Revealed in the New: Genesis is a Bible study for upper middle and high school students who are already familiar with the basic Genesis narrative. These thirteen lessons look at key stories from Genesis through the lens of the New Testament. How does John's creation narrative fit with the accounts in Genesis? What does Paul teach on the subject of Adam and Eve? Should the Pharisees have known the answer to their question about the greatest commands before they asked it? What does the story of Noah teach us about grace and the end of the world? And how could anyone who knew the story of Joseph fail to recognize Jesus as the Savior sent by God? This book looks in detail at these and other insights into Genesis that are revealed in the New Testament. As Augustine of Hippo observed: "The New is in the Old concealed; the Old is in the New revealed."

Revealed in the New: Genesis J.A. Busick First, this is a study guide, what in my day were called “workbooks.” The student is expected to answer questions about the material. And Busic doesn't give them the easy way out – no true/false or multiple choice here – you write out the answers in the included blank lines. Writing while thinking may be a new experience for some students. The guide is intended for 7th to 12th grade students who have some familiarity with the Old Testament narratives. The content is a concept – that of Salvation History, aka Healing History or Heilsgeschichte – the notion of God's work in the times of the Old Testament culminating in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ. Thus the sacrifice of Christ is God's end game for the salvation of mankind, which has gone on throughout human history. I think the students Busic targets can handle the abstraction of the Salvation History idea, and the challenge of it over memorizing events might motivate them... More > to further study. The begats and begots, the slays and the slews, and shallts and shalt nots can become seriously dry. Busic introduces the “so, what” of all the stories. A teacher’s manual is soon to come. I expect it to be needed. These kids will have a lot of new questions.< Less
