Children's Book: Christ in the Old Testament
Then Jesus said to them, "these are my words which I spoke to you, while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled." Then he opened their minds to the Scriptures.
-- Luke 24:44-45
Images of Christ, cast as shadows in Old Testament texts, illuminate this book of biblical prophecy for young and old alike. Illustrator Niko Chocheli creates a stunning graphic dialog between the voice of the prophets and the coming Christ who eternally rests in their words. The Son of Man whom Daniel saw in night visions, the Branch of Jesse whom Isaiah saw shoot forth, and the apparitions of other prophets emerge as vivid icons of our Lord.
