Jesus In the Old Testament 1
There is a growing hostility throughout the world where Christian schools are being attacked, Church’s being restricted on what they are allowed to preach. Simply put, the world is attacking anything that makes people feel shame or guilt. Christians must start getting urgent in standing for orthodox faith. How do we do this? How can we reinforce the Biblical understanding and comprehension of our kids? Is teaching them in understanding the covenants, and why we do communion really important? Most importantly where is rest and hope for the Christian found? It can be found in the Old Testament; pointing to the New Testament!

This is the process where we find in the Old Testament that which foreshadows Jesus in the New Testament. While very beneficial, we must be certain we do not wrongly use typology. There can be a good intentioned lure to place these foreshadows of Jesus where they are not intended to be. With the danger of misusing it; why is typology still so important? Referenced verses: Hebrews 4, 1 Corinthians 15:23, John 7:37-38.
