Part 1 - Creation: The Foundation of the Gospel
Overview: The Creation of the Church
The Old Testament scriptures are testifying of Jesus Christ. Contained in these scriptures are types and models that foreshadow realities concerning Christ. Of such is the Sabbath Day. It points to a rest found in the person and work of Jesus Christ. The creation of the nation of Israel, where in the Exodus a special nation was established by God, is a model of another creation work, the work of creating and sanctifying the Church. As God set apart Israel, so too is the Church sanctified by the work of Christ.
