- apply the gospel found in Genesis to issues such as shame, fear, and the desire for security and significance;
- develop your longing for what is ahead when the world is once again made new.
Gain a fresh perspective on the book of Genesis, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more, when you join with Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament!
