Christ in Genesis (10 of 37)
Series: Christ in All the Scripture

Last time we found that need a strategic grasp of the Bible because God's Word is TRUTH.

The twenty-seven New Testament books complete the Old, revealing Christ in person, in truth and reality, in the present and acknowledged.

He is a king like David;
The Heavens declare His glory...
And the firmament ...
