Gods OT Strategy (1)

In his book called “The King Jesus Gospel”, Scot McKnight writes that the New Testament gospel sees Israel’s history comeing to fulfilment in the kingship of Jesus. He does not really develop this theme, but it got me thinking about this question.

If things were mucked up so badly by the fall, and only Jesus could clean up the mess, why did God wait more than four thousand years to send him to earth? What was God up to during the Old Testament period?
During the latter part of the Old Testament age, God worked through Israel, but he knew that they would not cut the mustard. So what was he up to. When I studied the Old Testament to answer this question, I discovered some amazing answers. I will describe these in this series of posts.
