Archive: So You Want To Understand the Old Testament! - Observer Message - May 2013

If you are like me, then there is one area of God’s Word that has always prove to be difficult. That is the area of understanding the Old Testament. What is it message and why was it written the way it was written? What or who should we see on every page and in every account that is record in the books that run from Genesis to Malachi?
What is the “key” to understanding the Old Testament revelation?

You will remember that on the day of Jesus’ resurrection in the afternoon two disciples of Jesus were traveling to the little village of Emmaus. As they walked they were discussing the events of that morning. Jesus joins them and asks what they are discussing. Their reply is important!

“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, ‘Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?’ But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, “He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.”’”(Mark 16:1-7)
It’s Easter morning, very early. The tomb of Jesus Christ is empty. He’s gone! Just a cold, empty tomb. This unexpectedly empty tomb is God’s final statement to a questioning world. But what does it mean for us today? There were no decorated pillars or towering pyramids to mark Jesus’ gravesite. No cave drawings to tell His story. No golden trinkets were buried with Him to indicate His royal power. There was just an empty tomb. That’s because God has decorated His Son’s death and celebrated His Son’s accomplishments in life, not at His burial place, but in His believing people – us. Just as Jesus Christ is risen from the dead, so we are raised up from spiritual and physical death, from dullness and despair to a life filled with vigor to take on yet another week. We do so with confidence in the strength God provides and filled with vitality to smile through good times and bad, through life and death with the sure hope of God’s help. And so Jesus’ empty tomb is a place of LIFE for us – a life filled with meaning.
