David & Goliath

David, the shepherd king, an annointed king in waiting, a king who goes to war for his people. This is how David the Bethlehemite is introduced to us in 1 Samuel 16 & 17. In chapter 16, David is found and annointed as king over Israel according to God's Word to Samuel but it will be a long time before David sits on a throne. Does this sound familiar?

God fed them in the desert

Jesus performing the miracle of feeding the five thousand in a desolate place is the work of God to reveal the Son of God's deity and to point us to His body as the bread of life, given from heaven as meat for eternal life.

Abraham & Isaac on the mountain

Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide”; as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”
