Jesus is the Sum and Substance of the Scriptures

19:25

The most important thing about the Scriptures – the reason we need them above all else – is that they take us to Jesus for salvation. The chief subject of the Scriptures is Christ our Saviour.
He's the One:

  • Through whom the world was made.
  • Who walked in the garden and was promised in the garden.
  • Whom Abraham saw & in whom Abraham rejoiced.
  • Who is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • Who redeemed Israel from the house of bondage.
  • Whom Moses saw face to face.
  • Who gave Israel her inheritance in the Promised Land.
  • Of whom David sang.
  • Whose glory filled the temple.
  • Whom Isaiah saw enthroned in holiness.
  • Who stood with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the Fiery Furnace.
  • Who was born of the Virgin in Bethlehem’s stable.
  • Who lived and obeyed perfectly for us.
  • Who bore our sins in His body on the Tree.
  • Who crushed the serpent’s head and gives His people the victory.
  • Who rose victorious from the Tomb.
  • Who has raised us to newness of life and seated us with Him in the heavenly places.
  • Who will return in glory to judge the living and the dead.
The Bible is all about Christ our Saviour!
