That Scripture Might Be Fulfilled: Typology and the Death of Christ

by Paul M. Hoskins

Christian teaching about the death of Jesus tends to glance quickly at the Old Testament, as if the Old Testament does not provide much insight into the death of Jesus. In contrast, the New Testament authors frequently point to the Old Testament when they teach about Jesus’ death. Similarly, Jesus’ words at the Lord’s Supper are packed with allusions to Old Testament sacrifices. This book provides examples of the rich insights that emerge from following the New Testament’s pointers back to the Old Testament. It examines Old Testament types or patterns that prefigure the death of Jesus. It also encourages reflection and meaningful worship, especially at celebrations of the Lord’s Supper and Easter.
