It’s the end of summer, school has started back, which means it’s time to jump into the Hebrew scriptures (Old Testament) for this time of year. Storied follows a cyle of Old Testament in the Fall, New Testament in the Spring, and we break for Summer (all of this inspired by the Narrative Lectionary). Be sure to bookmark this page as each week will get linked back here as an archive.
Creation by the Word
Setting the foundation that Jesus is behind it all from beginning to end. Jesus is the Word that brings all of creation into existence.
9/10 — Creation by the Word (Genesis 1:1–2:4a)
Bless the World
From the beginning, it’s always been God’s plan to bless the world. Genesis and Exodus paint a picture of how God begins doing this after the fall.

The prophets give us a story that moves us from desperation towards hope, awaiting the arrival of the Messiah to deliver us all. This series will take us pre-exile to post-exile and then towards Christmas where we celebrate the birth of this hope, Jesus the Messiah.
