Itís All About Christ

 

Christ is the Key that unlocks the treasure chest of Holy Scripture. It cannot be understood, in whole or in part, without Christ. The Book of God is all about Christ. The Bible, the Word of God, is a Book with one message, and that one message is redemption, righteousness, and eternal life in Christ. The Word of God is not a book about science, but the Book about Christ. It is not a book about morality, but the Book about Christ. It is not a book about history, politics, philosophy, or law. It is not even a book about prophecy, church dogma, or theology. The Scriptures, of course, address all these issues and many others; but that is not what they are about. The Book of God is a HIM-BOOK. It is all about him, the Lord Jesus Christ. The message of Holy Scripture, in its entirety, is the Lord Jesus Christ and him crucified. There is not a page in this Book that does not speak of Christ, not a page (John 5:39; Luke 24:27, 44-47).

 

God gave his holy, inspired Word

For only one great end: --

The prophets and apostles too

Reveal the sinnerís Friend.

 

The prophecies of old record

Godís wondrous, mighty deeds.

Those deeds of power and of grace

Set forth the womanís Seed.

 

The prophets all reveal our Lord,

As Prophet, Priest, and King.

The types that great redemption show

Christís blood and grace now bring

 

The Bible is a Book of Christ.

It only speaks of him.

On every page it shows us Christ.

It only speaks of him.
