Christ in the Old Testament compiled and edited by Thomas Hopko, illustrated by Niko Chocheli

Images of Christ, cast as shadows in Old Testament texts, illuminate this book of biblical prophecy for young and old alike. Illustrator Niko Chocheli creates a stunning graphic dialog between the voice of the prophets and the coming Christ who eternally rests in their words. The Son of Man whom Daniel saw in night visions, the Branch of Jesse whom Isaiah saw shoot forth, and the apparitions of other prophets emerge as vivid icons of our Lord.”

~St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press

This book shows the connection between the Old and New Testament as each illustration is accompanied by scriptural quotes from the Old and New.  This book is beautifully illustrated and an excellent way to familiarize children with the Bible and help them see the connection between the Old and the New Testaments.
