Item description for The Shadow of Christ in the Law of Moses by Vern Sheridan Poythress & Poythress...

The first five books of the Old Testament were written centuries before the birth of Jesus. Yet they intricately involve Him. Here Vern Poythress explores Genesis through Deuteronomy, demonstrating how the sacrifices and traditions of the Hebrews graphically foreshadow Christ's relationship with His people. Dr. Poytthress also explains how the penalties of the law prefigure the destruction of sin and guilt through Jesus

Reviews - What do customers think about The Shadow of Christ in the Law of Moses?

Important Book for Understanding Christ of the Bible  May 26, 2006
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. God never changes. It's important to understand that Old Testament believers were saved by believing in the Holy Trinity just as we Christians of 21st century are. Anyone who denies this denies the Truth of the Bible.
Excellent Book  May 24, 2006
I have not read a book of such erudition and wisdom as this book. D. A. Carson's books are nothing compared to the timeless truth contained in the pages of this book. Highly recommended if you have not read this before. If you have read it before, read it again!
Great for Christian Understanding of Jews and the O. T.  Jan 4, 2005
Christians sometimes misunderstand the relationship between Jews and Jesus Christ. This book is helpful in showing that Christ is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. Christianity is not continuation of Judaism. In fact, Judaism today only started after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Ancient Israelite religion in the Old Testament is a different religion altogether -- there was sacrifice for one! This book helps one to see the reality of the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Five Books of Moses. It is an essential read for anyone interested in understanding the relationship between Christianity and Judaism.
Somewhat Disappointing  Nov 27, 2002
I was somewhat disappointed with this book. Only the first half of the book deals specifically with the law of Moses and its relation to Christ. While doing so, I often thought Poythress was finding symbolism where none existed.

The second half of the book deal with modern society. That is, how does the Law of Moses affect us today? How should it affect our 21st century laws? He also includes a critique of modern prisons (which he rightly sees as complete failures), a critique of theonomy and a lengthy discussion of what Jesus meant with he said he came to fulfill the law.

This book is good but not great. If you are looking for an easy introduction this is a good place to start.

Good instruction about typology, without going overboard.  Sep 24, 1999
In this book, Poythress does a nice job of introducing the reader to the study of typology in the Old Testament (as it relates to the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ), while at the same time refraining from "seeing" Christ where there is no real type. If you've ever wondered how the tabernacle, the law, or the promised land (as well as many other topics) stand in relation to the work of Jesus as Messiah, this book is for you.
