The Swiftly Flowing Stream of the OT

“… The gospel…the testimony to Jesus of Nazareth… [drives] us back to the Old Testament in order to understand its presuppositions. But to go back to the Old Testament is like jumping into a swiftly flowing stream which carries us forward again to our starting point. There we see that all the various strands, images and perspectives of the Old Testament are drawn together in the person of Jesus”

Graeme Goldsworthy, Gospel and Wisdom in The Goldsworthy Trilogy, 500.
