Help for Preaching Christ in the Old Testament

Jesus Christ is all over the Old Testament. He said so Himself many, many times.

But sometimes we have a hard time seeing it. We prefer to preach moralistic, legalistic, or self-help messages out of the Old Testament, leaving the “gospel” messages to come from the New.

The leaders of the Gospel Coalition pray and work for that to change. To that end, they have an entire subheading on their site called “Preaching Christ from the Old Testament,” replete with commentary helps, articles, and sample sermons to help you, your pastor, and your church teach the gospel faithfully from every page of Scripture. Here is a sample from their Leviticus page, with Christ-centered sermons from Leviticus by pastors like Mark Dever, Kevin DeYoung, and Ligon Duncan.

The Gospel Coalition also recommends BibleMesh for the same purposes, and pastors can sign up for free.
