I can't remember a lot of this being taught on,in the church I grew up in. That is,what the Old Testament Hebrew people knew of the Messiah,who we know,by the name Jesus Christ? I know they were taught,that He was to come. I remember Job saying,that he knew his Redeemer lived and that he would see him. But how many years and what years are we talking about,for the Old Testament Hebrew people? I know their temple and Jerusalem,was destroyed in 70ad,by a Roman army. But at about what time is it said,that God first called Abraham? Wondering too,what would the average Hebrew person back then,have been taught and known,about the coming Messiah? Who he was? What he was to do for them,etc? And I know some of them knew God personally,by what God did for them. But what about the larger mass of OT Hebrew people? What did they know about God,in a personal sense? Did God reveal himself to many people back then,in a personal sense, in a highly personal way?
Just a lot of questions and wonderings,because like I say,I don't think all that much was taught about this,in the church I grew up in. And sad to say;but I was just thinking recently,that there is surely a good part of the Old Testament,that I've never even read. And I was thinking,I surely do need to read such.
What's got me thinking about all of this now,is a question that's come up in another group. Some people wondering or saying,just what did the Old Testament people know,about Jesus Christ?
One other thing I've just remembered and need to look up again;but that's some scripture in the New Testament,that says the gospel was took to Abraham.
