At the cinema, you get trailers of forthcoming films, a quick taste of their most exciting parts.
Although Jesus is only born at the beginning of the New Testament of the Bible, there are many ‘trailers’ of Jesus in the Old Testament. Jesus himself said that the Old Testament spoke about Him. In many ways, all of the Bible is about Jesus.
In each of our five readings this week, we’ll consider an Old Testament ‘type’ of Jesus that is specifically referenced in the New Testament. Each of these ‘types’ gives us a unique picture of the Saviour who would appear hundreds of years later.
