Jesus in Every Book of the Bible (Author Unknown) In Genesis, Jesus Christ is the seed of the woman. In Exodus, He is the passover lamb. In Leviticus, He is our high priest. In Numbers, He is the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. In Deuteronomy, He is the prophet like unto Moses.

In Joshua, He is the captain of our salvation. Years ago there was a beloved Christian preacher and publisher named Henry Clay Trumbull who wrote an entire book about this.
