Using the visual aid of an hourglass diagram, Thomas Bergen (MSC Residence Coordinator), outlined how the progression from Genesis to Revelation (Past to Future) in the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John each connect an Old Testament covenant to the fulfillment of those prophecies in Christ. The stories of Noah, Abraham, and Moses are mirrored by the titles of Jesus as the True Israel, True Representative of Humanity, and Redeemer of All. At the centre, the book of Mark links the Davidic covenant to Jesus as the True King. The Good News is that we are all invited to enter God’s story, which gives us identity, mission, and purpose. [KH]
