Jesus in the Old Testament

In his new book, The Bible Overview, Steve Levy offers a few examples of how the Old Testament is about Jesus:

  • Through Jesus the world is made. (Genesis 1:1-3; John 1:1-3)
  • The gospel of Jesus Christ is preached to Abraham. (Genesis 15:1-4; Galatians 3:8)
  • Jesus is the ‘I Am’ who redeems Israel. (Exodus 3:13-14; John 8:58)
  • Jesus gives the inheritance of the land. (Judges 2:1-4; Hebrews 9:15)
  • Jesus is the Son of David who brings a kingdom that will not end. (Psalm 2:2-7; Luke 1:32-33)
  • Jesus is the servant who explains the exile and brings its end. (Isaiah 42:1-9; Matthew 1:17)
  • The Spirit of Christ testifies to the prophets about Jesus’ suffering and the glories that will follow. (Isaiah 53; 1 Peter 1:11)
