I know isn't it?! I think those of us who are hungrily seeking the true gospel of grace sometimes maybe are a bit suspicious of the Old Testament "cuz it's law". But this wonderful post shows that Christ is there throughout the Old Testament hidden maybe partly behind shadows. But He is there! St Augustine said; "The New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed" and the Old Testament can dramatically reveal Christ to us in wonder!!

Furthermore it can show us how much MORE glorious a life we should be living because we are in a Covenant of grace!!
