Jesus in the Old Testament?

“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27

The Old Testament, without the Lord Jesus Christ, would be a dead-end road leading to nowhere. And yet, as you take a step back and look at the whole Bible, you see Jesus everywhere.

An artist took the Constitution of the United States, and he painted the letters very carefully and shaded each letter. Once he was done, as you looked at the Constitution of the United States of America, you could read it as the framers intended it to be, but if you stepped back and looked at it, you would see that the artist had so shaded the letters that there was a portrait of George Washington. That’s how we read the Old Testament in relation to Jesus. You’ll find all the laws and ceremonies and practices, but as you step back, there He is: Jesus the Son of God.
