THE PATRIARCHAL AGE
Bible history is divided into 3 ages: Patriarchal Age from Adam to Moses, Mosaic Age from Moses till the death of Christ, and Christian Age from the cross till the end of time. The Old Testament was written about God’s dealing with man in the times before Christ, history that we are to learn “for our encouragement and hope” (Rom 15:4).
This week we shall focus on the Patriarchal Age, cir 4,000 B.C. till 2,500 B.C., covered in your Bible from Genesis 1 to Exodus 14. The famous men in this period were called Patriarchs (meaning fathers) and they included such men as Adam, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. A brief review of this time is given in Hebrews 11. In the course of time, men became exceedingly sinful. Only Noah was found to be righteous whom God saved with his family from the great flood.
As time permits, I will come to your house (anywhere in NE Tarrant County) and show your family a film on the Patriarchal Age at no cost. Just call 817-282-4918 for an appointment. Other preachers are available in other localities.
