Recommended Books on Christ and the Cross: Part 2

Resources on the Work of Christ

Last semester I taught a class called Christ and the Cross in which we examined titles of Christ (Son of God, Lord, Prophet, etc) and metaphors for salvation (Redemption, Reconciliation, Victory, etc.). We studied the OT background for these concepts and what they mean. It was a huge blessing for me and the students (so they said!), and I can’t wait to do it again.

You Will Know That I Am the LORD

I noticed an interesting theme on ‘knowing the LORD’ when I started reading through Exodus this year (using my bible marking plan). I then started noticing it elsewhere and would like to show what I think is a surprising connection in the New Testament.

Jesus as Prophet, Priest and King in Hebrews 1:1-3

In the second week of Christ and the Cross at CCBCY we looked at how the roles of Israel’s prophet, priest, and king are ultimately exceeded and fulfilled in Christ. Using the book of Hebrews as a launching pad, we compared and contrasted Jesus to Moses (the prototype prophet), to the Levitical sacrificial system (including Priesthood, Sacrifice, Law, and Covenant), and to Israel’s kings, particularly David. In each of these offices we saw hints of inherent incompleteness and prophetic foreshadowing of Christ.

Recommended Books on Christ and the Cross: Part 1

I’m teaching a new class at CCBCY called Christ and the Cross, and you can read more about it here. In a follow up post I’d like to recommend some resources that have been helpful for me in studying the titles of Christ and biblical metaphors for the work of Christ. Each of these topics is like a deep ocean full of treasure to be found within, but perhaps it’s also a little intimidating to first dive in. That is my purpose for offering the class, and for posting these resources. Having just finished up the first half of the class, Christ’s titles, I thought I’d share what I’ve found useful.
