Section 3: The Presence of Christ in the Old Testament

The Self-Donation of God, pg. 3:

"Because God inspired the Scriptures to speak his eternal Word Jesus through human words, we should not in our exposition of Scripture shy away from the fact that the Old Testament is to be expounded Christologically. This means that typological readings of the Old Testament are therefore completely appropriate. God's authorial intention expressed through the Old Testament authors was always to point ahead to Jesus Christ. In keeping with this, we must also positively assert that the Old Testament is a book of predictive prophecy truly fulfilled in the manifestation of the Savior. Indeed, if Christ was not present the Old Testament, it would be difficult to say Marcion was not correct after all."
