This also sheds light on the fact that much of the Old Testament points to the approaching Messiah through foreshadow rather than direct announcement. Be mindful of this when reading Scripture.
Now then, you have completed the training course. I can’t say how impressed I am with you. You are now properly prepared to take the actual challenge, so go ahead and begin with easy mode.

If you started there and have gone backwards the whole time, would you mind to teach the novices how to study? I’d appreciate it.
