Christ in the Old Testament
The God of the New Testament is the same as in the Old Testament.
Here are three reasons for this book:
1. The Old Testament was inpired by the Holy Spirit
2. The Holy Spirit came to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ.
3. The same Spirit shows in the New Testament that many verses in the Old Testament are really about our Lord. Some are pictures of Christ, some are prophecies.
In this book the author looks at two of the ways the Holy Spirit presents Christ in the Old Testament - in promises and then in pictures. Dr. Harlow takes us to each of the 39 Old Testament books to show us something about Christ in either pictures or promises or both.
If you read this book carefully and thoughtfully you will be able to give more glory to Christ and you will come to love the Lord Jesus more as well.
