Jesus in the Old Testament

Jesus is the main point of the Old Testament. In Matthew 5:17 Jesus says he did not come to abolish the Law or the Prophets, but rather he came to fulfill them! Jesus understood that every text ultimately pointed to him. I highlighted this point in my sermon concerning this text at Northbrook Church. Click HERE to view the video.

Jesus took the time to walk with two men on the road after his resurrection. In Luke 24:27 he opened up the Old Testament and showed them how it all pointed to him. We should be doing the same. As we interpret the Old Testament we need to intentionally shift to Jesus in our understanding of the text.

Here are some links to hone your skill at interpreting the Old Testament in a Christ-Centered way.
