The purpose of this study is to look at the life of Christ from the Hebrew Scriptures as seen through the eyes of the New Testament writers. It is the author's conviction that Jesus Christ is the Rabbi behind the writers of the New Testament and as one reads the New Testament one hears the teachings of Jesus Christ himself concerning the Hebrew Scriptures and how they find their ultimate fulfillment in Him. A few of the chapters included in this book:
- The Deity of Christ as the Eternal King Creator
- Christ Fulfills the Old Testament Covenants
- Christ Our Passover and Our Mercy Seat
- The Vicarious Substitutionary Atonement of Christ and its Results
- Christ Our Eternal King and Priest
