Chapell Now comes David Murray s Jesus on Every Page a bang on target, concise summary of this urgently needed, hermeneutical adjustment Derek W H Thomas, Professor of Systematic Theology, RTS Atlanta, Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SCThere could scarcely be a worthy pursuit than seeking to learn of Jesus in the pages of ScriptureIt would be difficult indeed to find a accessible, concise, practically helpful, warm hearted guide than David Murray s Jesus On Every Page Fred G Zaspel, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, PA, Calvary Baptist Seminary, Lansdale, PACertainly one of the most helpful and most needed new books that I have seen for a long whileThis book is than a devotional read It leads us to understand accurately why Jesus could say of the scriptures, they testify of me What could be important Iain H Murray, Pastor, Author, and Editorial Director of the Banner of Truth PublishersHis aim throughout is to remind New Testament Christians that they are whole Bible believers, and to give them a key to reading the Old Testament biblically The key to his own book is simple enough it is that the gospel interprets the Old Testament Dr Iain D Campbell, Author, Adjunct Professor at Westminster Seminary, and Pastor of Point Free Church of Scotland. We know that Jesus is the central character of the New Testament and His presence shines brightly after Bethlehem What if, however, He s also the central character of the Old Testament This is the conceptual soil from which this book grows It provides a stirring look at Jesus, as He really is, the towering figure of all history.Resources showing how to preach Christ from the Old Testament are quite the rage nowadays, and when I hear trendy theological ideas that are quite the rage, I tend t We know that Jesus is the central character of the New Testament and His presence shines brightly after Bethlehem What if, however, He s also the central character of the Old Testament This is the conceptual soil from which this book grows It provides a stirring look at Jesus, as He really is, the towering figure of all history.Resources showing how to preach Christ from the Old Testament are quite the rage nowadays, and when I hear trendy theological ideas that are quite the rage, I tend to instinctively dig in my heels and resist them However I believe the contemporary church does need a renewed sense of the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament.Murray s book is rather unique in its approach It s basic and personal, even a bit autobiographical It s all about finding Jesus in the Old Testament, not just some potential Messiah figure.The journey begins on the road to Emmaus, where Jesus delivers a sermon based on a big text Moses, all the Prophets, and all the Scriptures Murray provides autobiographical details on how he found Jesus in the Old Testament and he show sus the difference it made In His search, he found that Jesus wasn t just here and there in the Old Testament He was everywhere This discovery came not as a mere academic nuance, but a real, living, passionate reality that shines in the way Murray writes.Murray unravels his discovery in a orderly and systematic, though not at all dry, way He writes in an easy and light way and he s very careful to present the information in bite sized pieces He s a great communicator.Murray s examination of the different types of prophesy fulfillment in regard to the Messiah is delightful I liked his discussion of how to find Jesus in creation and in the law it was compelling and inspiring His coverage of the Psalms was fantastic I must admit as he proceeded to the Song of Solomon, so much interpretative baggage abounds with that book, and yet I found Murray handle it well and actually gave some surprising advice there I also think Murray s discussion of Christ in the moral law alone is worth the price of the book.I ve found that throughout the book, Murray s approach strikes a delicate balance, neither diminishing the importance, relevance and power of Old Testament examples on the one hand, nor devolving into a simplistic moralization of them on the other He very patiently walks the reader through the nity gritty of analyzing and interpreting the Old Testament There are a lot of nice little details about Murray s approach, such as the way he uses alliteration in his writing.In my mind, the weakest part of the book was his look at the Pauline teaching on the Old Testament It wasn t nearly as focused or well targeted as the rest of the book It became wrapped up in dealing with specific objections, rather than presenting a positive analysis of Paul s teaching It certainly bogged things down I was left wishing it waslike his presentation of Peter s teaching While Murray was covering some important points and I enjoyed the information he presented therein, such a prolonged discussion of and response to objections at that point may have been better placed in a footnote or a longer tome which expands on the subject.This is a great book and I suggest picking it up Don t forget to read the short postscript and work your way through the extensive study questions, they are great I came away from it not only with a deepened appreciation of Jesus Christ s presence in the Old Testament, but also a heightened sense of the wonderful riches of His humanity and divinity The Christian puts his or her faith not in a humanized God or a deified man, but a true God man , as Warfield once put it Murray has done a wonderful job of conveying his passion for this marvelous Jesus in a winsome and eloquent way Wow, where to startJesus on Every Page should be required reading for every Christian within a few year s of their conversion to Christ Honestly, if I had been able to grasp early on in my Christian walk the things that David Murray shows in his book about Christ being found throughout the Bible, then it would have saved me from a ton of spiritual headaches I, in my spiritual immaturity, spent countless hours trying to reconcile the Old Testament with the New Testament and can honestly say Wow, where to startJesus on Every Page should be required reading for every Christian within a few year s of their conversion to Christ Honestly, if I had been able to grasp early on in my Christian walk the things that David Murray shows in his book about Christ being found throughout the Bible, then it would have saved me from