Preaching Christ from the Old Testament

From Series: Basics 2010

Genesis 3:15  (ID: gs937)

In today’s culture, many pastors are tempted to ask of their congregations, “Where am I in the narrative?” rather than asking, “Who and where is the person and work of Jesus Christ in this narrative?”. It is infinitely easier to speak of man and his felt needs rather than on Jesus Christ, and yet Paul says that he resolves to know nothing except Christ and Him crucified. With clarity and precision, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson shares seven principles from Genesis 3:15 to aid the pastor as he preaches 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.”
