Jesus titled his Emmaus Road sermon “The things concerning himself”. He took a big text – Moses, all the Prophets, and all the scriptures. And it had two main points – His sufferings and His glory. In other words, the whole Old Testament was about Him, specifically His sufferings and His glory.
It went back and started reading the Gospels again and discovered that this note didn’t just emerge at the end of Jesus’ ministry. Right from the start He presented Himself not as a complete contrast to the Old Testament but as its climax and fulfilment.
