John 5:39-40 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

Luke 24:44-46 Jesus said to them, This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms. Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day
Jesus tells us in these two passages that the entire Old Testament is about Him. And we also know the entire New Testament is about Him. Therefore, both the entire Bible is about Jesus! Really? Yes. But how can this be when the Old Testament was written between 400 and 1400 BC.? This is only possible if the Bible has a divine author. I believe it does.
For me personally, it was when I saw how the entire Bible pointed to Jesus that I was convinced it is the Word of God and Jesus is the Son of God. What about you? Do you believe the Bible is God’s Word? Do you believe Jesus is God’s Son? Have you ever been shown how Jesus is revealed in every book of the Bible?
Recently I preach on how Jesus is revealed in every book of the Bible. I encourage you to listen to this message at http://www.livinghopeathens.org/category/sermons/ and let me know what you think. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions, I would love to hear them. I am convinced that wisdom begins with a well-asked question, and truth is never afraid of a question.
