Jesus and the Old Testament Story (Quote)

“[T]he Old Testament is much more than a promise book full of blessed predictions about Jesus.  It is primarily a story – the story of the acts of God in human history out of which those promises arose and in relation to which only they make sense.  If we think of the Old Testament only in terms of promises that are fulfilled we may fall into the trap of regarding the content … as of little value in itself.”  (Christopher J. H. Wright, Knowing Jesus Through The Old Testament, p. 27)
