Is Jesus in the Old Testament?
Duguid, Iain M. Is Jesus in the Old Testament? (Basics of the Faith) Louisville: P & R Publishing, 2013.
Duguid offers a short introduction to the topic of Christ in the Old Testament. Instead of focusing on specific Old Testament passages which are about Christ or show His presence in the Old Testament, he approaches it from a more overview approach and cites numerous New Testament Scriptures to make his points. Our pastor is currently in the midst of a series which is an overview of every book in the Bible. In each Old Testament book we have covered, he has had a section to show Christ in that particular book and points us to specific passages. I think I prefer our pastor's approach to the topic. This is a good introduction, but a book of 40 pages is just not going to be able to adequately address the topic. This review is based on an electronic galley provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
