The Gospel of the Canaan Journey

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, Dec 10, 2003 - Religion
From the Preface In commenting on the journey of the children of Israel from Egypt to Canaan, the Apostle Paul said in I Cor 10:11, All these things happened unto them by way of example and are written for our admonition. Here Paul teaches us that we can learn from this account of the history of Israel in two basic ways: (1) by looking at the example they set, and (2) by examining the fundamental principles and admonitions derived from their experiences. In these studies, we hope to accomplish two things: see their example and discover the Gospel of the Canaan journey. It has often been said that there is no gospel in the Old Testament. The writer does not agree with this position and believes that there is just as much gospel in the Old Testament as in the New. It is there in type and symbol, in object lessons. The people looked forward to the cross in Old Testament times, but today people look back to the cross. The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed; the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. Beautifully pictured in the Pentateuch is the Gospel of the Canaan Journey. These lessons have been prepared to make available practical material suitable for the pulpit, devotionals, Sunday school lessons, and prayer meeting discussions. The method of chronological development reveals the way the gospel is seen today. By making application, the reader is enabled to apply gospel truth and the saving power of Jesus Christ to his own soul and to those to whom he might minister. Herbert W. Byrne
