The Old Testament is a book written in three levels, the first is a narrative account the history of the human race and then of Israel. The second direct specific prophecies of the future. The third is written in code language, outlining the life, death and resurrection of the Messiah. All three are remarkable and supernatural in their depth and scope.
- The historical books are accurate and though they have been often disputed by skeptics throughout history, yet again and again, their accuracy has been proven correct by archaeology. Skepticism is in itself a terrible way to approach life and is based on unbelief. Thorough examination of the Bible is commended and for the believer his or her faith will be confirmed. However the amazing facts of history seldom convert the skeptic.
- The prophetic voice of the Old Testament is also remarkable, and there are countless prophecies that have been fulfilled in astonishing detail. Daniel prophesied that Messiah would be cut off, but not for Himself in 29 AD which is the exact year of the crucifixion. He prophesied the sudden rise and fall of Alexander the Great. Daniel said that when he died, his empire would be divided into four parts and none would go to a son and heir. Alexander’s empire was divided by four of his generals.
- The code language of the Old Testament is in itself a great proof of the prophetic power and scope of the Old Testament, since by its own very nature, it was not and could not have been understood by those who wrote them. Each one created a piece of a jig saw puzzle without ever seeing how they fitted together or seeing the whole picture.
By these three means the Bible comes to us in powerful and confirming form. It is the supernatural message of the Creator to His beloved human race. The study of the Old Testament is to hear God speak and confirm our faith in the midst of a skeptical generation.

Baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch
Study about the Baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch.Baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch (16.83 MB)
26 Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert. 27 So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, 28 was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. 29 Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot.”
30 So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”
31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him. 32 The place in the Scripture which he read was this:
“He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
33 In His humiliation His justice was taken away,
And who will declare His generation?
For His life is taken from the earth.”
34 So the eunuch answered Philip and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?” 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. 36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”
37 Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.”
And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”
38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. 39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing. 40 But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.
New King James Version (NKJV)
“I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore…” (Genesis 22:17).
“Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.” (Genesis 28:14).
A study on the subject of Israel, including:
- Different views on Israel
- God’s original plan for Israel
- God’s promises to Israel
- Israel and the new covenant
- Miracle of Israel in history
- Why did Israel fail – Romans 9
- How can Jews be saved today – Romans 10
- What is the future for Israel – Romans 11
This series covers the whole plan fof salvation. It starts with knowing our need: the awful power of unrighteousness and even worse religious self righteousness. When we were powerless to help ourselves, Christ died for our sins. Salvation is a gift to those who trust in Christ.
Baptism with the Spirit is not a condition of salvation but the inheritance of those who are saved. By this we experience the death and Resurrection of Christ, which enables us to live a life of victory in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The series was recorded in early 2013 at Epsom Christian Fellowship. You can download other messages recorded there from http://epsomcf.org.uk/downloads/downloads2013/

A study from Mark 11:1-33
Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!”, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”, “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”, “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
Recorded during the New Year Conference 2010-11 at the Christian Fellowship School, Liverpool between Thursday 30 December 2010 – Sunday 2 January 2011.The King is Coming (10.6 MB)
Every man and woman was created to reign as Kings and Priests with Jesus. The gospel restores this great calling in the life of the believer. The lives of the Kings of Israel and Judah teach us how this is possible. Here we see the whole spectrum of human personality from the cleverest man who ever lived to the most evil dictator, from the man who was too nice to ever say “no” to the man who seemed to lack every trace of conscience. Come and look in the mirror of scripture and find God’s answer to every problem of human personality.
This course covers:
- The anatomy of moral failure.
- The blueprint of spiritual success.
- Human personality: Its pitfalls (depression, anger, ambition) and its capacity to bear authority as Kings in the image of God.
- Jesus the King of Kings; our example, and the perfect King.
