To understand the Old Testament themes that were fulfilled in Jesus, we need to understand Old Testament thought. F.F. Bruce reveals the context of the New Testament writers’ understanding of the Old Testament by focusing on seven Old Testament themes—the rule of God over all creation, the salvation of God, the victory of God, the people of God, the son of David, the servant messiah, and the shepherd king. “These and other themes,” he says, “are fulfilled in Jesus.”
This short book is jam packed with insight. It serves as a valuable guide to the complexities of messianic prophecy and opens the enormity of Old Testament proclamation about the Messiah.
