MAJ-1 - Jesus In The Old Testament
“And the angel said to Mary, ‘And you shall call his name Jesus for He will save His people from their sins,’” Matthew 1:21.
Welcome to our series of lessons entitled: “More About Jesus.” When people think about the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we often think about Him in terms of the New Testament. All of us want to shape our lives to learn more about Jesus and know more about His life. We want to follow in His footsteps, 1 Peter 2:21.
But as we initially think about learning more about Jesus, we want to realize that Jesus also is an amazing figure who plays a big part in the Old Testament scheme of redemption, in both planning and prophecy.
As we think about Jesus in the Old Testament, it's not really an idea that we often associate with Christ. When people think about studying about Christ, we often turn to the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. And naturally, they tell us about the birth, the life, the death, and resurrection of Christ.
