How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

33:6-9 “Nevertheless, the time will come when I will heal Jerusalem’s damage and give her prosperity and peace. I will restore the fortunes of Judah and Israel and rebuild their cities. I will cleanse away their sins against me, and I will forgive all their sins of rebellion. Then this city will bring me joy, glory, and honor before all the nations of the earth! The people of the world will see the good I do for my people and will tremble with awe!”

NT

20:17-19 As Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside privately and told them what was going to happen to him. “When we get to Jerusalem,” he said, “the Son of Man will be betrayed to the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. They will sentence him to die. Then they will hand him over to the Romans to be mocked, whipped, and crucified. But on the third day he will be raised from the dead.”


OT Flash Points

In ravaged and desolate streets, joyful voices will once again be heard
Singing: “Give thanks to the LORD Almighty
He is good
His faithful love endures forever!”
Their motto: “The LORD is our righteousness!”

NT Flash Points

God punished and restored His chosen people, Israel and you and me
Pointing to the day He would tear His own Son to accomplish judgment then resurrect Him, giving us eternal life


Perspective

Faith in God, faith alive in Me
Our faith gives us a view of the completion of God’s plan of GRACE so that TRUTH will reign
