This week, Nancy Guthrie speaks about seeing Jesus in the historical books of the Old Testament. Her book The Son of David, third in her series Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, explains how each part of the story of Old Testament history – the leader Joshua, the judges of Israel, the redeemer Boaz, and Israel’s many kings – reveals and signifies the Christ who was to come.

    Esther did sacrifice, royalty for sacrifice, she risked offending the King, so to say nothing in her was covenant fidelity was there , did not follow exegesis. Yes, it’s true we have to be in Christ, but once in Christ, does not the same heroism of Esther become ours also? Another way of saying this is Romans 4 leads us to resurrection life in Christ and victory, Romans 6! Tremor Longman talks about not either Christ or example but both an. Your group seems to want one not both. Hebrews 11 celebrates the faith exploits, actions it does not minimimalize them to work in reformed dogmatics. By faith conquered kingdoms, put foreign armies, etc. Grace does not erase faith in Hebrews. It seems also Philipians 2, Christ models an example not just substitionary atonement. David, is mentioned for his faith, Hebrews 11 so I agree with he Christological priority but I do not think that means the image of God is erased from Kingdom process and example, character, heroics, etc. David rushed, threw a rock, that is the historical facts, so he was not in passivity and calling that grace. Something Dallas Willard called the great misconception of our time. Not saying you did that but seems to be better to follow Tremper both and.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. (Romans 16:17-18)
