"City of God" XVII.4

Chapter 4:
As an example of everything Augustine has been saying about how promises in the OT apply to Christians, he notes Hannah's prayer, which is both for herself and an expression of her time, and an articulation of the relationship between Christ and the church that would be. Line-by-line Augustine shows how each thing she says foreshadows Christ and is demonstrably fulfilled in His person and work.
