"The Old Testament is Jesus predicted; the Gospels are Jesus revealed; Acts is Jesus preached; the Epistles, Jesus explained; and the Revelation, Jesus expected." Without either the Old or New Testaments, the story of Christ and salvation is hopelessly incomplete. Thus, although many think it irrelevant and dull, knowing the Old Testament is essential to understanding the New.
With skill and passion, Alec Motyer explores the unity of the Bible as it is expressed in its central theme - Jesus, the Rock of ages. Motyer uncovers how the Old Testament is the beginning of the story - pointing to and anticipating the coming Messiah. Understandable and reverent, this book goes a long way in helping readers appreciate the drama of redemption.
