Video: God makes a promise

Thousands of years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem, God made a promise to Adam and Eve. He promised the coming of a Deliverer who would crush Satan. Watch how in By This Name, John Cross unpacks Genesis 3:14-15—the promise of the offspring of the woman.

“This was the first of many promises about this future offspring of Eve. This man would be known as the Anointed One because of the special assignment given to him by God. The task the LORD had for this Chosen One was to deliver or save mankind from the consequences of sin. For this reason he would also be known as the Promised Deliverer.”

They also take the viewers to key sites in Israel, Egypt and Jordan to provide historical and geographical context. We present a selection of these video clips. All of them are included with By This Name, either on DVD or accessible online.
