The Bible is about Jesus Christ~“Jesus said to them, ‘How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christhave to suffer these things and then enter His glory?’ And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself” (Luke 24:25-27).
In the book of Job we see Jesus Christ as the Timeless Redeemer or the Ever-living Redeemer.“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth” (Job 19:25).He is also seen as the Dayspring from on high.“Have you [speaking to Job] commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place [as the Creator did]” (Job 38:12).
additional comment:In the book of Isaiah we read about the servant of the Lord—who would suffer greatly while being innocent (Isaiah 52:13-53:12).Meanwhile those who are guilty would look on and blame Him for His own suffering—even saying He was being punished by God for His own sins.The passage goes on to say that this servant would intercede with God on their behalf.Some thought this servant of the Lord to be Job—but in the New Testament it is revealed that it is our Savior Jesus Christ, the Messiah, who is being described (see Acts 8:32-35).
Comment~We have only touched the surface of Christ in the Book of Job. Much more could be said about each of the previous examples.
additional comment: The Book of Job is quoted in the New Testament.“He catches the wise in their own craftiness, and the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them”(Job 5:13).“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness’” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
The Apostle Paul told us the Scriptures present many shadows of things to come but the reality is found in Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:17).
