Everywhere in the Old Testament, the Fathers of the Church see Christ, the Theotokos (the Virgin Mary), and the Church revealed. The Fathers always understood the Old Testament in light of the New. Moses in the basket is a "type" of baptism. Jacob crossed his hands to bless Joseph's younger son (Ephraim) over his older son (Manesseh)--a prefiguring both of the Cross and of the surpassing of the Old Covenant by the New.
The series focuses first on key scriptures associated with Christ's Pascha--Moses and the Exodus from Egypt, Jonah and the Great Fish, the Three Holy Youths in the Furnace, etc. Later, God willing, it will expand to include other well known and loved Old Testament stores. Using simple verse and colorful, semi-iconographic illustrations that are both sweet and reverent, the series introduces children and their parents to the profound truths revealed in the pages of the Old Testament. We hope that the readers will develop a thirst to meet Christ in the Scriptures that so richly reveal Him.
