Jesus in the Old Testament

On the Emmaus Road, Christian Unite Clip Art 
On the Emmaus  Road, Jesus used the Old Testament to explain Who He was...“That was some Bible conference, and I wish I could have been there! Imagine the greatest Teacher explaining the greatest themes from the greatest Book...Perhaps Jesus started at Genesis 3:15, the first promise of the Redeemer, and traced that promise through the Scriptures. He may have lingered at Genesis 22, which tells of Abraham placing his only beloved son on the altar. Surely He touched on Passover, the levitical sacrifices, the tabernacle ceremonies, the Day of Atonement, the serpent in the wilderness, the Suffering Servant in Isaiah 53, and the prophetic messages of Psalms 22 and 69. The key to understanding the Bible is to see Jesus Christ on every page.” (1)  Warren Weirsbe

As you read through the Bible, remember that you are reading the greatest story ever written—the story of life—the story of Jesus!  WOW!
