“Not a guide but the goal” by John H. Sailhamer

“The New Testament is not so much a guide to understanding the Old Testament as it is the goal of understanding the Old Testament. Unless we understand the Old Testament picture of the Messiah, we will not recognize the New Testament picture of Jesus.”

–John H. Sailhamer, The Meaning of the Pentateuch (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity, 2009), 233.
