Well, Rose Publishing has done it again. I have used Rose’s material for years and I am never disappointed. This latest pamphlet [Christ in the Old Testament
] (provided by Rose free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review) is no exception. This is a valuable quick reference pamphlet on the types, shadows and foreshadows of our great God and savior Jesus Christ found throughout the Old Testament. This particular pamphlet focuses on the 13 people in the Old Testament who’s attributes and actions point to Christ either in a parallel way or by of contrast. The Old Testament characters include:
Each of these characters, their stories, what they did, what they said and what God did to and through them is laid out and connected to the scripture’s ultimate character, Jesus Christ. The parallels are astounding and Rose does a great job presenting them in an easy to read format. If you have never studied the types of Christ, I would highly recommend this small pamphlet to help you get started and whet your appetite. You will want to pick up some further resources after you’ve looked through these few examples and you will be encouraged that the entire Word of God truly speaks, on virtually every page, of God's Son who became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
