Too often we think of Jesus as a random mixture of Gospel stories topped with whatever fashionable image of him is current. He is cut off from the historical Jewish context of his own day, and from his deep roots in the Hebrew Scriptures. Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament uncovers Jesus' self-understanding as Son of Man and Son of God. Christopher Wright reveals the Jesus who fulfilled the mission that God had given to Israel. This updated and revised edition contains an entirely new chapter on how the Old Testament reveals the divinity of Jesus. Wright also adds questions and exercises to help readers go deeper in the content of the book. Throughout we discover that the more we understand the Old Testament, the closer we come to the heart Jesus. Book jacket.
