Third Act: The Best for Last
This five-week series will introduce youth to the many ways Christ shows up in the Old Testament. The third act of a movie or play completes the story and/or offers resolutions or answers. It ties together the narrative elements that came earlier. Weaknesses shown in the first act are overcome in the climax of the third act. In the same way, Jesus is the climax of the story of Scripture. Through this series, youth will learn that the whole story of Christianity is about Jesus, that (unlike Adam) Jesus resisted temptation and can give us strength to do the same, that Hosea shows us Jesus’s love for the sinful, that Isaac prefigures the sacrifice Jesus would later make for us on the cross, and that (unlike Jonah) Jesus lovingly seeks to draw enemies to him.
