The Gospel in the Old Testament: God's Anointed

We tend to think of the gospel as being a New Testament thing, but it is throughout the Old Testament, even from the very beginning. A thousand years before Christ we find that God has appointed a world wide, forever King! That is both marvelous, glorious, and can be scary!

Psalm 2,89:20,89:27,110:1
Acts 4:23-31,13:22-36
Romans 9:5,1:3-4
Ephesians 1:20-23
Philippians 2:9-11
Matthew 28:18-20
1 Corinthians 15:24-26
