The book of Psalms is constructed and arranged in a brilliant way, and the sequence of Psalms covered in these programs is one of the most fascinating in the entire book. From Psalm 20 we are approaching the death of the Messiah, set out so powerfully in Psalm 22. We are taken through the Resurrection in Psalm 23 and the Ascension in Psalm 24. Psalm 25 expresses the sinner's confidence in the ascended Messiah, then from Psalm 26-31 we listen in to the Messiah's great prayers in His suffering.
God's passion for evangelism is so much greater than ours. Yet, the Lord insists on reaching the world through His people. The book of Jonah is the story of the success of God the Evangelist even through His unfaithful people. Throughout this book, we see how the Lord prepares Jonah for the task and how Jonah learns of his own need for the Lord in his affliction. He goes on to learn of God's great compassion, even for the most wicked people. The book of Jonah ends with Jonah receiving one of the most challenging and life transforming presentations of the love and grace of God.

The book of Ephesians is the most thorough and wide-ranging account of what it means to be the Church, in the New Testament. The Ephesian Christians lived in the shadow of the massive temple to Artemis, as we read in Acts 19. That 'wonder of the ancient world' must have dominated not only the skyline but also the thinking of the city. Ephesus was a city full of spiritual darkness and occult power.
Book by Book: Isaiah with Alec Motyer Isaiah has been described as the fifth gospel because it is so full of the birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension and return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Galatians had enjoyed the incredible freedom that Jesus gives us. However, "religious" people had joined the Galatian fellowship, claiming to have deeper knowledge from the ancient Scriptures, claiming to have a bigger picture than the simple good news that they had heard.

They were falling into a kind of religious slavery, making them think more and more about their own religious efforts and leaving little room for Jesus. Paul was desperate to rescue the Galatians from this dreadful cult.
