Introduction: Recap & types of Christ

  • We carry on looking at events & people in Genesis
  • In preparation for the Book Club
  • Peter has covered the first three chapters, including creation
  • And Peter started looking at Noah yesterday
  • I looked at Cain & Abel & Abraham & Isaac -God testing Abraham
  • And last week, because we were coming up to Christmas
  • So, I looked at prophecies & events in Genesis that point to Jesus
  • As well as prophecies & events in the old Testament that point to Jesus
  • There are types of Christ throughout the Old Testament
  • Types of Jesus are people who reveal Jesus in some way
  • Something of their lives show Jesus
  • There are similarities to Jesus life
  • In Genesis, we have a number of types of Christ
  • Adam, Abel, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph
  • Adam -Romans 5:12-21
