Jesus in the Old Testament

February 28th, Tuesday at 7pm-8pm

On the Road to Emmaus, Jesus ‘explained to them in all the Scriptures the things about himself’ (Luke 24:16). What could he have been talking about? Where is Jesus in the Old Testament Scriptures? On Pentecost Sunday a breathless St. Peter ran out of the Upper Room and explained to the crowds below what had just happened, using the Old Testament to let Jesus speak of his Resurrection. The purpose of this series of talks is to hear the voice of Jesus in the Old Testament and to show how, in reality, he is the one who “fulfils the Scriptures” and brings them to life, Old Testament and New.

Fr Terence Crotty OP is a member of the Dominican community in Dublin, where he teaches Scripture in the Studium to the brothers who are training for the priesthood. He did his licence in biblical studies in Rome and Jerusalem and his doctorate in Fribourg in Switzerland on the Book of Genesis. He considers the original request by the Order that he study the Bible to be the best thing that ever happened to him.
