    This is something that aggravates me, as well. I love the Old Testament, and I look forward to teaching Jakob about how it relates to Jesus.

    Yes, we have to get it right when teaching our kids. If not, they grow up with a misconception about the Bible, God, and Jesus. I have talked to too many people that seem to believe that Jesus suddenly showed up in the New Testament out of thin air. As adults, this misconception of Jesus hinders our spiritual maturity and I think to a certain extent puts the OT into a bucket of just do’s and don’ts. How much of God do we miss when this happens? That haunts me.

  3. Brad Webster Says:

    I completely agree with this. It continually amazes me how so much of the OT is pointing to Jesus. From the sacrificial, unspotted lamb, to the kindred redeemer in Esther. And so much of the tabernacle set up all points to Jesus. Even the arc of the Covenant with it’s Mercy Seat in the middle. Jesus even said the scriptures (OT in his day) pointed to him.

    I Love how God doesn’t insult our intelligence and actually expects us to sort of “read between the lines” and connect dots to find Him. Imagine that, He actually WANTS us to use our hearts and minds He gave us! ha ha ha.

    Yep for sure. I just can’t believe that that I was taught most of my life that except for prophesy, Jesus didn’t show up until the NT. Grrrrrr…..
