David denHartog teaches from Genesis 28 and John 1, in the first part of the Christmas series, “Portraits of Christ in the Old Testament.” A picture, or knowing what someone looks like, is often the first step of an attraction to someone; leading to falling in love. The Old Testament paints a picture of Christ and the stories and incidents point toward Him. The New Testament reveals Him as He came in flesh. Our hope is that through this Christmas series, you can get a portrait of Jesus and fall more deeply in love with him.
