Story may be the most compelling way to deliver information, which we can assume is why Jesus delivered so many of his messages in parables—story.
Russ Ramsey explores the narrative arc of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation in a new way in his three-part series: Retelling the Story. While staying true to Scripture, Russ shares these familiar stories with visual, compelling language allowing us to connect with God’s word through our imagination.
As one endorser wrote, Russ helps us “rescue truth from the jaws of familiarity.”
Russ is a pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, and allows his own life experience to influence his storytelling—as a father, for instance, exploring how Joseph must’ve felt as his wife delivered a baby in a barn.
He’s on the show today to share more about the series, and especially part one: “The Advent of The Lamb of God.” He’s also going to read an excerpt from it as a gift to us.
I hope you can sit somewhere quiet, and allow your imagination to picture each little detail of this beautiful story.
