Jesus on Every Page

This is a book that shows how and where Jesus is present in the Old Testament and a book that equips us all to find him and worship him there. David Murray focuses less on the stories and more on the story; less on the heroes and more on the Hero. Not only does this book assure us that Jesus is in the Old Testament and is, in fact, the hero of the Old Testament, it also provides a whole series of methods of discovering and, even better, knowing Jesus in the pages of the Old Testament scriptures.
One of the book’s unique strengths is that it is told biographically. David Murray introduces the subject by tracing his own journey of discovery, as he walked his own road to Emmasus, and not as one who learned it all in a seminary classroom many decades ago. This takes it far out of dry academia and breathes so much life into it.
He focuses on ten ways we can find Jesus in the Old Testament Scriptures and along the way manages to alliterate all ten of the chapter titles:

  1. Christ’s Planet
  2. Christ’s People
  3. Christ’s Presence
  4. Christ’s Precepts
  5. Christ’s Past
  6. Christ’s Prophets
  7. Christ’s Pictures
  8. Christ’s Promises
  9. Christ’s Proverbs
  10. Christ’s Poets
Jesus On Every Page is a book for all of us, an entry-level guide to the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament scriptures. It’s a book you should consider reading.
