Finding Treasure: Christ in the Old Testament
The Old Testament is like that ‘old-gold common’. If you didn’t know what a rabbit looked like, you could be looking right at them, but not realising they were rabbits. It’s like that with the Old Testament: once the New Testament has introduced us to who Jesus Christ is and what he has done – when we read the Old Testament we can see Jesus Christ ‘most everywhere’ there.
And if we think about that, we can only say ‘Of course!’ Of course the Lord Jesus Christ is in the Old Testament! Indeed, it would be surprising if he was not there.
