Sherrill, Elizabeth & John
The Old Testament gives us several names or titles for God. For instance, God is called Jehevah-Tsidkenu, the LORD our righteousness. In this insightful book, John Macfarlane demonstrates how these Old Testament names of God are best expressed and fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Concerning God as our righteousness, Macfarlane shows how Jesus provides the necessary righteousness for guilty sinners to stand acceptable before a Holy God. Other names of God treated are Jehovah-Jireh (the LORD will provide), Jehovah-Rophi (the LORD my healer), Jehovah-Shalom (the LORD our peace), Jehovah-Nissi (the LORD my banner), and Jehovah-Shammah (the LORD is there). In treating these titles of God, Macfarlane opens up the way of salvation, exhibiting Christ as the safe hiding place of sin-weary souls.
