Many Christians are not quite sure what to do with the Old Testament. Common mistakes in reading it include fanciful allegory, unattached moralism, and allegorical moralism (combining the other two!). Yet the Old Testament is not just a collection of inspiring stories about people who triumphed, above all it is a message about Jesus Christ, especially his sufferings and the glories that would follow-that is, the gospel. The shape of the Old Testament shows us its incompleteness and points us to Christ either directly or through some of its major figures: Jesus is the new Adam, the new Israel, and the new David.
- Shows how the Old Testament is linked to the incarnation of Jesus
- Demonstrates both good and bad ways of discerning truth from Scripture
- Gives the reader a more holistic view of faith by connecting and enlarging our view of the Old Testament

Michael1 Stars Out Of 5Dissapointed!September 1, 2017MichaelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1Is Jesus in the Old Testament? He is, but not shown in this 34 page booklet! I was hoping for examples. Instead I got information I already knew. Jesus being the new Adam. The family tree from Abraham to Jesus. Comparing Jesus in the desert for 40 days to the Israelis. Etc.
For 5$ I can't complain. But I would rather have put it towards something that in fact showed Jesus in the Old testament. Save your money. I wouldn't recommend this!
