One of my favorite scriptures is

“Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
Mathew 13:52

In this spirit, I appreciate the rich spiritual foundation of the Old Testament and the revelation it brings in understanding New Covenant teaching.  For this reason, I am excited to share with you my passion for the Scriptures.  Over the years I have found great joy in understanding the big picture of God’s plan and then drilling down into the details to understand how it relates to everyday life.  It seems as if many of us struggle to understand God’s ultimate intention and get tripped up in what I call subplots.  It can be easy to make the subplot the main plot in our lives.  One of my goals for this site is to help us keep the big picture first and foremost as we study the major and minor plots of God’s amazing story.

One of the big picture plans I am referring to is the Messiah’s fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant.  I have completed the first draft of In Pursuit of the Promise which you can freely access by following this link.  I find that framing my spiritual questions and personal walk with Christ inside of major biblical themes such as the Abrahamic covenant add great value to my journey with the Lord.

Throughout this site, in places where I have scriptural quotations, I have attempted to hyperlink to the corresponding chapter at biblegateway.com, allowing the reader to easily check the scriptural context.  As you begin, let me thank you for spending time with me on this journey and please know your comments are welcome and appreciated.  I would love your feedback and the opportunity to respond to comments or questions.

May the Lord’s blessing rest on all my friends, both new and old.
