In the Bible, God often paints spiritual concepts with the bright colors of illustration: "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). But it is not just Bible teaching that can be metaphoric; Bible events can be, too. God often worked out Bible history, real events, objects, and people to show portraits of the greatest of all subjects his beloved Son. This book examines eight such Old Testament pictures and demonstrates how they point us forward to Jesus Christ, the coming King.
