Even though Jesus isn’t named in the Old Testament, every section refers to him, describes him, or prophecies about him in various ways. Useful for Bible studies on Jesus and for personal enrichment, Finding Jesus in the Old Testament will also be a handy resource for Bible teachers wanting to better connect New Testament lessons on Jesus with Old Testament backgrounds.

Jesus in the Old Testament? You Bet! When Jesus the Jewish Messiah, was on this earth, the respected rabbi taught about Himself from the Old Testament (there was no New Testament at the time). After His resurrection, He said to His disciples, "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Messiah to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures (the Jewish Scriptures) the things concerning himself" (Luke 24:25-27 KJV). Your Christian faith is built upon the Jewish Tanakh (the Old Testament). Therefore we should be able to go through the Jewish Scriptures and find Jesus virtually everywhere. That is exactly what we do in "Finding Jesus in the Old Testament."

The Old Testament And The Significance Of Jesus

A perennial question throughout the history of the Christian faith has centered on the character of the Old Testament and its relationship to Jesus Christ. It is in this area that Christians and Jews have parted ways, creating a deep and enduring chasm between the two faith communities. With this new volume, Fredrick Holmgren aids in closing this hurtful breach by engaging with views on both sides of this important conversation. Holmgren dialogues with Christians from every point on the theological spectrum, urging the church to a new respect for the Jewish Bible, the enduring role of the Old Testament as "Christian scripture," and the valuable contributions of Judaism to the Christian faith. Warning the church against either caricaturing the Old Testament and Judaism or romanticizing Christianity, Holmgren sensitively shows that the New Testament proclamation of newness in Christ carries forward the witness of the Old Testament without making obsolete its Jewish interpretation.

Jesus did not come from nowhere! He was long awaited by a people who were educated…to expect God's presence in the messiness of their own history.—From the Introduction Not only was Jesus a Jew, his coming was foreshadowed in stories from Genesis to the prophets. Father Richard Veras invites us to enter a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the doors of familiar and not-so-familiar incidents in the Old Testament. Ever wonder, for example, why God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? Even more, why Abraham was willing to do it? Puzzled as to why there are two creation accounts in Genesis? What's the problem with being a Samaritan? And what does any of this have to do with Jesus and our life in him? The author explores these and other issues with one goal in mind: to "aid the reader to come to a deeper certainty about Jesus Christ." "This book makes the Word of God accessible to the young and, in fact, to anyone who wishes to look at the Bible with the eyes of a faith in touch with the grace of the Jewish people. The insights are quite valuable, but the real attractiveness of the book is the faith that it inspires through a simple, straightforward and imaginative reading of the Sacred Text." —Father Francis Martin, John Paul II Cultural Center, Washington, D.C.

A New York Times Bestseller! In the 2014 New York Times bestseller Jesus on Trial, David Limbaugh made a case for the Gospels as hard evidence of the existence of God, drawing on his own spiritual journey from skeptic to believer. Now, in The Emmaus Code, Limbaugh unlocks the mysteries of the Old Testament and reveals hints of Jesus Christ's arrival through all thirty-nine Old Testament books.

Although not in every line and perhaps not on every page, the message of Christ overshadows the entire Old Testament. Finding Christ is the key that both unlocks and locks in the message of the whole Word of God. Jesus Christ is God's final, perfect, incomparable Word. Beginning at Moses seeks to follow the example of Christ Himself Who, "beginning at Moses and all the prophets," expounded from all the Scripture the things concerning Himself.

