A New York Times Bestseller! In Finding Jesus in the Old Testament, David Limbaugh unlocks the mysteries of the Old Testament and reveals hints of Jesus Christ's arrival through all thirty-nine Old Testament books. The key to the secrets of the Old Testament, Limbaugh argues, is the crucial New Testament encounter between the risen Jesus and two travelers on the road to Emmaus. With that key, and with Limbaugh as a deft guide, readers of Finding Jesus in the Old Testament will come to a startling new understanding of the Old Testament as a clear and powerful heralding of Jesus Christ's arrival. Limbaugh takes readers on a revealing journey from Genesis through Malachi, demonstrating that a consistent message courses through every one of the Old Testament's thirty-nine books: the power, wonder, and everlasting love of Jesus Christ. Previously published under the title The Emmaus Code.

Although not in every line and perhaps not on every page, the message of Christ overshadows the entire Old Testament. Finding Christ is the key that both 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.

Jesus did not come from nowhere! He was long awaited by a people who were educated…to expect God's presence in the messiness of their own history.—From the Introduction Not only was Jesus a Jew, his coming was foreshadowed in stories from Genesis to the prophets. Father Richard Veras invites us to enter a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the doors of familiar and not-so-familiar incidents in the Old Testament. Ever wonder, for example, why God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? Even more, why Abraham was willing to do it? Puzzled as to why there are two creation accounts in Genesis? What's the problem with being a Samaritan? And what does any of this have to do with Jesus and our life in him? The author explores these and other issues with one goal in mind: to "aid the reader to come to a deeper certainty about Jesus Christ." "This book makes the Word of God accessible to the young and, in fact, to anyone who wishes to look at the Bible with the eyes of a faith in touch with the grace of the Jewish people. The insights are quite valuable, but the real attractiveness of the book is the faith that it inspires through a simple, straightforward and imaginative reading of the Sacred Text." —Father Francis Martin, John Paul II Cultural Center, Washington, D.C.

The messianic prophecies in the Old Testament uniquely identify Jesus as the Messiah. The writings of the prophets precisely detail what Jesus would do, what He would say, where He would go, and who He would meet. The miracles that Jesus would accomplish were specified. His sayings were predetermined. Important dates and geographic locations were pinpointed. Friends and foes were identified and named. The writings of the prophets foretold the events in Jesus' life centuries before they occurred. The fulfillment of the messianic prophecies prove the existence of God and a predetermined plan for human events.

So the modern believer may be encouraged to search out Jesus not only in the New Testament but also in the Old. The early church, even though they had only the Old Testament, did not lack in Scriptural backing when they preached and taught about Jesus. The modern church should be as well armed having both the Old and New Testament at its disposal.

The language of 'christophanies' is used technically by scholars to refer to appearances of the incarnate Son of God after his resurrection, as narrated in the New Testament Gospels and Acts. At a more popular level, though, the term is increasingly applied to alleged appearances of the pre-incarnate Son in the Old Testament. That Jesus appeared to - and was even recognized by - the likes of Abraham and Moses is usually argued from several scriptural trajectories. The New Testament suggests that God the Father is invisible, inviting us to ask who conducted the Old Testament appearances; the mysterious Angel of the Lord has often been interpreted as a manifestation of the divine Son; and several New Testament passages imply Old Testament appearances of and encounters with Jesus. It seems obvious, indeed orthodox, to affirm that Jesus has always been at work in communicating with and saving his world. However, Andrew Malone argues that, while Christ-centred readings of the Old Testament abound, christophanies prove to be a flimsy foundation on which to build. Despite apparent success, any scholarship commending the idea does not withstand close scrutiny. Malone carefully sifts the evidence to show that the popular arguments should be abandoned, and that the pursuit of Old Testament christophanies ultimately threatens to undermine the very values it promotes. He concludes that it better honours the Trinity and the text of Scripture to allow that the Father and the Spirit, as well as the Son, were themselves involved in Old Testament appearances.

The center of the Bible is the living Messiah. Throughout its pages God, who inspired it, bears witness to the Person who unites all the strands of history, prophecy, poetry, symbolism, stories and even the names of God themselves, to bear witnessMessiah and his work of Salvation in the Earth. Finding Messiah in the very Jewish New Testament presents no difficulty, but finding Messiah in the Old Testament holds a greater challenge, but it doesn't have to be a challenge at all! It's important to see that Jesus himself read his Old Testament in this way. When he spoke to the two men on the road to Emmaus, we learn that "beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures" (Luke 24:27). And when he spoke to the Jerusalem Pharisees he boldly proclaimed, Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. John 5:45-46 But how exactly do we find Jesus in our Old Testament? He is not named there is he? (actually he is), so how can we do it? This book is your answer!
