Jesus regularly quoted from Scripture. In the New Testament, He instructs His followers that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses, by the Prophets and in the Psalms concerning Himself. In the Gospel of Matthew (23:35), Jesus refers to the history of God's Word being rejected from Abel to Zechariah, spanning the pages of the Old Testament from Genesis to 2 Chronicles.
What a motivation to read the words of the Old Testament and to understand all that it teaches! It contains the words that Jesus Himself knew and taught!
In a concise, yet tremendously insightful handbook, Bible theologian Alec Motyer provides a comprehensive overview of the important take-aways from the Old Testament. He masterfully illustrates where the Old Testament points forward and where the New Testament points backward, revealing the single unified story the Bible tells -- the story of salvation in Christ alone.
