In 52 brief snapshots we will try to paint a picture of Jesus as hinted at, indicated, outlined and glimpsed in the Old Testament. We will not be providing a comprehensive study but we hope it will be both accessible and helpful to you and serve to deepen both your understanding of, and relationship with, the greatest man who ever lived.

Optional Creative Responses
Creative responses to the weekly blog post
Bernice's previous blogs (which you can find by clicking on the tabs at the top of the page) have been aimed towards those who create art through scrapbooking or mixed media. This time we would like to encourage different creative responses.
This could be a song, a video, a drawing, a piece of art - digital or in any medium, a poem, a creative way of taking notes, a photograph, anything that is a creative way to respond to the ideas in the blog post and the Bible passages.
We look forward to seeing what ideas you have. Each week there will be a place at the end of each post for you to link your work from your blog, Instagram account or Flickr. You can also post your work in the Facebook group.
Creative Study Techniques
You can find out more about different ways to creatively study the Bible passage on the Identity blog.
For Visual Journallers
You can find some different ways to respond creatively on this introductory post.
If you decide to make an art journal Bernice suggests you use the inks, sprays, paints, stamps and papers you already own to make the journal truly yours. When you look at her pages on NewlyCreative they are there solely for inspiration, not for you to copy. Bernice uses a lot of Dylusions and other Ranger products but you don't have to. Use what you have. Some of the techniques may not work in the same way with different products but it doesn't matter. It means your journal will be unique to you.
You can find lots of ideas for techniques by visiting any of the art challenge blogs listed on the Art Challenge page and the Creative Bible Studies page.
If you have any questions please put them in the comments box below or ask them in the Facebook group.
