A Concise Guide to Finding Jesus in the Old Testament

Can we see Jesus in the first 39 books of Scripture? While Christians believe the entire Bible points to Jesus as the Messiah, many have trouble identifying him in the earliest books because he’s never mentioned by name.
In this addition to the Church Questions series, David King guides curious readers on a journey to discover Jesus in all of Scripture. The booklet begins by examining Jesus’s own understanding of how the Old Testament witnesses to him. Next, readers learn 6 ways the Old Testament points to Jesus, including promises of redemption, how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament law and wisdom, and Old Testament types of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. Finally, King explains why it matters to believers and the church today that Jesus is understood as the fulfillment of the Old Testament.
