“Jesus in the Old Testament”
Wednesday, May 1.
Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the coming of the Son of Man” (Matthew 24:37).
From beginning to end, the Bible reveals the glory of Jesus. Jesus is the end of the Jewish story. To better understand that, we will want to understand the Old Testament.
The Bible mentions that Jesus is the last Adam. Adam is not just the first man, he is the representative of humanity. God blessed him and gave him responsibilities. These responsibilities were priest, king, prophets. Jesus is the holder of the same office but holds the greatest title.
In Romans 3:21, Paul tells us that Jesus is testified to by the laws and the prophets: “But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the law and the prophet testifies.” The law and prophets is the shorthand of the Old Testament. It prophesy and testify of the salvation which came through Christ.
There are many places in the Old Testament that talks about Christ. The prophet Joneh talks about it in Jonah 2:9, “Salvation is of the Lord.” It is important to understand that Christ work of salvation is a theme that resonate in the Old Testament. Let us heed Christ and enjoy eternal life.
Memory verse: Deuteronomy 18:15.
