The Gospel in the Old Testament: Paradise Lost and Regained

The Old Testament and the New Testament tell one story: the rich story of God redeeming the world through Jesus. This sermon will focus on the two attempts of Satan to destroy God's plans, one succeeded (sort of) and one failed (gloriously)!

John 5:39
2 Corinthians 11:3
1 Timothy 2:14
Matthew 3:13-4:4
