Christ in the Old Testament

J. C. Ryle and Others

Publisher Description

This new issue of the Free Grace Broadcaster is “Christ in the Old Testament.” J. C. Ryle opens this profound subject by explaining that the key to Bible knowledge is Jesus Christ. The articles that follow use Christ’s three-fold division of the OT: law, psalms, and prophets. Charles Spurgeon preaches the “first gospel” from the Law in Genesis 3:15, the gospel of the serpent’s doom! Likewise, George Whitefield reveals Christ to us in the account of Abraham’s obedient attempt to sacrifice Isaac. Christ’s sufferings were prophesied throughout the OT, and Jonathan Edwards shows us that in detail. William Plumer explains that we might see Christ where He is not and miss where He is in the Psalms if we interpret Scripture poorly. John Calvin then interprets Psalm 2 well to show us that Christ is the Son of God declared there. Matthew Henry takes us to Christ in the Prophets, beautifully mining Christ from the gold of Isaiah. Charles Simeon also shows from Isaiah that God the Father called and commissioned Christ as His anointed preacher. Is the gospel really in the OT? The law, the psalms, and the prophets overflow with it: James Durham proclaims Christ and His gospel from Isaiah; George Whitefield turns to Jeremiah to draw our hearts to Christ our righteousness; and Richard Sibbes takes the majestic text of Malachi that shines with the glory of Christ the Sun of Righteousness. We close with Charles Spurgeon telling us that on the road to Emmaus, Jesus was the best of tutors, teaching from the best of books, and explaining the best of subjects—His own Person and work.
