Item description for Christ in the Old Testament: Old Testament Appearances of Christ in Human Form by James A. Borland, J. Borland & Borland James A...

There are many instances in the Old Testament when God appears in human form. Were these occurrences actually manifestations of the second person of the Trinity? Yes, says James Borland in Christ in the Old Testament. Focusing on what he believes to be pre-incarnation appearances of Christ, Borland presents a positive theology of theophanies, examines the "Melchizedek question," and shows how Christophanies provided immediate revelation in Old Testament times, preparing the way for the incarnation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christ In The Old Testament?

Excellent  Dec 27, 2002
As I had never studdied theophanies in the Old Testament, this book was very informative. It is well written and I especially liked how every chapter ended with a concise summary of the main points. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Christ in the Old Testament.
A Study of Old Testament Christophanies  Jun 3, 2000
Borland's lucid definition and description of Christophanies in the Old Testament is on its way to becoming a Christian classic. His thesis is that the Second Person of the Trinity appeared in human form to chosen individuals in Old Testament times. After carefully defining the terms and distinguishing such appearances from visions, dreams, the visible divine glory, and the incarnation of Christ, the author specifies the characteristics and forms of the Old Testament Christophanies. Every explanation is based upon a careful exegesis of the pertinent biblical texts.

Various views and explanations offered by a wide range of scholars are considered one by one and compared to the written record in the Old Testament. In the discussion of the form taken by the Second Person of the Trinity in these appearances, Borland deals with each passage in turn (e.g., Genesis 18:1-33; 32:24-32; Numbers 22:22-35; Joshua 5:13-6:5; Judges 6:11-23). Passages that might appear to present problems for Borland's view are also taken into consideration-each one being systematically exegeted from the Hebrew text itself.

What contribution does such a study make to Christian theology? The author clearly describes the relationship that Christophanies have to various areas of theology (bibliology, theology proper, and Christology). Such appearances in Old Testament times fulfilled certain divine purposes which Borland carefully identifies and explains. Before drawing the study to a close, he examines the apologetic value of the doctrine of Christophanies.

Three appendixes provide additional material for the reader to consider: "A Brief Outline of the History of the Interpretation of the Christophanies,""Why Melchizedek Is Not a Christophany," and "Five Men Who Met God Face to Face: Practical Lessons from the Christophanies." A bibliography and a series of very helpful indexes round out this great book.
