    Moses, Idolatry, and Interior Slavery

    Moses, Idolatry, and Interior Slavery

    Week five of our series on salvation history is here. And Moses is our man. I say Moses, you say? Ten Commandments. Ten plagues of Egypt. The golden calf. Parting of the Red Sea. Wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. What do all these pieces of his story have to do with the covenant God made through him? What was the covenant even about? Find out today with Richaél Lucero. Plus! Learn why the freed Hebrew slaves of Egypt weren't actually free. And how that damaged the covenant.

    Throughout the series Richaél Lucero will examine one of the six key figures, the covenant they made with God and its meaning.

    Abraham: The Promise of a Great Nation, Great Name, and Worldwide Blessing

    Abraham: The Promise of a Great Nation, Great Name, and Worldwide Blessing

    Abraham is the man of the hour during week four of our series on salvation history. And there are a lot of moving parts to his story: Before he was Abraham he was Abram. He was called out into the wilderness by God. He's responsible for the practice of circumcision. He sent his illegitimate son away. And was asked by God to slay his only-begotten (legitimate) son as a sacrifice. Are all these events random or do they fit together, and how? Richaél Lucero connects the dots to show the bigger picture at work.
