Creation, Faith and Christ in The Old Testament


Saturday... January 25, 2020

God’s Word is powerful. God brought everything into existence by the power of His Word. Furthermore, God’s Word proclaimed that a Savior will come. This promise was fulfilled in the person and work of Jesus Christ. God’s Word directs us to honor those in authority. But when government commands us to sin, then we must obey God. God’s Word is our guide and our light pointing us to Christ alone.

Dr. Steinmann will show us from the book of Genesis that God created everything in six days (Gen 1). Nothing exists apart from God’s creation.

Dr. Steinmann will also talk about obedience and disobedience to government in the Book of Daniel. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faithfully served Nebuchadnezzar. But when Nebuchadnezzar commanded that all people worship his golden statue, then the three youths did not obey the king’s command. God protected them from death in the fiery furnace (Dan 3).

Finally, Dr. Steinmann will talk about the promise of the Savior in the book of Genesis and beyond. The Old Testament repeatedly mentions the prophesies of the coming Savior who will save and redeem God’s people. The New Testament shows how Jesus fulfilled these prophesies in His life, death, and resurrection.

Dr. SteinmannAndrew Steinmann is Distinguished Professor of Theology and Hebrew at Concordia University Chicago. He holds a B.S. from the University of Cincinnati, a M.Div. from Concordia Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Studies from the University of Michigan.

He has served as a parish pastor, a Bible translator, a nursing home chaplain and as a professor at several institutions. His research interests include Hebrew and Aramaic languages, apocalyptic literature, wisdom literature and biblical chronology, and the book of Genesis.

Dr. Steinmann is the author of numerous articles in national and internationally recognized academic journals as well as seventeen books. He also served as a consultant for The Lutheran Study Bible and contributed to The Apocrypha: The Lutheran Study Edition and Lutheran Bible Companion. He is a regular guest on the radio program “Issues, Etc.” and on KFUO in St. Louis.
