What’s with All of the Signs and Wonders in the Old Testament?

Episode 570 Show Notes 

From the Show

You have a lot of big and miraculous things taking place as the story of redemption is unfolding, but after redemption is fully accomplished at the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, you see the pinnacle of God’s revelation. After that, what God gives us are the holy scriptures. You and I receive the benefits of what Jesus has done: The gift of the Holy Spirit, the forgiveness of sins, and salvation. We shouldn’t expect to see all of these big miracles in the same way in the Old Testament because redemption has been accomplished. Revelation has been finalized.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. In the news cycle and on social media, misinformation is often a topic of discussion. What do you think are some of the most misunderstood or misinformed ideas about Christianity?

2. It is my understanding that Enoch and Elijah were taken directly to heaven without experiencing physical death. If so, do they now have glorified and resurrected bodies, and did Elijah appear to Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration in a glorified body?

3. What is the point of praying for things if God already knows what the outcome for everything is going to be? 

4. Why did God choose to reveal himself in big and fantastic ways in the Old Testament (e.g., the burning bush, the parting of the Red Sea, etc.), but today he does not reveal himself in those ways?
