One of the great benefits of being on the campus of Southern Seminary is the frequent theology forums. Last week, Tom Schreiner moderated a discussion that included Peter Gentry, Jim Hamilton, and Duane Garrett. The forum was titled “Christology in the Old Testament: A Panel Discussion of how and to what extent we should see Christ in the Old Testament.”
Tom Schreiner opens the discussion by asserting that all of the panelist agree that the Old Testament is about Christ (e.g., Luke 24:27). The panelists disagree, however, on how this works out in exegesis of the Old Testament text. This is a great discussion, and I hope you will listen to the whole thing.[audio:http://www.sbts.edu/MP3/fall2008/20080924_Christology.mp3]
“Christology in the Old Testament: A Panel Discussion of how and to what extent we should see Christ in the Old Testament”
About a decade ago I helped teach a Sunday school class for adults at my church using Dr. Edmund Clowney’s book “The Unfolding Mystery,” which is a short work on the subject of Christ in the Old Testament. It made a good study.
Great discussion. Thanks!
Thanks for the resource!!! Nyesh
Wow, what a great post. Thanks Denny.
On one hand Jesus fills up the meaning of the whole Law and Prophets, not just a list of passages we need added to the back of our Bibles. On the other hand, His teaching is authoritative and we should not let an inappropriate allegorical method, or anything else, be used to distract us from loyalty to Him.
Thanks, Jeff. Great to hear from you!
