"I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you...
by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that
word which I preached to you—unless you
believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of
all that which I also received: that Christ died for
our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He
was buried, and that He rose again the third day
according to the Scriptures"
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
The gospel is not only a New Testament understanding, as the gospel was also revealed to the Old Testament saints.
Abraham demonstrated his faith in the gospel whenever he erected an altar and sacrificed an innocent lamb. The shed blood of the lamb symbolized what the coming Lamb of God would accomplish at Calvary.
This Spiritual Debt Bible study lesson reveals how the Old Testament Kinsman-Redeemer ruling became fulfilled by Jesus Christ. He did this by fulfilling the three redemption requirements (Leviticus 25:25-28).
Following the Rapture of the Church Jesus will rise from His seated position in heaven and will become the fulfillment of the Old Testament Levitical redemption law. He will accomplish this by proving He had satisfied the three Levitical redemption requirements. Once it is confirmed that Jesus satisfied the three requirements, He can then open the Lamb's Book of Life, and announce that all names preserved in the Book have been officially redeemed. Until this redemption transaction takes place the Millennium reign remains on hold.
The three redemption requirements are:
I view this lesson on the Kinsman-Redeemer as being one of the most exciting and encouraging portions of Scripture.

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.
Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!
David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."
Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.
Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."
Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!
Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).
Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.
John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.
Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.
Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.
Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
