Behold the PatternMaker: How Embracing the Mysteries of the Old Testament Can Reveal Jesus Christ in New and Powerful Ways (Paperback)
"Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58)
The Apostle John made it clear. Jesus Christ was the Word of God who became flesh and dwelt among us. He was with God from the beginning, and He was (and is) God. The Apostle Paul wrote, "There is one mediator between God and man...Christ Jesus." But what does that truly mean, and how does that apply to us, as followers of Christ, today?
In this book, author Bob Palumbo provides plenty of biblical evidence that Jesus Christ, as God's Word, was both present and active from before the world was formed. It pleased the Father that His Son would be the One through whom all things would be created...and the voice and mediator between God and man throughout all generations.
By looking at the names, people, places, and events of the Old Testament, we begin to see the fingerprints of Christ all through the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. The author includes numerous word studies into the deeper meanings of these things by going back to "the original author intent," as the Hebrew language unveils.
"Behold the PatternMaker" reveals the hidden beauty of the relationship between the Father, as the "Pattern Designer," and His Son, the ultimate "patternmaker."
You will never look at the Old Testament in quite the same way again. This book will truly deepen your faith.
Yes, as the writer of the Book of Hebrews proclaimed, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
