Great Video on Story of the Old Testament

Great Video on Story of the Old Testament January 27, 2017

From The Gospel Project, is a great little video, only three minutes, which provides a short but able summary of the Old Testament.

I like resources like this for two reasons:

First, for most lay Christians, the stuff before Jesus is a bit of a blur of names, places, and dates, with no conceivable narrative unity.

Second, some lay Christians like to jump from Genesis 3 to Romans 5 and ignore the story of Israel and even minimize the Gospels as necessary parts of the divine plan for salvation.

Videos like this, even if I might say a few things different or emphasize other stuff, serve to overcome these problems.
