101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures
Jesus on Every Page of the Old Testament? "But Jesus didn't come along until the New Testament," someone says, "What's He doing in the Old?" In his new book, 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures, author Bob Beasley, a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary, seeks to answer that question in many more than 101 ways. In fact, even though the Old Testament -- the Hebrew Scriptures -- was written 2,000 to 500 years prior to Jesus' earthly ministry, some say the Lord may be found on its every page. Just as a great novel or movie will provide early warnings of things to come later on in the book or screen, the Old Testament is full of types, foreshadowings, specific prophesies, mighty works, and pre-incarnate appearances of the Savior. He is prefigured by men like Adam, Noah, Joseph, Moses, and David. Jesus is foreshadowed by furniture (yes, furniture), rocks, food, a snake, doorways, trees, colors, animals--in many, many ways. He appears as smoke and fire and as the mysterious Angel of the Lord. All of this hundreds of years before born to Mary in Bethlehem. On the road to Emmaus following His resurrection, Jesus spoke with some of His followers. Luke tells us; And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the [Hebrew] Scriptures concerning himself (Luke 24:27). In a compact and readable 101 chapters surveying Genesis to Malachi, Beasley merely scratches the surface of the wonderful truths of Jesus in the Old Testament, sure to deepen anyone's understanding of and love for the entire Bible. This is a book for everyone--new Christians as well as old, and also for those seeking answers as to whether of not the Bible is trustworthy. The impact of hundreds of foreshadowings of Jesus is truly powerful. 101 Portraits will open the Scriptures for you as never before.
