      Finding Jesus in the Old Testament

      In John 5 and Luke 24 we hear Jesus saying that the scripture points to him, though the people did not see it. Even his followers did not see it and it took him teaching them on the road to Emmaus for them to get it.
      It seems we still struggle to see Jesus in the Old Testament. This is a place for you to share a passage where Jesus is found in the Old Testament.

      Since it's nearly Christmas, I share this familiar passage.
      Isaiah 9:1-7
      [1]Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with glory.
      [2]The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.
      [3]You will enlarge the nation of Israel, and its people will rejoice. They will rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest and like warriors dividing the plunder.
      [4]For you will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders. You will break the oppressor’s rod, just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian.
      [5]The boots of the warrior and the uniforms bloodstained by war will all be burned. They will be fuel for the fire.
      [6]For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
      [7]His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!

      In Habakkuk 3:13 we read literally from the original Hebrew: Thou wentest forth with the YESHA [variant of ESHUA-Jesus] of [or for] thy people; with YESHUA thy MESSIAH [thine Anointed One: i.e., with Jesus thy Anointed] thou woundest the head of the house of the wicked one [Satan].

      Genesis 3:15 NIV And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

      The offspring (Hebrew singular) of the woman is Jesus, who was struck (wounded) by the 'serpent' (Satan) and crushed his head (all power and authority).
      Jesus had a human mother, but no human father. All just like GOD said it would be back in the garden of Eden.

      True. Share from those passages, if you will.

      Habakkuk 3:8-18
      [8]Was it in anger, lord, that you struck the rivers and parted the sea? Were you displeased with them? No, you were sending your chariots of salvation!
      [9]You brandished your bow and your quiver of arrows. You split open the earth with flowing rivers.
      [10]The mountains watched and trembled. Onward swept the raging waters. The mighty deep cried out, lifting its hands in submission.
      [11]The sun and moon stood still in the sky as your brilliant arrows flew and your glittering spear flashed.
      [12]You marched across the land in anger and trampled the nations in your fury.
      [13]You went out to rescue your chosen people, to save your anointed ones. You crushed the heads of the wicked and stripped their bones from head to toe.
      [14]With his own weapons, you destroyed the chief of those who rushed out like a whirlwind, thinking Israel would be easy prey.
      [15]You trampled the sea with your horses, and the mighty waters piled high.
      [16]I trembled inside when I heard this; my lips quivered with fear. My legs gave way beneath me, and I shook in terror. I will wait quietly for the coming day when disaster will strike the people who invade us.
      [17]Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,
      [18]yet I will rejoice in the lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!

      My brother is very good at showing me "types and shadows" all throughout the OT, I will try to get back with some verses he has if I can reach him this week.
      Its good to note that in the OT when they prophesied the Messiah they knew nothing about the cross or roman crucifixion at all. Yet every detail from the messiah riding on the donkey, being betrayed and rejected and "dying" is in full favor of the NT.
      I can only think up psalms and Isaiah right now but my brother has showed me some things from the OT that absolutely blew my mind and I hope to share them soon.

      My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
      Psalm 22:1

      For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
      Psalm 22:16

      Jesus is symbolized throughout the Old Testament in a variety of ways. The whole Bible really is about him. The Passover lamb is a symbol of what Jesus would do perfectly for us on the cross. 1 Corinthians 5:7 tells us that.

      Job 19:25-27
      [25]“But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last.
      [26]And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God!
      [27]I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!
