A Christophany is a picture of Jesus seen throughout the Bible – specifically the Old Testament. Though we quickly understand that prophecy in the Bible points to Jesus, so too do people, events, geography – all types and shadows pointing to the fulfillment and fullness in Christ Jesus. In this first part of a three-part series, we listen to one of my recent sermons and discover the delight of finding Jesus throughout all of God’s Word. This first section focuses on Jesus being our Rock and our Creator.
