Jacob Sermon Series

June - August 2012

From Cheater to Leader

The Story of Jacob

It has become my custom to preach on a single Old Testament character during the summer months. I do this for two reasons. First, we live in Biblically illiterate times. We simply do not know the Bible as well has previous generations. I hope to introduce you to some of the greatest stories ever told. Second, I believe in the witnesses of both the Old and New Testament. Our personal theology will never be complete without looking at the whole Bible.

In past summers we have looked at the lives of Abraham, Elijah, Esther, Joseph, Moses, Nehemiah and Ruth. This summer we are going to examine the life of Jacob. I have called this sermon series From Cheater to Leader. His story is found between the twenty-fifth and fiftieth chapters of Genesis. I hope you take the time to read his story so you can be prepared to hear each message. Great preaching is more possible when everyone is prepared to both speak and listen. Below you will find a copy of my tentative preaching schedule.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be with us each week. As always, manuscripts will be available upon request.

In His Service,

Russ Adams
