What do you know about the Old Testament sanctuary and its fulfillment in Christ’s ministry on earth and in heaven? Have you considered how the sanctuary sheds light on salvation, the nature of humanity, the law and the gospel, the judgment, Christian life and worship, the believer’s assurance, or last-day events? Most Christians recognize that the spring festivals of Israel pointed to Jesus’ death, resurrection and enthronement at the right hand of God, but they somehow miss the correlation of the fall festivals to Christ’s heavenly ministry.
In Christ With Us, Warren Shipton draws from the imagery and teachings of Hebrews, Revelation, and other New Testament passages (with help from scholarly sources and history) to shed light on the sanctuary as depicted in the books of Moses, the prophets and the Psalms. His aim is to assist the reader in better understanding and appreciating God’s means of dealing with the sin problem through Jesus’ sacrifice on earth and ministry as High Priest in heaven, revealing God’s character of love, mercy and justice and the spiritual connections between the teachings of the sanctuary, the concept of the great controversy, and other major biblical teachings.
The book is a primer for the newcomer to the topic of the sanctuary as well as a resource for the seasoned student. If you want to know more about Jesus and how the Old Testament sanctuary points forward to what He did for humankind in dying on the cross and what He continues to do for us in heaven as our High Priest, this book is for you.
