The Cross and Its Shadow: Annotated (Paperback)
An in-depth study of the Old Testament tabernacle or sanctuary, "The Cross and It's Shadow" delves into what author Stephen N. Haskell calls "the most wonderful object lesson ever given to mankind." Drawing solely from Scripture, Haskell provides a clear, concise understanding of how the Old Testament sanctuary captures the entire theme of the gospel. Readers will learn each facet of the sanctuary and its services, the different offerings and feasts, and the work of the High Priest, which directly illustrates the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ. As the book so clearly points out, "in the sanctuary, the cross of Christ is the great center of the whole scheme of human redemption. Around it clusters every truth of the Bible."
Scripture references abound in this book, which covers types versus antitypes, the Biblical feasts, the priesthood, Levitical laws and ceremonies, and the use of the urim and thummim to discover God's will. The twelve tribes, the significance of Jacob's son's names, the prophecies of Jacob, and even the 144,000 all come within the purview of this Scripture-based book.
"The Cross and It's Shadow" presents a clear contrast between the earthly sanctuary and the heavenly sanctuary, as well as an enlightening overview of both the daily and annual responsibilities of the priests. Ellen G. White, a contemporary and personal friend of Stephen Haskell's, encouraged him to write this book, which lives up to her endorsement. This book is an absolute must for any Bible student desiring a better understanding of the Old Testament sanctuary and the meaning of the its symbols, ordinances, and services.
