Why study the book of Exodus when we have the New Testament? Exodus is the theological book of the Bible. It is the book of Exodus that provides the theological framework within which the rest of the Bible operates. Genesis sets the scene for the whole Bible, but Exodus maps out the theological logic, the doctrinal details of the Bible.
The Book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. It sets the scene for everything in the whole Bible. In this book we learn about the creation of everything, the visible and the invisible. We discover how the universe was created. Genesis also teaches us where evil came from, explains the presence of pain, suffering and death in the world, and clearly reveals the solutions to these problems.
Book by Book: Isaiah with Alec Motyer Isaiah has been described as the fifth gospel because it is so full of the birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension and return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God's passion for evangelism is so much greater than ours. Yet, the Lord insists on reaching the world through His people. The book of Jonah is the story of the success of God the Evangelist even through His unfaithful people. Throughout this book, we see how the Lord prepares Jonah for the task and how Jonah learns of his own need for the Lord in his affliction. He goes on to learn of God's great compassion, even for the most wicked people. The book of Jonah ends with Jonah receiving one of the most challenging and life transforming presentations of the love and grace of God.

Psalm 25 expresses the sinner's confidence in the ascended Messiah, then from Psalm 26-31 we listen in to the Messiah's great prayers in His suffering.

Job is constantly accused by his friends of sin or pride or selfishness. They believe that suffering is always our own fault but that there is a way to avoid suffering if only we are holy enough or repent enough of our sins.