You'll understand Jesus' presence in the Old Testament in a new way as you journey with Pastor O. S. Hawkins through every book of the Bible. We often assume Jesus is only in the New Testament. We even think of Him differently than "the God of the Old Testament." Yet Christ appears in every book of the Bible, sometimes in words, sometimes in shadow, sometimes in prophecy. As Jesus revealed to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, He can be found "in all the Scriptures" (Luke 24:27). And as we learn to find Jesus in every verse, we realize His constant presence in our lives as well. In The Bible Code, bestselling author of The Joshua Code, O. S. Hawkins, takes us from Genesis to Revelation as he illuminates Scripture through the light of Christ. Because all of the Bible, and all of life for that matter, is about Jesus. In Exodus, He is the Passover Lamb. In Deuteronomy, He is the Bread of Life. In Song of Solomon, He is our Bridegroom. How does our understanding of God as provider grow through understanding Abraham's willingness to sacrifice Isaac? What does Rahab's scarlet cord in the book of Joshua have to do with Jesus' sacrifice on the cross? How does Jesus' reference to Himself as the Good Shepherd relate to the Psalms, and what does that teach us about God's character? As we seek Jesus in the whole Bible, we find life. Not just eternal life in the then and there, but abundant life in the here and now. Join O. S. Hawkins in this beautiful exploration into the depths of Scripture. As you see Jesus' redemptive story from Creation to eternity, you will draw closer to the God who has loved you from the beginning.

You may have sat through countless sermons, numerous Sunday School classes, and Bible Studies. You know Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:14), so you may ask, why look for Jesus in the first five books of the Old Testament?To answer the question of why look for Jesus in the Pentateuch, let us look at something Jesus said to a couple of His disciples, after He arose from the grave. We find this passage in Luke 24:27, "Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself." And we find these words of Jesus, "For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me." (John 4:46)Notice that Jesus explained himself "from all the Scripture." As believers in Christ Jesus we may spend a substantial amount of time studying New Testament theology. In our study of God, for that is what the word "theology" means, we dig deeply into the New Testament, the covenant which was made by the blood of Jesus, as documented in Mark 14:24, "And he [Jesus] said to them, 'This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many...'"Mistakenly, in our study of theology, we often study the LORD of the Old Testament without much regard for the truth that Christ Jesus, the Son of God (John 20:30-31), the one who Created all things (Colossians 1:15-18); this Jesus, as the Word of God (John 1:1), is visible and easily found throughout the Old Testament (Romans 1:20).This booklet is intended to briefly, but unequivocally, show Jesus in two or three places in each of the books that make up the Pentateuch; the first five books of the Bible. This booklet is not intended to be comprehensive but, rather, it is intended to provide some guidance for further study of Jesus in the Old Testament.

If you want to understand who Christ is, you have to begin by understanding what Jesus meant when he said in Luke 24:27, "And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself" (NIV). In FINDING JESUS IN THE EXODUS, biblical scholar Nicholas Perrin shows that the Bible's story of the Exodus from beginning to end is filled with prophetic foretellings of the person and work of Christ: Moses as a great deliver and prophet The voice in the burning bush The Passover Lamb of God The unleavened bread The rock and pillar of cloud The red sea crossing The manna from heaven You will see all of these and more as examples of Christ in the story of the Exodus.

Finding Christ In The Old Testament Searching Out How The Early Church Supported The Doctrines Of Christ From Only The Old Testament

So the modern believer may be encouraged to search out Jesus not only in the New Testament but also in the Old. The early church, even though they had only the Old Testament, did not lack in Scriptural backing when they preached and taught about Jesus. The modern church should be as well armed having both the Old and New Testament at its disposal.

The center of the Bible is the living Messiah. Throughout its pages God, who inspired it, bears witness to the Person who unites all the strands of history, prophecy, poetry, symbolism, stories and even the names of God themselves, to bear witnessMessiah and his work of Salvation in the Earth. Finding Messiah in the very Jewish New Testament presents no difficulty, but finding Messiah in the Old Testament holds a greater challenge, but it doesn't have to be a challenge at all! It's important to see that Jesus himself read his Old Testament in this way. When he spoke to the two men on the road to Emmaus, we learn that "beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures" (Luke 24:27). And when he spoke to the Jerusalem Pharisees he boldly proclaimed, Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. John 5:45-46 But how exactly do we find Jesus in our Old Testament? He is not named there is he? (actually he is), so how can we do it? This book is your answer!

Discover the person and work of Jesus—in the Old Testament. When we want to see who Jesus was and why he came, we tend to turn to the New Testament accounts of his birth in Bethlehem, his sermon on the hillside and his death on a cross. Yet we discover on the road to Emmaus that Jesus’ way of explaining who he was and why he came was to work his way through the Old Testament—through Genesis and Exodus, Psalms and Proverbs, Isaiah and Jeremiah. In Seeing Jesus, Nancy Guthrie takes us through 60 selected Old Testament readings to see how they reveal Jesus in their promises and prophesies, sacrifices and shadows. Your eyes will be opened to the epic scope of the Bible’s story like never before, as you see what God’s plan for His people has been all along.

