This past month, I have enjoyed digging into the major prophets to learn and teach on the Biblical theology of Babylon. It is amazing to look at the precision, the details, and the accuracy of God’s Word as He has revealed Himself to us through Scripture. The objective of this study is to examine our holy God, His promises to His remnant (covenant) people, and learn from how He uses kings and kingdoms to accomplish His plan. For me, it has been rich to dig into Isaiah and Jeremiah with a renewed fervor for their prophetic message of repentance, and the clarity with which the O.T. points to the completed work of Christ Jesus on the cross. Christ has delivered His people, thrown on the yokes of slavery, and restored, calling a people who were once not His people, to Himself.

I’d love to share some of this learning with you if you’re up to dig into God’s Word. The lessons have been recorded and are online on our church web site @ pacifichope.com.

Here is a break down of each lesson, all of which are on the Pacific Hope site, under the “Listen to a sermon” link:
