Jesus is the Savior of the world.
He’s also the God of the Old Testament.
In Genesis 1:26 when God makes man, woman, and all of creation, the “us” is
God the Father
God the Spirit
and God, Jesus Christ, Savior, Redeemer, Rescue.
We often take for granted that when the Psalmists cry out, they cry to the Triune God for this Savior.
Many of us know that Savior. We have met Him at the altar. We consume Him in His Supper. We have seen Him change lives, including our own.
This advent we’ll rest in that Great Savior and the places we find Him throughout Scripture – New Testament, the Gospels, and Luke 2 of course – but let us take a peak at the Old Testament too. Let’s jump around and tarry in Who God is and the Hope He gives us through Jesus Christ.
The I Love My Shepherd and Grafted Heart Advent Series begins tomorrow! Yay! Today, jump in early with our podcast episode:
Above All Names – Old Testament
It’s short, it’s fun, it’s a moment of Scripture and rest in a hectic day.
What is your favorite name for God the Father, Son, or Spirit in the Old Testament? Tell us in the comments and join the conversation!
Want to get deeper into the Word this Advent season in the midst of the bustle? Take 5-10 minutes a day to write the segments of Scripture in our Above All Names Reading and Writing plan. Create a family notebook, or your own personal journal for these texts, or simply read these longer segments each day of Advent for a moment of rest.
