Christ As The Burnt Offering

by Keith R. Keyser

The work of Christ is so unfathomable to the human mind that God has given us numerous
pictures of it in the Old Testament in order to help us appreciate the multifaceted glory
of the Messiah. Due to past abuses of typology, in recent days the typological
significance of many of the great events of the Bible has been either ignored or reviled
by many Bible teachers; nevertheless, the New Testament itself bears witness to the
presence of types and shadows in its ancient counterpart.

The Promise, the Prospect, and the Period

Steve Hulshizer

In John 14 Christ encourages his disciples by declaring that while He
was leaving them, He would return. “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in
God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I
would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for
you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may
be also.” (John 14:1-3)
