What do the Old Testament Laws & Odd Regulations have to do with us today?
Genesis and the first part of Exodus were interesting to read, but now it’s getting a bit strange…..
What do all these laws about what to eat, sacrifices, and how to build the Tabernacle have to do with us today?
Why should we bother reading them?
The answer is SO much more interesting and helpful than you can imagine! Not in that we should follow the laws and regulations in the same way the Children of Israel did, but in what these things foreshadowed in what was coming.
The study of this foreshadowing of what was coming is called “Typology.” The podcast not only discusses this topic but gives you reasons and encouragements why you should read these books that most people skip. From the middle of Exodus through Leviticus and Numbers, it can be hard to read and even harder to understand, but God put this material in our Bibles for a reason and this podcast will help you understand how much it will help you grow in your faith even if it doesn’t seem like it when you start.
Below the podcast are the notes from the podcast and a link I promised I’d give that has an excellent article on typology.
From a person to a people– Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph AND is God or are people in charge of history?

Abraham, the Father of our Faith
Why do Christians call Abraham the “Father of their Faith?”
Isn’t he also the Father of the faith for Jews and Muslims? And didn’t he write an important book for the Mormons?
Do I have to be a person of great faith like Abraham for God to accept me?
These questions and much more are what we will cover in this podcast on Abraham.
I’ll start with an overview of the incredible archeological finds that have literally uncovered streets in the city of Ur and buildings that were there when Abraham lived there. We will do an overview of Abraham’s life and then compare the Biblical view of Abraham with the Abraham of the Muslim and Mormon faiths.
Finally, you’ll see why it isn’t the moral character and the perfection of Abraham that made him acceptable to God, but the character of his God, who always has and always will provide salvation to those who trust him, not by works, but by faith.
