Christ in the Old Testament pamphlet explores the lives of 13 biblical people who "prefigured" the Messiah. Throughout the Old Testament, God provided "saviors" for the people of Israel who would foreshadow the true, eternal Savior yet to come. Understanding stories such as Joseph or Abraham and how they point to Christ helps us trust in God's provision and wisdom in all things. This 14-panel foldout chart examines types, parallels, and illustrations of Jesus throughout the Old Testament, including people such Melchizedek, King David, Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and many others. When viewed through the prism of Christ's life, death and resurrection, these Old Testament characters and their roles in biblical history take on new dimensions.
