A Mini Bible Study to Help Children See Jesus in the Old Testament

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” -John 1:1

Jesus is not mentioned by name in the Old Testament, but he is a central figure throughout. He is first seen in the Old Testament as the person who appeared as “the Angel of the Lord” (Gen 16:7). He came temporally in the form of a human, much before his final incarnation as a baby in Bethlehem. Yet this same “Angel of the Lord” is called and addressed often as “the Lord” himself (Gen 12:7, 17:1, and 19:1).

John 5:39 states, “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have enteral life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.” And in Luke 24:27, Jesus reminds them, “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.”

If we can find where Jesus is seen in the Old Testament, we can connect him to the New Testament, showing our children that Jesus is, in fact, the living word, not just a man who came to save us from our sins long after man was created. Lee Ann expounds on the following stories and passages that connect Jesus to the Old Testament and the New Testament:
