Preaching Christ from the OT

This was a good reminder for me, especially as I’m preaching through Numbers right now:

Drawing lines to Christ is not preaching Christ. How does a line to Christ edify the hearers? A preacher’s task is not just to draw lines to Christ but to preach Christ in such a way that people will be attracted to him and put their faith, trust, and hope in him.

From Sidney Greidanus, Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1999), 98.