a ton of spiritual headaches I, in my spiritual immaturity, spent countless hours trying to reconcile the Old Testament with the New Testament and can honestly say that I was way off the markthan I was right I feel like some of the most basic and fundamental questions that newborn babes in Christ ask and need to know the biblical answer to are 1 What role does the Old Testament play in the life of the gentile New Testament believer 2 When Christ said that He did not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it, how does that work itself out in the lives of NT believers 3 If we are still required to abide by the moral law i.e Ten Commandments , then why aren t we required to live by the ceremonial and civil law given to the Israelites as well 4 Were OT saints saved in the exact same way that NT saints are If not, how were they savedby works If salvation is the same throughout the Bible and it is , then how thorough were OT saints understanding of the Messiah David Murray does an excellent job of providing answers to all of the questions above, and giving Scripture references to back up all his assertions I loved the fact that Murray admitted all of his shortcomings and failures along the way as he tried to seek the mind of the Lord on seeking and finding Christ in the Old Testament It is such a relief to read a book where the author is not trying to cast himself in a spiritual light, but isconcerned with making much of Christ I am hoping and praying along with David that this book will encourage Pastors everywhere to get back to preaching the Old Testament and showing their congregations that the Old Testament is not something to be avoided b c of all the genealogies, rules, etc Rather, the Old Testament was written to declare the character of our God and to incrementally reveal the beauty and majesty of a Messiah whose active and passive obedience to His Father led to our redemption And, when our Pastors start to get passionate about discovering the character and attributes of our God and Savior in the OT, then our congregations will follow suit.I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review This is probably going to be the best book that I read all year The theme is finding Christ in every Old Testament genre What a great way to get your OT reading kicked into high gear You will never read the OT in the same way again and that s a good thing I highly, highly recommend this book. This was a reread I appreciate Murray s approach to take what is sometimes a complex subject and make it accessible for all believers His story of discovery is a thread throughout the book that keeps the book interesting Each chapter is a helpful summary of a Christocentric reading of various OT texts themes Highly recommended. Very helpful in discovering Jesus in the old testament.This book has been very helpful In seeing Jesus on every page of the bible I recommend this this book to anyone who is wanting to deepen their relationship with the Lord. Paradigm ShiftI knew this stuff before perhaps but I never knew it the way I know it now because of David Murray This book has changed my life Thank you. This was very interesting, though it wasn t quite what I was expecting I do have a few doctrinal differences with the author, and I m not completely convinced on everything he sees, but he definitely gives you something to think about with his analysis of the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament writings Sometimes it seems to be a bit of a stretch, but I did really enjoy the portion on Proverbs, Psalms, and Song of Solomon at the end of the book I think he needed a bitscripture too m This was very interesting, though it wasn t quite what I was expecting I do have a few doctrinal differences with the author, and I m not completely convinced on everything he sees, but he definitely gives you something to think about with his analysis of the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament writings Sometimes it seems to be a bit of a stretch, but I did really enjoy the portion on Proverbs, Psalms, and Song of Solomon at the end of the book I think he needed a bitscripture too much quoting of other authors, imho but if nothing else this will get you thinking I wouldn t recommend it as a trustworthy reference or anything, though I bought this book after listening to his outstanding podcast on typology with Nancy Guthrie He seeks to give a flyover view of Jesus in the OT It was too much of a flyover for me Often he would have a heading and one or two sentences The places he strings paragraphs together are great The times he uses 1 2 sentences are too shallow I do appreciate how he brings the reader into his journey of seeing Jesus in the OT. A great book that helps us understand how all of the Scriptures point to Christ. I was a little skeptical going into this book, fearing it would be fluffy, and not very informative To my delight, I found that it was quite contrary to those low expectations The book is written for a popular audience, and is often written for the kind of person with little, to no real familiarity with the Old Testament especially the first third of the book.But the last two thirds of the book are quite good and helpful, even to someone who is very familiar with the Old Testament and even th I was a little skeptical going into this book, fearing it would be fluffy, and not very informative To my delight, I found that it was quite contrary to those low expectations The book is written for a popular audience, and is often written for the kind of person with little, to no real familiarity with the Old Testament especially the first third of the book.But the last two thirds of the book are quite good and helpful, even to someone who is very familiar with the Old Testament and even those who do not suffer from the same kind of prejudice against the OT that Murray seems to be writing.Murray makes a convincing case that the Old Testament is thoroughly about Christ that it is the progressive revelation of Christ that in the New Covenant all might be revealed and the glory of Christ made known to all, having been prepared for and promise in the OT.This is a really good read, and I recommend it especially to those that don t have much familiarity with the OT, or much inclination to actually read and study it This will help get a sense of what to look for, what to expect, and motivation to doing so
