Item description for 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures by Bob Beasley...

Overview
Living Stone Books Publication If Jesus didn't come along until the New Testament, what is He doing in the Old Testament? In his forthcoming book, 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures, author Bob Beasley, a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary, seeks to answer that question in many more than 101 ways. In fact, even though the Old Testament, or "the Hebrew Scriptures," was written 2,000 to 500 years prior to Jesus' earthly ministry, some say the Lord may be found on its every page. Just as a great novel or movie will provide early warnings of things to come later on, the Old Testament is full of foreshadowing, specific prophesies, mighty works, and pre-incarnate appearances of the Savior. He is prefigured by men like Adam, Noah, Joseph, Moses, and David. Jesus is foreshadowed by furniture, rocks, food, a snake, doorways, trees, colors, and animals in many ways. He appears as smoke and fire and as the mysterious Angel of the Lord, all of this hundreds of years before born to Mary in Bethlehem. On the road to Emmaus following His resurrection, Jesus spoke with some of His followers. Luke tells us, beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the [Hebrew] Scriptures concerning himself (Luke 24:27). In a compact and readable 101 chapters surveying Genesis to Malachi, Beasley merely scratches the surface of the wonderful truths of Jesus in the Old Testament, sure to deepen anyone's understanding of and love for the entire Bible. This is a book for everyone, new Christians as well as old, and also for those seeking answers as to whether of not the Bible is trustworthy. The impact of the foreshadowing of Jesus is truly powerful. 101 Portraits will open the Scriptures for you as never before.

Reviews - What do customers think about 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures?

Excellent resource  May 4, 2008
I am having a great time going through my Bible marking all the portraits of Jesus he brings out. I am learning so much about foreshadowing of our Lord's life and death. I have heard of some of the obvious ones, but this author brings forth portraits where you wouldn't have thought they existed. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in seeing just what an awesome work of art the Bible is!
 
He knows what the Bible talks about!!!!  Apr 3, 2008
I am a pastor.
As a graduate from Westminster Theological Seminary I also have been faithful to preach Christ-Centered sermons so far.
Taking a look at Bob's Beasley's book, I have been so thankful to our LORD that I review his book "101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures."
This book is one of the best books I have been reading so far. Bob does his best to reveal our LORD CHRIST from the old testment of scripture.
The contents of the book is so precisely and spiritually summarized that anyone who reads this book will have great insight of how to read the Bible as Jesus wants.

Bob says about this book that it is primarily for lay people, but I am sure that all kinds of preachers have to read this book mandatorily.
Luke 24:27 Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures.

101 Days of Jesus  Jan 23, 2008
What better way to pass the time than meditating on the person of Jesus Christ? In "101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures", Bob Beasley gives us Jesus in all of His New Testament glory by taking us back to the Old Testament. After all, isn't that what the apostles did to show us the wonder of and beauty of our Savior? One has to ask if Bob has not captured on these pages some sense of the conversation Jesus had with those men on the road to Emmaus when He opened up the Scriptures to them. Thank you, Bob, for putting these meditations down in print. I am going to make sure every member of my congregation has the opportunity to read and profit from this book.
 
Guided Tour of Old Testament Shows Christ on Every Page  Jan 16, 2008
101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures is a wonderful resource for both pastors and laypeople alike. Christians often hear that Christ is found on every page of Scripture, yet many still struggle at times to see him on the page in their day-to-day reading. But 101 Portraits gives you an amazing guided tour of the Old Testament as it points to Jesus Christ on every stop along the way. Equally amazing, each stop along the way is easy to understand, short and pithy (2 pages per passage), and yet points the way to deeper study if you are so inclined. Now there's no excuse for not seeing how Jesus Christ is the "same yesterday, today and forever!" This is a trip through Scripture we can and should all take.
