Jesus in the Old Testament

Don't miss the wonderful list that shows how God was "whispering" about Jesus in every Old Testament book! #Jesus #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions

"On the Emmaus  Road, Jesus used the Old Testament to explain Who He was...Imagine the greatest Teacher explaining the greatest themes from the greatest Book."  Warren Weirsbe(1)

After His resurrection, Jesus met two disciples walking to a village called Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35). They didn't recognize Jesus, but "beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself" (Luke 24:27).

Christ's redemption was part of God's plan from the beginning (Genesis 3:15). When we recognize this important truth, it enhances our understanding and appreciation of both Old and New Testaments.
