If we are honest the Old Testament scares us. There are images and stories that make us scratch our head. It prompts us at times to ask questions like “How could God ask Abraham to kill his only son?” The Old Testament makes up over half of our Bible. Therefore it is important that we understand what it is about. Like all of scripture the Old Testament is about Jesus.
David Murray has written a most helpful book, Jesus on Every Page. He argues that the Old Testament is about Jesus and gives ten helpful ways to seek and find Christ in the Old Testament. I do not want to review the whole book but I would like to do short posts on the ten tips he gives.
