First, we in this house ‘Love’ Morgan Freeman the actor/person.
I sat patiently, for the most part,
while enjoying the many stumbling
throughout the six stories,
until the last one!
“There is no scripture in the old testament about Jesus Christ!”
Morgan Freeman quote!
As a believer in the “Word of God” (Creator of All),
I believe that he (Morgan Freeman), chose the incorrect people to ask his questions.
Because the Old Testament was written, with the blessing of God,
to show God’s son the Messiah!
A few of the old testament scriptures to help make my point.
Christ’s Death and Resurrection In the Old Testament.
Prophecies of the
Messiah (translated Christ in English) is not a name …
it is His Title.
offers one of the most profound prophecies in the entire Old Testament, written over 700 years before Christ’s death and resurrection.
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
The Old Testament is filled with prophecies and types of Jesus’ suffering and death and resurrection as payment for the sins of the world, and the New Testament points those out.
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced”
“Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:” – Luke 24:46
Simon Peter starts out on the day of Pentecost explaining that Jesus the Messiah had risen from the dead, “Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it,”
Peter then pulled from the Psalms to prove the truth of his testimony.
“For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
“Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.” Act 2:24-32
The sacrifice and resurrection of the Messiah are throughout the Old Testament.
Psalm 22, written by King David a millennium before Christ, gives us the very perspective of the Lord hanging on the cross.
It describes how the people mocked Christ (Psalm 22:7-8; Mat 27:41-43), how they cast lots to divide up his clothes (Psalm 22:18;Mat 27:35), how his bones were out of joint (Psalm 22:14), how the wicked had surrounded him and pierced his hands and feet (Psalm 22:16),
the scars of which Thomas later got to touch and feel (John 20:27).
Psalm 22 ends by saying God’s righteousness would be declared to “a people who shall be born”
Hebrews noted in verses 10:4-5, quoting Psalm 40:6:
The sacrifice of bulls and goats could never take away sin, as the writer of Hebrews noted in verses 10:4-5,
quoting Psalm 40:6:
“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Wherefore when he cometh into the world,
Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:”
Throughout the Law and the Prophets, God revealed His eternal plan of redemption to mankind.
In advance, He described the sacrifice and resurrection of the Messiah.
It was a plan He had purposed before He had even formed humanity.
He then accomplished it, and through Jesus Christ we have the victory now and forever.
Praise the King!
“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.”
