The Bible is one single story and all of it points to Jesus. Understanding the Old Testament helps us appreciate more clearly what we read in the New Testament, and often we need to see the fulfilment in the New Testament to make sense of the Old.
There are lots of different ways the Old Testament points to Jesus. Perhaps the most direct way is some of the teaching of the prophets that directly speak of the coming Messiah. The book of Zechariah is a short book that is full of these promises of what the Messiah would be like and what he would do.
In this series we look at five of these promises and see how they are all fulfilled in Jesus.
