Jesus Was... , 4

~ Jesus Christ Was Witnessed by The Scriptures (Old Testament) ~

 

Passage  ~  “But I have a greater witness than John’s; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish—the very works that I do—bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me.  And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me.  You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.  But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.  You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.  But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life” (John 5:36-40).

 

 

Comment  ~  Jesus Christ is found throughout the Old Testament in metaphors, shadows, symbols, and types.  Certainly He is clearly seen in the Tabernacle and the Feasts of Israel. 

 

 

Additional Scripture  ~  “...We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.”  Verse 5 explains how both the high priests of the earthly tabernacle and the tabernacle itself were but shadows of the heavenly High Priest and tabernacle.  They “... serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, see, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount” (Hebrews 8:1-2).    

 

 

For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect” (Hebrews 10:1).  

 

 

 

Referring to how the tabernacle and the things in it under the law are to be purified with the blood of calves and goats, Hebrews 9:23-24 says, “It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.  For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us ....”  

 

 

There are many types or symbols in the Old Testament that have remarkable similarities to Jesus Christ and the events of His life.  These show us that the birth, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ were all laid out in a divine plan long before the events recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John took place.  Among these types and shadows are: (1) the brazen serpent, (2) Isaac, (3) Joseph, son of Isaac, (4) Jonah, (5) the scapegoat, (6) the sacrificial, Passover lamb, and (7) the rock, and (8) the veil of the temple.

 

the key question:  “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15).  This is the most important question you will ever answer.  If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
