3GT Episode 275: The Shadow of Christ in Lamentations with Dr. C.J. Williams

Barry and Kyle are still searching for Scott, who is wandering somewhere out there in the political landscape. If they cannot find him, they may have to start having tryouts for a new parishioner. But in the meantime, they still put the 3 in 3GT as they are joined by RPTS Professor of Old Testament Studies, C.J. Williams, as he discusses his new book The Shadow of Christ in the Book of Lamentations.

Dr. Williams shares with the guys his purpose in his emerging series on the topic of seeing Christ in the Old Testament. He discloses why he chose first Job and now Lamentations, and why these books are important for Christians walking through the suffering of this present age. From there, he reminds listeners of the context of the Book of Lamentations and how its author, Jeremiah, is a fitting type of Christ in the Old Testament. He then goes on to give insights in how to see Christ in this book of sorrows. He concludes the episode sharing how his immersion in this book prepared him for painful events in his own life.

You will want to listen to this insightful interview as you learn how Christ weeps for His people. In the meantime, you can also learn how you could receive a free copy of this book. So tune into another edifying episode of Three Guys Theologizing and consider why you should study Lamentations with this volume in hand!
