In answering this question, many remember what we learned in catechism classes when we were young; Jesus died for my sins. But what does that mean? How does the death of Jesus have anything to do with my sinful behavior. Perhaps a word picture would help. The Old Testament, in some ways, acts as a kind of “word picture”, setting us up to understand something of greater significance that would soon be on display in human history.
