I have to admit I am mooching off of another blog on this one. It has been a busy couple weeks with the end of the semester and all. In this blog post linked at the bottom you will find a wonderful list of Old Testament prophecy and promise that point to Jesus, and I pray that you see how Jesus has fulfilled all of those notions.
Some who read the Old Testament refuse to see Jesus there, but we know from Jesus that all the Scriptures are about him. When two disciples were on the road to Emmaus, after Christ had been crucified and raised from the dead, Jesus appeared to them “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24.27). So yes, Jesus is in the Old Testament, and Ben Falconer has done a wonderful job showing us that in his sermon and in Kevin DeYoung’s blog post. It is when we realize that the entire Bible is about Jesus, we will better be able to see the truth of our savior. Who is Jesus? You may find him from Genesis to Revelation.
