He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
– Luke 24:44 (NIV)

How do we view the Old Testament? As an outdated view of God? Jesus challenges us to look at the Old Testament in the light of Him! What would happen if we look at the first part of the Bible as being fulfilled in Christ? Then we come into the adventure of seeing Jesus in the 10 commandments, Jesus as the true tabernacle, Jesus as the true David. To view the Old Testament through the eyes of God’s purpose in Christ makes it come alive with meaning for us today.
