The claim that the events of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection took place 'according to the Scriptures' stands at the heart of the New Testament's earliest message. All four canonical Gospels declare that the Torah, Prophets and Psalms mysteriously prefigure Jesus. In this ground-breaking new book, Hays traces the strategies the Gospel writers employ to 'read backwards', showing how the Old Testament figuratively discloses the astonishing truth about Jesus' identity. Written by one of the world's most widely respected writers on the New Testament Shows how a close reading of the Gospels points unmistakably to an early belief in the divinity of Jesus A fascinating and compelling sequel to the author's critically acclaimed Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul
