– The Shame of unbelief/The Glory of a magnificent promise (Genesis 15-17)
– The Shame of disobedience/The Glorious of God’s righteous standard (Exodus)
– The Shame of worldliness/The Glory of the coming King(Judges/1&2 Samuel)
– The Shame of utter human failure/The Glory of a fulfilled promise (jeremiah-Matthew)
– The Shame of the King’s first coming/The Glory of His life and work (Luke 2-the Gospels)

Galatians 4:4-7

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. (ESV)
