Book Review - Jesus on Every Page
About the Book
Discover Jesus Throughout the Old Testament!
The son trudges uphill, bearing wood for his own sacrifice; his father has decided to give him up to death. What biblical event does this bring to mind? Is it Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22, or Christ’s passion in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? The kinship between these two stories is deeper than mere coincidence. Christ is present in the story of Abraham and Isaac. In fact, he is present on every page of the Old Testament.
Christians seem to have forgotten that the Old Testament has everything to do with Jesus Christ. In Jesus on Every Page, David Murray guides the reader down his own Road to Emmaus, describing how the Scriptures were opened to him, revealing Jesus from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. Dr. Murray’s ten simple ways to seek and find Christ in the Old Testament unveil the face of Christ in the creation, the law, the psalms, the prophets, and the proverbs. Recognizing Jesus in the full breadth of Scripture is important for every Christian. Whether you are preaching Jesus through Old Testament readings or just beginning to discover the reality of Christ in the Old Testament, Jesus on Every Page provides an accessible guide to the increasingly popular subject of Jesus in the Old Testament books. Have your own Road to Emmaus experience and know the Old Testament for what it truly is: full of Jesus.
My Take on the Book
This book was a fascinating read. I have ti say that I knew so little of what was being shared in the book. It was extremely helpful and gave me a new insight to where I could find Jesus in the Old Testament (which is not always where I would look for him). The book is personal and shares the authors' own journey into discovering Jesus in the Old Testament but then opens this up and share the revelations that he had in trying to find Jesus himself in ten steps. The book itself was a good read and I have already found myself reflecting back on a number of the sections so that I could better grasp some of the concepts and I anticipate doing this again and again in the future too.
If you are looking for a book that will open your eyes in new ways to find Jesus, this will definitely be one to place on your reading list!
