I am being challenged daily by the writings in “The Journey to the Cross.” In this forty-day Lenten devotional, best-selling author Paul David Tripp invites us to set aside time from the busyness of our lives to focus on the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus.

Have trouble grasping the Old Testament? Wondering what’s the big deal and can’t we just live in the New Testament? The Old and New Testaments of the Bible, comprised of 66 books, tell one cohesive story of redemption, climaxing in the person and work of Jesus Christ, the Savior! The Old Testament is vital to understanding why the story of Jesus is so critical in the New Testament. In less than 10 minutes, you can read through the key elements of this wonderous first segment of scripture.
