Risen Messiah.
“The deeper you go into understanding the Old Testament, the closer you come to the heart of Jesus.” Christopher J.H. Wright
