Publisher's Description

Discover Jesus throughout the Old Testament!
The son trudges uphill, bearing wood for his own sacrifice. Is this Isaac on the slope of Mount Moriah, or Jesus on the slope of Mount Calvary? The connection between these two stories is deeper than mere coincidence. Christ is present in the story of Isaac.

In Jesus on Every Page, pastor and professor David Murray reveals Christ's presence throughout the Old Testament—in the Creation, the Law, the Psalms, the Prophets, and the Proverbs.

“Jesus is indeed on every page, and Murray's book offers a practical, accessible, and engaging introduction to the Old Testament. This book shows the glory of Christ, and is recommended especially for anyone previously intimidated by the Old Testament.”
- Vern S. Poythress, PhD, ThD, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary

“With deceptive ease Dr. David Murray brings his readers on to the Road to Emmaus for a few hours of conversation about Jesus and the Old Testament. With an enviable grace and simplicity he teaches us how to read the Old Testament as Christians.”
- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

“This is not a small book, it is a game-changer. I read it with a notepad in one hand and at times tears on every page. This profound work shows that Jesus is on every page of God's love story. This is a book I will read over and over. I highly recommend it!”
- Sheila Walsh, Singer, author, speaker, Women of Faith Conferences

“If you have always struggled to understand the Old Testament, this is the book for you. Dr. Murray has provided us with a refreshingly simple guide to seeing the glory of Jesus our Messiah throughout the Old Testament.”
- Burk Parsons, Editor, Tabletalk; Pastor, St Andrews, Orlando, FL

“There's no one I'd rather have serve as my guide for a journey down the Emmaus road than David Murray. Jesus on Every Page provides solid, understandable categories and tools for retraining ourselves on how to read and understand the Old Testament.”
- Nancy Guthrie, author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series

“With contagious delight, David Murray not only opens up the Old Testament beautifully, he draws you to marvel at the One it is all about. This is a moving, rich book that can hardly fail to help readers enjoy Jesus more in his word.”
- Michael Reeves, Head of Theology, Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship; author, Delighting in the Trinity

“If you are like me and have longed for a readable book on seeing and savoring Jesus in the Old Testament this book is the resource for you. It is biblical, practical, and preachable. I will recommend it to everyone!”
- Anthony Carter, Pastor, East Point Church, GA; author, Blood Work and On Being Black and Reformed: A New Perspective on the African American Christian Experience

“There have been strident voices urging us to see "Christ in the Old Testament" in recent years—among them, Greidanus, Goldsworthy, Clowney, and Chapell. Now comes David Murray's Jesus on Every Page—a bang-on target, concise summary of this urgently needed, hermeneutical adjustment.”
- Derek W. H. Thomas, Professor of Systematic Theology, RTS Atlanta; Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

“There could scarcely be a more worthy pursuit than seeking to learn of Jesus in the pages of Scripture....It would be difficult indeed to find a more accessible, concise, practically helpful, warm-hearted guide than David Murray's Jesus On Every Page.
- Fred G. Zaspel, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, PA; Calvary Baptist Seminary, Lansdale, PA

“Certainly one of the most helpful and most needed new books that I have seen for a long while...This book is more than a devotional read. It leads us to understand more accurately why Jesus could say of the scriptures, 'they testify of me.' What could be more important?”
- Iain H Murray, Pastor; author; Editorial Director, Banner of Truth Publishers

“His aim throughout is to remind New Testament Christians that they are whole Bible believers, and to give them a key to reading the Old Testament biblically. The key to his own book is simple enough: it is that the gospel interprets the Old Testament.”
- Dr. Iain D. Campbell, author; Adjunct Professor, Westminster Theological Seminary; Pastor, Point Free Church of Scotland

“Much has been written for seminary students and pastors on interpreting all of Scripture with a view to Christ. Unfortunately, very little has been written with the average Christian in mind. In David Murray sets out to correct this deficiency by sharing his own journey of discovery.”
- Juan Sanchez, Preaching Pastor, High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, TX

“With the enthusiasm of personal discovery and the heart of a loving pastor, David Murray explains carefully and plainly that Jesus indeed can be seen, heard, and experienced on every page of the Old Testament.”
- Barry York, Pastor; Professor of Practical Theology, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary
