Concubines, slavery, the murder of women and children, adultery, and conspiracy are just a few of the topics in Old Testament books that can discourage pastors from embracing the Hebrew Scriptures and stick with the New Testament books. It's understandable. On top of that, we are living in the New Covenant and much of what we find in Old Testament books is not really meant for modern day Christians.

In this episode we look at the challenges of preaching the Old Testament, important dynamics preachers need to be aware of as they preach Old Testament books, and if a pastor wants to step into preaching the Old Testament for the first time or first time in a long time, what are some sermon series that make for a great starting point?
