A Missional Discovery
When one thinks of evangelism in the Old Testament, likely figures such as Rahab and Ruth come to mind, along with others, trickling into the covenant community—foretastes of Gentiles as well as Jews called to faith in Christ following the Great Commission.
However, De Jong wonders: “Maybe we have been missing something significant. There are many places in the Old Testament where God had so designed events that became empire-wide calls for repentance and to worship the true God. Those amazing empire-wide proclamations will unfold in these chapters as we proceed.”
So, as the pre-incarnate Christ was on the way to Bethlehem and the Mount of Olives, He was already laying the foundation for World Missions. Profound hope here for Zion on her way to the New Jerusalem.
Norman De Jong, Ph.D., is a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and highly respected author of books, Bible studies and articles. With his careful textual-analyses, he may sometimes challenge conventional thinking but he always drives you to dig deeper into God’s Word.
“Today, as I look at the picture of all of us, including the dictator himself, heads bowed, eyes closed as we prayed, I realize that the world-wide mission of the gospel of the resurrected Christ is an ongoing miracle that is wonderfully presented already in the Old Testament.”
