Luke 24:27 He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
Many personal applications could be mentioned— all of which are connected to one overarching theme: every prophecy finds its ultimate fulfillment in Jesus Christ. All the judgments the prophets foretold were poured out on Jesus, who suffered and died in our place. And all the blessings the prophets described apply ultimately to the kingdom that Jesus will bring completely to a renewed creation. Each of the prophets lived in a specific time and place. Each one also announced a message that was timely for the original audience. But it’s important to know that in those same books we can find passages pointing to the good news about Jesus, helping us to grow in our faith and life in him.
Lord, long before you sent Jesus into the world, you sent prophets who spoke about his coming. Use their messages to bring us closer to Jesus, we pray. In his name, Amen.
