As we've been walking through Romans each Sunday, you may have noticed how often we are running into Old Testament references, quotations, and themes.
The use of the Old Testament in the New Testament is an intriguing as well as often complex study. However, the fruits of finding the connections are worth the effort. There are numerous ways in which the New Testament uses the OT, but the below list, from Sydney Greidanus*, is just a few ways in which you can specifically look for how the OT points to Christ in your own Bible reading and Bible study preparations. [This is just a short synopsis of the categories he gives. Keep in mind that these categories often overlap and aren't necessarily exhaustive of all the nuances between Old and New Testament.]
