“Don’t ever be ashamed of being thought of as being tied to Holy Scripture. Don’t ever be ashamed of exalting Holy Scripture. You’re following in the steps of Jesus who bound himself to the Word of God, and insisted by his obedience to fulfil what was written of him.”
J. Alec Motyer, A Christian's Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament

“He found himself in the Old Testament Scriptures. He understood himself, and his role, his vocation, and his future from his Bible. He was content, later, to say: ‘The Son of Man goes as it is written of him’ (Matt. 26:24). The pathway was laid down in the Word of God, and he set himself to walk in it.”
J. Alec Motyer, A Christian's Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament

“Are you interpreting the ‘visual aid’? Egypt first, then Sinai; Passover first, then the giving of the Law; the divine work of grace first, then the life of responsive obedience, redemption/salvation first, then walking with God in his appointed way of holiness.”
