The Old Testament is full of prophesies about Jesus and the crucifixion. We see this scripture referenced in John 3:14-15 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.. Just like the people who were bitten were saved by looking up in faith, we must also look to Jesus in faith.
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.”
Just like the Israelites looked to the fiery serpent, we need to look to Jesus in faith for salvation. Even in the Old Testament you can find the gospel proclaimed.
