Biblical theology has been a hot topic for the last five or ten years. I, for one, am glad for the interest in studying God’s unfolding plan throughout Scripture. But for as many pages have been written on the subject, relatively few are accessible to the majority of people in our churches. I would love for people to swim in the depths of Vos, Ridderbos, and Kline, but that is like trying to learn how to ride a bicycle by jumping on a Ducati 1098s.
That’s why I’m excited about David Murray’s new book, Jesus on Every Page: 10 Simple Ways to Seek and Find Christ in the Old Testament. Murray introduces us to his own Emmaus road experience when he grew to realize the value and purpose of the Old Testament. He demonstrates what Peter, Paul, and John say about Christ in the Scriptures as well as what Jesus himself taught about his relationship to Scripture.
Pastors and elders, this is a great book to use among your flock. Having read it and having interviewed Dr. Murray on Christ the Center, I can testify that he’s a winsome and clear communicator. That combination coupled with this subject matter makes for a delightful combination—a welcome place to be introduced to biblical theology and the wonder of finding “Jesus on every page.”
