The Old Testament’s promises fulfilled in the New

September 12, 2009

The moral law of Moses had educated man’s moral sense, but left the springs of conduct still impotent; the sacrifices had shown that sin must be atoned for, but had failed to make final atonement; the Tabernacle and the Temple had set forth the truth that without the presence of God men can never fulful their true and proper destiny, but the Temple had become a symbol of national and religious exclusiveness…It all pointed to somethng better to come.

R.V.G. Tasker, The OT in the NT (pp.95-96)
