Christ in the Old Testament (Raised from the Dead)

Remember that there are more than 300 prophecies in the Old Testament that Christ fulfilled in the new Testament. I give you only the highlights here.

Christ will be raised from the dead.

“Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll, or engraved in rock forever! I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes— How my heart yearns within me!” (Job 19:23–27)

Job’s words were indeed recorded. See here.

“Truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. “A time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned” (See John 5:24–29).

In spite of the good ending, Christ endured much on our behalf. 

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me? So far from my cries of anguish?” (Psalm 22:1)

Can you feel the pain and anguish in Christ’s call?

“About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ (which means ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’)” (Matthew 27:46).

Prayer- Oh God, Jesus endured separation from you on our behalf. Thank you, Father. Amen.
