I often wondered as I grew up, why the Old Testament was so important. I thought that the New Testament was something to focus on. But I’ve grown to appreciate and see how important Old Testament Scripture actually is. It comes down to this: The entirety of the Old Testament points to Jesus.
Today we’re looking in the Old Testament Book of Job. Here’s some example of how Job pointed to Jesus (Imagine a courtroom):
3) Job 14:17 … Will cover my sins. (Jesus takes our sins upon Himself).
Job’s thoughts, problems, and questions are perfectly answered in the person of Jesus. May He be glorified because of it. And may each of us look to Jesus as well.
