We can all learn from hard knocks, but it’s a lot less painful to learn by example. First Corinthians 10:6 and 11 say that the experiences of those in the Bible were recorded for our examples. The stories of Moses, Abraham, Joseph & David are full of great examples, both good and bad.
This DVD album was recorded Live at Charis Bible College, Colorado. Each DVD contains one teaching session.
The reluctant leader who became a friend of God and led the nation of Israel out of slavery. He stayed faithful when everyone else rebelled and met with God face to face. Moses shows us how to balance boldness and humility.
Our father of faith, or was he? Our true ancestor who walked in faith with the unknown God, with no example to follow, on a path that had never been walked before; the journey from idol worshipper to man of faith.
Called in his youth, Joseph heard from God and despite his circumstances, his servant heart knew that God would not let him down. He went through the most serious of times in order to receive his rightful inheritance in God. Joseph is a true example of certain faith and persistence in spite of adverse circumstances.
Slaying giants, falling to temptation; taking the nation to its highest position among the surrounding nations, running from his own son. David was the leader who was truly human with high spots and low spots just like the rest of us. He shows us that it is our availability not our ability that enables us to accomplish great things with God.
