The Sum and Scope of Old Testament Predictions-Christ Jesus

“The whole volume of Scripture did prophesy of him. He was the sum and scope of all their predictions. He was Abraham’s promised seed, Abraham’s Isaac, Jacob’s Shiloh, Moses’ Great Prophet, Esaias’ Immanuel, Ezekiel’s Shepherd, Daniel’s Holy One, Zechariah’s Branch, Malachi’s Angel; all of them predictions to foretell his coming. All their types and ceremonies pointed at him. He was Abel’s Sacrifice, Noah’s Dove, Abraham’s First Fruits, Aaron’s Rod, the Israelites’ Rock, the Patriarchs’ Manna, David’s Tabernacle, Solomon’s Temple; all these prefigured his incarnation. They were the folds and swathing of the babe Jesus.”–Bishop Brownrig.
