Game-Changer for Bible Reading
Luke 24 is a game-changer.
It was an unsuspecting walk from Jerusalem. Jesus, unrecognized by two of his disciples, started up a conversation, “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:27).
Jesus made himself plain in the Scriptures. Whatever this means, it certainly demands that we never look at the Old Testament again apart from how it stands in relation to him. Reading the Hebrew Scriptures as if Jesus didn’t exist just isn’t an option.
But how exactly? How does the Old Testament point to Jesus? In this short video, Bryan Chapell tackles this crucial question for preaching and teaching, as well as everyday Bible reading, explaining that it’s essential to look for not how every text references Jesus, but how “every text reveals the grace of God that culminates in Jesus.”
