The Old Testament Challenge (OTC) is a turn-key program to help everyone in your church understand and apply the Old Testament. Participants experience the content in multiple contexts; through sermons, group discussions and personal devotions. This 32-week series is designed for churches to teach, study, and discuss the entire Old Testament over a 9-month period.
Discover the Life-Changing Relevance of the Old TestamentThis dynamic program takes your church on an eye-opening, heart-searching journey through Scripture on three interlocking levels: -Whole congregation---The major themes of the Old Testament snap into focus during 32 weeks of creative and powerful messages that take your entire congregation through the Old Testament.-Small groups---Truths taught in corporate worship get reinforced through discussion and relationship. Small groups dig deeper into God's Word and apply it to their daily lives.-Individual---The Scriptures get up-close-and-personal as each participant takes a life-transforming journey through the first two-thirds of the Bible using the Taking the Old Testament Challenge individual reading guide. This threefold approach will drive the truths of Scripture deep into the heart and life of each participant, with applications designed to turn lessons into lifestyles and principles into practice.Creating a New Community: Life-Changing Stories from the PentateuchFrom the beginning to the end of our lives, we hunger for community. It's not just how we were created---it's why God, who enjoys relationship within his being as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, designed us to reflect his nature through loving and life-giving relationship with him and with each other. Only by participating in God's plan for community can the longing of our hearts be satisfied. These nine interweaving messages, small group studies, and personal study assignments search the Pentateuch to reveal God's passionate desire for intimacy with his people and among his people. Volume one of Old Testament Challenge educates through action, not just words. It's an exciting new approach for helping the people in your church move closer to God and to each other.Old Testament Challenge Vol. 1 kit includes: -Teaching Guide with materials for 9 OTC messages-9 messages by John Ortberg on audio CD -DVD and VHS video (use either format) presenting an OTC 'vision-casting' message by John Ortberg and 4 creative video elements for use during OTC messages-Discussion Guide with 9 lessons for small groups that follow the OTC sermons-CD-Rom that includes: 9 PowerPoint presentations to use with each OTC message, 10 FAQ resources about the Old Testament, and the 'Are You an Old Testament Expert?' interactive game.-Taking the Old Testament Challenge reading guide with a 40-week (and optional 32-week) reading plan-Implementation Guide for launching Old Testament Challenge in your churchAll materials except audio CD sermons by John Ortberg also sold separately.Other Old Testament Challenge kits -Kit 2---Stepping Out in Faith: Life-Changing Examples from the History of Israel (7 Sessions)-Kit 3---Developing a Heart for God: Life-Changing Lessons from the Wisdom Books (8 Sessions)-Kit 4---Pursuing Spiritual Authenticity: Life-Changing Words from the Prophets (8 Sessions)
