The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

          (Isaiah 40:5)

 

You don’t go to Paris to look at the base of the Eiffel Tower and say, “That’s all there is to this structure.” No, you look beyond the parts to see the whole. Likewise, if you would desire to see Christ in His fullness, you don’t stop with the partial information about Him in the Old Testament. The prophet Isaiah only gave us a glimpse of the coming of the Messiah—hundreds of years before He actually came. The writer of Hebrews tells us that God progressively revealed Himself until His final unveiling in the person of Jesus Christ.
