In The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie takes readers on a journey from Genesis to Malachi. Through the daily readings you'll see Christ in fresh, new ways, and deepen your understanding of Scripture.
We tend to look to the New Testament to tell us about Jesus, yet it was the Old Testament about which Jesus said, the Scriptures point to me! In The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie takes readers from Genesis through Malachi, shining the light of Christ on the promise of a descendent who will put an end to the curse of sin; the story of a father who offers up his son as a sacrifice; the symbol of a temple where people can meet with God; the prophecy of a servant who will suffer; the person of a king who will rule with righteousnessand so much more. Day by day throughout the year, readers will see the beauty of Christ in fresh new ways, creating a deeper understanding and appreciation for who Jesus is and what he accomplished through his Cross and Resurrection.
