Publisher's Description

If Jesus didn't come along until the New Testament, what is He doing in the Old Testament? In his forthcoming book, 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures, author Bob Beasley, a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary, seeks to answer that question in many more than 101 ways. In fact, even though the Old Testament, or ""the Hebrew Scriptures,"" was written 2,000 to 500 years prior to Jesus' earthly ministry, some say the Lord may be found on its every page. Just as a great novel or movie will provide early warnings of things to come later on, the Old Testament is full of foreshadowing, specific prophesies, mighty works, and pre-incarnate appearances of the Savior. He is prefigured by men like Adam, Noah, Joseph, Moses, and David. Jesus is foreshadowed by furniture, rocks, food, a snake, doorways, trees, colors, and animals in many ways. He appears as smoke and fire and as the mysterious Angel of the Lord, all of this hundreds of years before born to Mary in Bethlehem. On the road to Emmaus following His resurrection, Jesus spoke with some of His followers. Luke tells us, beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the [Hebrew] Scriptures concerning himself (Luke 24:27). In a compact and readable 101 chapters surveying Genesis to Malachi, Beasley merely scratches the surface of the wonderful truths of Jesus in the Old Testament, sure to deepen anyone's understanding of and love for the entire Bible. This is a book for everyone, new Christians as well as old, and also for those seeking answers as to whether of not the Bible is trustworthy. The impact of the foreshadowing of Jesus is truly powerful. 101 Portraits will open the Scriptures for you as never before.

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED ABOUT LUKE 24:27? JUST WHAT DID JESUS TELL HIS SHOCKED FOLLOWERS WHEN HE EXPLAINED "THE THINGS CONCERNING HIMSELF" ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS? WELL, I THINK BOB BEASLEY HAS GIVEN US SOME EXCITING POSSIBILITIES TO CONSIDER! THIS APPEARS TO BE A VERY BALANCED AND EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND LOOK AT JESUS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. IT'S NOT JUST FOR NEW BELIEVERS, BUT IS ALSO EXCELLENT FOR ALL WHO LOVE THE SCRIPTURES, AND DESIRE TO SEE HOW BEAUTIFULLY THEY INTEGRATE FROM BEGINNING TO END! DO YOU LIKE TO TEACH THE BIBLE? IF SO, READ THIS BOOK! (AND, KEEP YOUR BIBLE BESIDE YOU WHILE YOU'RE AT IT!) I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT EACH OF THE 101 SECTIONS IS ONLY 2 PAGES LONG, THUS ALSO MAKING THIS A FANTASTIC DAILY DEVOTIONAL! I'M RECOMMENDING THIS BOB BEASLEY BOOK TO JUST ABOUT EVERYONE I KNOW! CAN YOU TELL I'M EXCITED? CHAPLAIN DAN

    Great devotional look at Christ in the OT

    Many Christians are bewildered by the Old Testament. They start reading in Genesis and give up by the time Leviticus comes around. They remember bits and pieces of a smattering of OT Bible stories: David and Goliath, the Red Sea, Daniel and the lion's den, etc. But the Old Testament (except for Psalms and Proverbs) remains generally obscure and mysterious to many.

    For those who have discovered the many connections between the Old Testament and Jesus Christ, this is quite sad. Recognizing how Jesus fulfills the types of the Old Testament truly makes the Bible come alive. Nothing is so spiritually impacting as finding Christ in the Old Testament, and being moved by the picture of our God so beautifully illustrated by His works with the Israelites.

    Bob Beasley is eager for the average Christian to become familiar with the many portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Old Testament. In his book 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures, he marches through the Old Testament highlighting many of the clearest pictures of Jesus found there. He uses promise/fulfillment and type/anti-type models as he explains the significance of the OT's witness to Christ.

    Beasley explains:

    "...Jesus does not jump into the pages of history as a little child in a stable in Bethlehem. His story begins much further back in history than that.... all history is His Story. Jesus is the Creator God, the promised Redeemer, the great Prophet, Priest, and King of the Hebrew Scriptures. He is Yahweh, Jehovah--the great I AM--of the burning bush. He is Immanuel--God with us!"

    The book deals with 101 such places in the Old Testament. Each is given just two pages of space, which is why no passage is really covered in too much depth. The result is a good introduction to the Old Testament witness to Christ, most helpful for the new Christian who may be inexperienced with the Old Testament.

    Beasley will give one an eye for finding Christ all throughout the Old Testament. The book's emphasis on the unity of the Bible and the person and work of Jesus Christ make it especially good. Anyone interested in learning more about the harmony of the Bible and how the OT speaks of Jesus Christ, should certainly consider this book. With its simple layout, 101 Portraits makes for a great devotional book. Each portrait of Christ can be considered slowly and provide meat for one's soul.
