The crucifixion was prophecized
St. Justin covers multiple prophecies from the Old Testament that talk of the manner of the messiah’s death and burial (Psalm 3:4, Isaiah 65:2, Isaiah 53:9, Psalm 21:17 (Septuagint)) to prove to Trypho that the scriptures that foretold of the messiah were fulfilled in Christ.
You can hear the echo of St. Peter, "Repent and be baptised for the forgiveness of your sins" in St. Justin Martyr's description of the Church of the First century. The Church pray's and fasts along with the baptismal candidates. #christian #baptism #catholic #ancientfaith
In one of our earliest writings, St. Justin Martyr tells us that the virgin Eve was a Type of the Virgin Mary to come. While Eve brought death, Mary's obedience brought forth life, bearing God himself to free us. #christian #catholic #ancientfaith

St. Justin Martyr gives examples of scriptural stories of the Old Testament which are obscure and difficult to interpret unless you understand that God was using Types and Figures to portray truths. While Justin was speaking to a Jewish philosopher, this is just as true of us.
