The word most central to the theme of the Old Testament is not “law,” but “promise.”
There are many promises in the Hebrew Scriptures of a Messiah that would save God’s people. Contained in some of those promises is this mystery: The Messiah will bring salvation to God’s people by suffering. But how can this be? How can victory come through death?
In this fourth message from the series “Hope for Exiles: The Teachings of First Peter,” Dr. David Rhoades shows how God revealed to the early church the answer to this mystery.
