In John 5:37-46, Jesus made an incredible claim:
And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen, and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent. You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from people. But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.
The Old Testament “Scriptures” as a whole, through promises, symbols and pictures of salvation, look forward to the actual accomplishment of salvation that took place once-for-all in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This sermon establishes that point, and investigates 16 bits and pieces of the Old Testament that form a glorious shadow of the One who was to come.
