God’s Big Picture #7: The Present Kingdom
The story so far: everything that has happened so far has been anticipating the arrival of God's promised rescuer.
Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament: All the promises of the Kingdom of God find their ultimate fulfillment in Him.
Jesus is God's people: He lives the life that God's people were meant to live, but never could. He succeeds where they fail.
Jesus is God's place: Jesus is the one who gives us direct access to God in personal relationship.
Jesus is God's rule and blessing: Jesus is the one through whom God establishes His rule and blessing.
The story of the Old Testament and of the four gospels are all going to one place... the crucifixion of Jesus.
