Book Description

Discover Jesus Throughout the Old Testament!

The son trudges uphill, bearing wood for his own sacrifice; his father has decided to give him up to death. What biblical event does this bring to mind? Is it Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22, or ChristÆs passion in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? The kinship between these two stories is deeper than mere coincidence. Christ is present in the story of Abraham and Isaac. In fact, he is present on every page of the Old Testament.

Christians seem to have forgotten that the Old Testament has everything to do with Jesus Christ. In Jesus on Every Page, David Murray guides the reader down his own Road to Emmaus, describing how the Scriptures were opened to him, revealing Jesus from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. Dr. MurrayÆs ten simple ways to seek and find Christ in the Old Testament unveil the face of Christ in the creation, the law, the psalms, the prophets, and the proverbs.

Recognizing Jesus in the full breadth of Scripture is important for every Christian. Whether you are preaching Jesus through Old Testament readings or just beginning to discover the reality of Christ in the Old Testament, Jesus on Every Page provides an accessible guide to the increasingly popular subject of Jesus in the Old Testament books. Have your own Road to Emmaus experience and know the Old Testament for what it truly is: full of Jesus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take the Road to Emmaus 21 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Every now and then you read a book that makes you go "Wow!" David Murray's Jesus on Every Page is a book that would fit into this category. I was looking forward to reading it, and having read it, it does not disappoint.

It is a book of two halves. The first half tells David's own `Road to Emmaus' story of how he came to discover that the Old Testament was all about Christ. This part of the book really draws you in with a mix of personal narrative and clear Bible teaching.

The second half of the book provides 10 ways of finding Jesus in the Old Testament: Christ's Planet, People, Presence, Precepts, Past, Prophets, Pictures, Promises, Proverbs and Poets. Time and time again these chapters made me say to myself "Why didn't I see that before?"

Each chapter of this book was a delight to read, however the one that really blew me away, was Christ's Planet, where Murray shows how we can discover Jesus in creation, giving 11 ways (yes, eleven ways!) we see Christ in Genesis 1 and 2. If the rest of the book weren't so good, I'd say it's worth buying just for the chapter, but actually it's worth buying for every chapter.

I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. Both for pastors to help them preach Christ from Old Testament passages, and also for the whole congregation to help them to know Christ better from these 39 books of the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read 20 Aug. 2013
Occasionally before even finishing a book I start thinking about how to persuade everyone I know to read it. This is one of those books.

Murray seeks to tackle the problem that 'Christians seem to have forgotten that the Old Testament has everything to do with Jesus Christ'. Statistics show OT preaching is rare, and even when it is done, it's done badly. When people read the OT themselves, they're far from seeing Jesus on every page.

Murray himself took a long time to see the Old Testament in this way. In the first section of the book he retraces the steps of his own journey, focusing especially on how key figures in the New Testament (Jesus, Peter, Paul and John) understood the Bible they preached from.

The second section, which is the bulk of the book, has chapters on 10 different ways to seek and find Christ in the OT, beginning with Creation. All things were created through Christ he reminds us, down to the sheep he created so he could teach sinners about how he is the good Shepherd.

The next nine steps are similarly short but profound. He covers seeing Jesus in Old Testament characters, appearances, law, history and prophets. His chapter on 'Jesus' Pictures' (Old Testament 'types' or 'visual theology') takes Patrick Fairbairn's 700 page classic and reduces it to 10. The chapter on 'Christ's Promises' is a masterly introduction to what is in fact Covenant Theology, but with the usual jargon replaced by terms like 'The Covenant of the Defeated Serpent'. In fact, the book is really a Christ-centred Bible overview.

Murray also challenges popular conceptions of God's people before 1AD. They didn't trust in works righteousness or an earthly king. Neither did they just have some vague hope of a Messiah to come.

By Mark Loughridge VINE VOICE
David Murray has written a really helpful and accessible book, not primarily aimed at preachers, as these books often are, but at non-preachers. He writes openly and honestly, charting his own story of failure to see Jesus in the Old Testament as much as he should have done--even as a preacher. This openness and sense of journeying with him makes the book much more readable than if he had written a textbook on Christ in the Old Testament. It also allows his enthusiasm and delight at seeing Jesus to shine through.

The book falls into two unequal parts. Part 1, the shorter section, contains his own admission of failure, and then answers the question--What right have we to see Jesus throughout the Old Testament. Instead of being content with quoting a single reference such as Luke 24:44, he looks at the testimony of four key New Testament figures--Jesus, Peter, Paul and John--and unpacks both the evidence and objections.

Section 2 is much longer and looks at how to see Jesus in 10 different aspects of the Old Testament--the Creation, the People, the Angel of The Lord, in the Law, in History, in the Prophets, in the Types, in the Covenants, in Proverbs, and in the Poetic books.

Throughout Murray gives numerous helpful, and almost annoyingly alliterative (!), principles in each section to enable you to see Christ in a variety of ways in each genre. He provides safeguards so that you don't fall into the dangers of turning insignificant details into unfounded illustrations of Christ's work, as many have done.

One of my favourite parts of the book was the chapter on Creation--Christ's Planet--and the way Murray draws out the fact that the earth is not just the arena for redemption, but that everything was created with redemption in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience Jesus in the Old Testament 21 Aug. 2013
In September 2012, Harvard historian Karen King unveiled her discovery to an unsuspecting world: she had uncovered a credit card sized fragment of a papyrus manuscript, which she named The Gospel of Jesus' Wife. It seems like every few years a new document is discovered with new information about Jesus and his life. In his wisdom, God gave his people detailed accounts of the life and works of Jesus Christ in the gospels. Another document with information about Jesus' life and ministry, like a new novel in a best selling series, would make excellent supplemental reading material. What if such a document actually existed? As a matter of fact, thirty-eight of them exist and you likely have them nearby.

David Murray is a Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. In Jesus on Every Page, he will become your guide as he presents the reader with ten paths, or ways for experiencing Jesus in the Old Testament.

And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. (Luke 24:27)

In Luke 24 we read the account of two of Jesus' followers on the road to Emmaus. They are downcast with the events of crucifixion and are confused in their understanding of what sort of a Messiah he was. They clearly didn't understand what Jesus was about. As they are walking on the road to Emmaus, Jesus draws alongside and teaches them how all the Old Testament Scriptures revealed him.

The aim of Jesus on Every Page is to help us, like these two followers of Jesus on the road to Emmaus, to clearly see Jesus Christ in all the Old Testament. Furthermore, to see Jesus Christ as at the centre of all Scripture.
