Salvation in History

Lessons and reflections from Tabletalk, issue March 2010

The salvation that Christianity proclaims is a salvation grounded in history. God enters into history, or I should say God create history, and work through real people, institutions, and events to save His people.

Through studying the Old Testament, we can see how Christ and His church are promised, through people like Abraham, Joshua and David. In events like the Exodus, and in the institution of monarchy. We can learn from them, these people and events from long ago, how to please our common God in our day.
