In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1


      The Old Testament begins not only the creation as we know it, but our study of the Word of God. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, while usually delegated to the New Testament, is definitely preexistent in the Old Testament. The preexistent Christ, the living Word, was very involved in the creation. "All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made" (John 1:3).  Jesus' ministry is anticipated in Genesis 3:15, suggesting that the "Seed" of the woman who will bruise the Serpent's (Satan's) head is Jesus Christ, the "Seed" of Abraham mentioned by Paul in Galatians 3:16.  The greatest revelation of Christ in the Old Testament is found in God's establishment of His covenant with Abraham. God made glorious promises to Abraham, and Jesus is the major fulfillment of those promises, a truth detailed by Paul, again in Galatians. Much of the entire Holy Bible is built upon the Abrahamic covenant and its ultimate flowering Jesus Christ.
