Jesus is both our Representative and our Example, and in the wilderness he was victorious over temptation and he shows us how we can face it as well.
After the story of the Old Testament, God’s people spent a lot of time waiting. When would God make good on His promises? When would the Messiah come? Hundreds of years after the return to the Promised Land, a man came baptizing in the wilderness, and God spoke once again.
In spite of all that has happened through the story, God’s plan has always been to Restore everything through Jesus. Join us as Pastor Josh teaches about The Happy Ending.
