Beginning at Moses: A Guide to Finding Christ in the Old Testament


Although not on every line and perhaps not on every page, the message of Christ overshadows the entire Old Testament. Finding Christ is the key that unlocks and locks in the message of the whole Word of God. Jesus Christ is God’s final, perfect, incomparable Word.

Beginning at Moses seeks to follow the example of Christ himself who, “beginning at Moses and all the prophets,” expounded from all the Scripture the things concerning himself.
