Welcome to a study focused on the lives of the Patriarchs: Isaac, Jacob and Joseph who we call “Covenant Keepers.” The Patriarch Abraham’s life is covered in another study I have written.
These Patriarchs of the nation Israel were descendants of Abraham, uniquely called by God to pass on the faith to the next generation of believers in the One True God. They remained faithful to the Covenant, overcoming obstacles and threats of assimilation and annihilation often waiting years for God to fulfill His Promises, in His timing, to them.
This study provides daily questions, audio and/or manuscript teaching, PowerPoint and handouts. It can be used for individual or group settings. A disclaimer: my manuscripts are not word perfect. Instead they are a model for you of what my notes look like when I’ve finished my study. I do not read them as I lecture but I create the manuscript so I can return to them at a later date. Use any and all parts of this material to study and/or teach to others.
My hope and prayer for you as you read and study is that you will see yourself as part of God's great narrative, His Story of Grace and Redemption. You will identify with the ups and downs of these ancient people of faith, learning to trust and believe in the One True God.
Blessings and love, Dianne
