The Preaching of Paul

Strangers in the land of Egypt

God exalted them and brought them out


God put up with their ways

God destroyed seven nations
and distributed their land


God gave them judges until

Period of the Judges

They asked for a king 

God gave them Saul

Saul’s Kingdom

God removed Saul and raised
up David

Davidic Kingdom

God promised a seed

God has raised up Jesus

The point of the message is that God has
faithfully brought them through to each new phase of their covenant history, in
spite of their rebellion. Paul ends the historical preamble with God’s promise
to David of a seed. He will take them into the next phase of their covenant

The danger is that they will be "left behind" and no-longer be part of God's people
