Jesus in the Old Testament

Check out this post on The New in the Old and the Old in the New. It is a great look at the typology of the Jesus in the Old Testament. It also hints at the ideas of the Old Testament being found in the New Testament.

We in the Christian church have often misinterpreted Scripture (not intentionally I believe) because we do not understand the Old Testament. The NT writers knew the Old Testament from memory, and much of what they wrote reflect their deep knowledge and understanding of the Old Testament.

Rob Bell is a great example of this. Check this out from Rob Bell at Willowcreek as he applies Jewish history and Old Testament understanding to Jesus.
