In a culture focused on man and his felt needs, pastors may be tempted to encourage congregations to look for themselves in the biblical narrative rather than Jesus. Yet just as the apostle Paul resolved to know nothing except Christ and Him crucified, today’s pastors must continue to preach with Jesus at the center. To illustrate this, Sinclair Ferguson shares seven principles that will aid the pastor in preaching Christ from the Old Testament.
15I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring5 and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.”
