William Beck was preparing a short word of greeting to the students of German Theological Seminary when God gave him the desire to write a student help guide on the amazing works of Jesus (as recorded in the Old Testament) and how they relate to one's own personal life.
That book, Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament (paperback, 978-1-60034-920-1), is now a multifaceted challenge to lay readers to dig deeper into a productive study of the Bible. Says Beck, "From Genesis to Malachi, the reader will be surprised to find startling appearances of Jesus prior to His birth in Bethlehem. The knowledge gained will lead the reader to a deeper love for Jesus and a respect for God's Word."
Due to age and poor health, Beck translated his efforts from the classroom to pen and paper. His book is a resume of God's effective activity in the lives of normal people and how He made a difference in their aspirations and lifestyles. What is a Christophany? Who is the Lord, Jehovah in the Old Testament? Is the name "Jesus" found in the Old Testament? Are biblical predictions of the future history-making events beginning to come into focus today? These and other questions are subject matters to challenge your thinking in this study. Readers will discover for themselves how to relate the Bible to their daily lives--and, more important, how to apply it.
William Beck is a former professor of Old Testament studies, the Hebrew language, and biblical archaeology at German Theological Seminary and Luther Rice University. He has participated in several archaeological excavations in Israel and done graduate studies in Jerusalem.
