Jesus Died and Rose According to the Scriptures

1 Corinthains 15 deals with the core of our faith and our focus for the next three weeks, Jesus’s resurrection.

In verses 3-4, Paul writes, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,”

This isn’t the only time the New Testament claims that all of the Old Testament spoke of Jesus.

John 1:45 addresses the beginning of Jesus’s ministry: “Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to two disciples in Luke 24:27: “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he (Jesus) explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.”

Later, the writer of Hebrews quoted Psalm 40 in Hebrews 10:5-7: “Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: ‘…Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll…’”

You won’t read far in the Old Testament without seeing clues to Jesus, if you know what you’re looking for.
