Consider This Story... John and Fred began to talk about Jesus during their school lunch. John mentioned that Jesus was the Savior of the world, and Jesus saved Fred too.

A: The main reason the accounts about OT priests, prophets, and kings are included in the Bible is historical. These accounts tell us how God in his love carried out his plan of salvation down through the many years. But it is also proper for us to think about Jesus each time we read about an OT prophet, priest, or king. This is true because each of these accounts was also a picture for the OT believers of what the Messiah to come would do for them.
