The New Testament Development Of Old Testament Themes: by- F.F. Bruce
Seven Old Testament Themes Perfectly Fulfilled In Jesus Christ
To understand the Old Testament themes that were fulfilled in Jesus, we need to understand Old Testament thought. F.F. Bruce reveals the context of the New Testament writers’ understanding of the Old Testament by focusing on seven Old Testament themes–the rule of God over all creation, the salvation of God, the victory of God, the people of God, the son of David, the servant messiah, and the sheperd king. These and other themes, he says, are fulfilled in Jesus. Bruce’s work guides us through the complexities of messianic prophecy, says Daniel Wright of Concordia University. It serves as a condensed and valuable guide to the enormity of Old Testament proclamation about the Messiah.
