The Gospel According to GENESIS: The Restoration Begins

God Is Making It Good Again Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Many of us, since childhood, have heard the stories of these main characters of the book of Genesis. The problem is, we’ve usually heard them as broken up isolated fragments that are not inter-related. Abraham preparing to sacrifice his son, Isaac; Jacob wrestling with God; Joseph and his multi-coloured coat. When we dig deeper, we see that these men and their stories are part of a single, seamless story – one that stretches from the first page of the Bible to the last. Join John Mahaffey as he examines Genesis 12-50 and explores how the first book of the Bible foreshadows the gospel of Jesus Christ – the good news of salvation and redemption that we find only in relationship with Him. In the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph – the family of promise – we will discover how God takes a sinful, idolatrous, messed up, self-centered, wacko, dysfunctional family and makes them his very own people. Through their stories, we begin to understand that God orchestrates everything, including sin, dysfunctionality, suffering and evil, in order to redeem the consequences of the fall and ultimately restore us to Him.
