For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. John 5:46
Moses lived two thousand years before Jesus, yet our Lord insisted that He Himself—Jesus of Nazareth—was the subject of Moses’ writings in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. That’s quite a claim, but Jesus was actually understating the truth. Not only did Moses write about Him, but so did the psalmists, the prophets, and all the other writers of the Old Testament. The Hebrew Scriptures had only one ultimate aim—to introduce the Messiah to the world. They described Him, predicted Him, explained Him, anticipated Him, and commended Him.
Some people never have inward flutters about their faith; they are so convinced the Bible is true that doubt doesn’t rattle them. But other Christians have occasional moments when they say, “Is this really true? Is Christianity true?” After all, the secular world attacks the Christian faith every day.
The fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy about Jesus reassures our faith. Jesus is on every page, and He Himself is the fulfillment of prophecies made hundreds of years before His birth. The Old Testament gives us a firm foundation for faith.
Jesus stepped into the portrait drawn for Him in advance like a living man stepping into a pencil drawing. David Jeremiah
