Meet the Jesus you’ve scarcely known! The storyline of Scripture presents the coming Messiah as the Prophet-like-Moses, the Priest-like-Melchizedek, and the King-like-David. Understanding these roles in the Old Testament shines a spotlight on Jesus in the New Testament, helping us to better understand Him as our Savior and the Hero of the Bible. We first will look at the prophecies concerning these three roles in the Old Testament. Then, we will gain a deeper and richer appreciation for 1) the life of Jesus as it is presented in the gospels, 2) His current ministry at the right hand of the Father, and 3) the blessed hope of His return and the establishment of His kingdom. As we trace the roles of the Messiah, we will find Him leading us to a fresh consideration of His Kingdom.
