about this series

What is the overarching plot of the bible? Who are the key players? And what are their roles? When we have a firm grasp on *salvation history,* these questions are easily answered.

There are six key players in salvation history: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus. Every week, Richaél Lucero will examine the life of one of these figures, the covenant they made with God and its meaning.

You’ll leave with a better grasp on the scriptures and the truth of God’s continual presence in human history. And hopefully a deeper love of the Lord and his sacrifice on the cross.

Abraham: The Promise of a Great Nation, Great Name, and Worldwide Blessing

Abraham is the man of the hour during week four of our series on salvation history. And there are a lot of moving parts to his story: Before he was Abraham he was Abram.

King David is in the hot seat this week—week six of our series on salvation history. He’s the most important figure in the Old Testament. David’s “a man after God’s own heart” after all.

Or that he was the first to live the role of Son of God since Adam—we’re talking since creation here? Listen as Richaél Lucero answers these questions and more. Like, what about the blessing that came with being the Son of God and who it’s supposed to benefit?

They reveal a covenant that is not confined to Jesus the God-man or his Passion and death. But includes the events in the Upper Room on Holy Thursday and the height of the Divine Liturgy we celebrate every Sunday—the Eucharist. You’ll also learn why this covenant was foretold as a *new, everlasting, covenant of peace.*

You’ll also follow the growth of God’s family in the Old Testament through the covenants.
