“O Foolish Men and Slow of Heart to Believe….” A Forum on Christ in the Old Testament

Christ in the OT

Christ in the OT

Jesus said: “These things are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” (Luke 24:44)

When he was walking with the two disciples who were confused about the resurrection He said: “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory? And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:25-27)

But, how is this worked out practically in our reading and preaching of the Old Testament? To answer that question, let me encourage you to listen to a forum held recently at Southern Seminary on Christ in the Old Testament. One of the guests is my good friend and former co-pastor Jim Hamilton. I think Jim articulates his thesis well, even in a short amount of time: The Old Testament is a Messianic document, written from a Messianic perspective in order to sustain a Messianic hope. It even sounds like he’s working on a rap about Christ in the Old Testament…we are all waiting with great anticipation for that one!!

I commend the audio of the forum to you, that God might continue to enlighten us to the beauty of His Son in the Old Testament.

Listen to the Audio Here.
