JESUS CHRIST IS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE SHEWBREAD

ShewbreadMatthew 16:21: “From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.”

Jesus said in John 12:24: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”

Jesus Christ, who is the fulfillment of the Old Testament shewbread, reveals to His disciples (in the above Scriptures) that He was the kernel of wheat that would be ground into fine powder, He would be baked through the many sufferings and intense fiery trials ending in His crucifixion. And, He would rise from the dead to become our living bread.

Nobody wants to eat unbaked bread, and for that matter, bread that is not ground. Therefore, it was necessary for Jesus, who was the fulfillment of the Old Testament shewbread to physically fulfill the exact truth of what the wheat must go through to become bread for the hungry.

As the shewbread, He reveals Himself to His disciples for the third time in John 21:1-14. Jesus is now the living shewbread. He has been resurrected from the dead and is now placed on the table for the whosoever who will believe in Him to freely partake of His resurrected life.

Acts 1:3: “To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.”

These Scriptures regarding His resurrection are so important for they validate His resurrection by many eye-witnesses over a forty-day period. The truth is that Jesus Christ is now what He confessed in John 6:35: “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”

John 6:48: “I am that bread of life.”

John 6:51: “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any many eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh (which was ground to fine flour), which I will give for the life of the world.”

Jesus is our daily bread, more important than the best of our natural breads. Let us eat of Him freely.

Be encouraged.
