The Messianic Bible

In preparation for this Sunday’s sermon on Genesis 3 I am reading James Hamilton excellent and lengthy essay The Skull Crushing Seed of the Woman. In it he observes that a proper biblical hermeneutic would mean that” from start to finish the OT is a messianic document, written from a messianic perspective, to sustain a messianic hope.” Hamilton later observes that we need to do careful textual work before looking for Jesus under every rock. Fair enough. However, if Jesus is temple, sacrifice, priest, prophet, and king, what else is there in the Old Creation that is not messianic in nature? For the record, Jesus may not be under the rock, but he is the true Rock.
