EVERY book in the bible is about Jesus. Did you know that? It's not the God of the Old Testament and
then the God of the New Testament. From Genesis
to Exodus - Jesus is there as the expression of Gods heart He IS the promise that breaks the curse...
Basically - Jesus is hidden in every line of the Old Testament, in symbolic form. He's the atonement cover on the ark, He's the Bridegroom of Blood for Moses, He's the burning bush, He's the voice from the mountain, He's the burning fire pot that walked between the animal halves-making a covenant with Abraham that was upheld by His own promised blood, He's the Angel of the Lord all through out - He's the promised son to Eve-that would crush the serpents Head to redeem her like Adam couldn't...I could go on forever! LOOK-for your Redeemer has always Lived-for YOU. For ME.

In JEREMIAH and LAMENTATIONS it is Jesus that is the Weeping Prophet
