Christ in the Old Testament- 1 Samuel 1

Christ in the Old TestamentPastor Kachelmeier is the guest on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in 1 Samuel chapter 1. In this passage we learn about how Christ fills the Old Testament scriptures with meaning. In a passage like this, there is no direct prophecy about the Coming Christ. There is no direct discourse in which God is speaking to Hannah. In fact, Hannah isn’t even mentioned in the New Testament scriptures. Here we are given an image of God who desires to be in the midst of His afflicted people, hearing their prayers and answering their pleas for mercy. Hannah goes to the place where God is present for her pointing to the Incarnate God who comes to share in our afflictions by taking up our sorrows and being afflicted for us in order to bring us into His presence.   (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)