Finding Christ In The Old Testament Through The Aramaic Memra Shekinah And Yeqara Of The Targums

This dissertation seeks to find Christ in the Old Testament by examining the targumic passages in which Memra, Shekinah, or Yeqara occur as God's agent or manifestation. Chapter 1 demonstrates that scholars view the Memra, Shekinah, and Yeqara as agents for God or manifestations of God even though many scholars reject the notion of Christological implications found in the New Testament appropriation of these terms and concepts. Chapter 2 discusses the close connection between the targumic Memra, Shekinah, and Yeqara and the New Testament by citing clear instances where the New Testament authors appropriated targumic terms and concepts to speak of Jesus. By using targumic terms and concepts, the New Testament authors provided an exegetical method for finding Christ in the Old Testament through Targum. Chapter 3 examines the occurrences of Memra, presenting examples of passages that certainly refer to Christ, do not refer to Christ, and probably refer to Christ. In this chapter, the Memra refers to Christ or probably refers to Christ when the Memra functions as God's agent, carrying out God's work in the world. Chapter 4 investigates the occurrences of Shekinah and Yeqara, but under the influence of the New Testament, nearly all of the occurrences of Shekinah, and most occurrences of Yeqara refer to Jesus. Shekinah and Yeqara are delineated into categories of occurrences that refer to God's manifestation and God's manifestation with agency. Even though most occurrences of Shekinah and Yeqara refer to Christ, some occurrences of Yeqara are a literal translation of the Hebrew and do not refer to Jesus. Chapter 5 concludes the dissertation by tying several themes together to show the consistency and validity of finding Christ in the Old Testament through Aramaic terms and concepts. This dissertation argues that when the Memra, Shekinah, or Yeqara appear as God's agent(s) or as manifestations of God, one may find Christ in those Old Testament passages. One may find Christ in these passages because the New Testament authors present Jesus as the premier agent and manifestation of God using targumic terms and concepts.

Lord Jesus Christ

Author : Larry W. Hurtado
ISBN : 0802860702
Genre : Religion
File Size : 29.21 MB
Format : PDF, Docs

This outstanding book provides an in-depth historical study of the place of Jesus in the religious life, beliefs, and worship of Christians from the beginnings of the Christian movement down to the late second century. "Lord Jesus Christ" is a monumental work on earliest Christian devotion to Jesus, sure to replace Wilhelm Bousset's "Kyrios Christos" (1913) as the standard work on the subject. Larry Hurtado, widely respected for his previous contributions to the study of the New Testament and Christian origins, offers the best view to date of how the first Christians saw and reverenced Jesus as divine. In assembling this compelling picture, Hurtado draws on a wide body of ancient sources, from Scripture and the writings of such figures as Ignatius of Antioch and Justin to apocryphal texts such as the "Gospel of Thomas" and the "Gospel of Truth." Hurtado considers such themes as early beliefs about Jesus' divine status and significance, but he also explores telling devotional practices of the time, including prayer and worship, the use of Jesus' name in exorcism, baptism and healing, ritual invocation of Jesus as Lord, martyrdom, and lesser-known phenomena such as prayer postures and the curious scribal practice known today as the "nomina sacra." The revealing portrait that emerges from Hurtado's comprehensive study yields definitive answers to questions like these: How important was this formative period to later Christian tradition? When did the divinization of Jesus first occur? Was early Christianity influenced by neighboring religions? How did the idea of Jesus' divinity change old views of God? And why did the powerful dynamics of early beliefs and practices encouragepeople to make the costly move of becoming a Christian? Boasting an unprecedented breadth and depth of coverage -- the book speaks authoritatively on everything from early Christian history to themes in biblical studies to New Testament Christology -- Hurtado's "Lord Jesus Christ" is at once significant enough that a wide range of scholars will want to read it and accessible enough that general readers interested at all in Christian origins will also profit greatly from it.
