Quotes About Jesus in the Old Testament – Pt 5 of Many

I love this quote partly because I love Psalm 119. I won’t write any more, or I’ll just be restating the quote in a much less eloquent way.

There is much in the life and teaching of Jesus which reflects the ethos of Psalm 119 — a Psalm which rejoices in the law, but rejoices more in the richness of relationship with God himself which is then expressed through diligent obedience. In fact, the Psalmist interweaves his wonder at the promise, the grace, the goodness, love and salvation of God with his determination to live according to God’s law. He delights in the law because it enables him to please the God he loves.

–Christopher J. H. Wright, Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament
