Jesus in Every Book of the Bible


Henrietta Mears
Many of you asked for the list of Christological themes I used on Palm Sunday, 2013. When I became a Christian in 1968, the first book I read was What's the Bible All About by Henrietta Mears. The greatness of this simple book is that she led me to see Christ on every page of the Bible when I knew very little about the Bible. Since then many have used this author’s themes to illustrate this truth in a plethora of ways. Below is a variation of her work I have developed over the years. I owe Miss Mears, who was 72 when she wrote that book and is now with the Lord, a great debt for her insight for this young believer.

The Priceless Word of God

We must begin afresh to see the love of Christ on every page of every book in the Bible. Christ and the Gospel is the central theme of the Bible. It is the story of redemption, of a kingdom with no end, of a God of grace and mercy. It is the story of a cross, of incarnation, of salvation for a stubborn and rebellious people. It is the story of hope and love and grace and peace for a world fractured by hopelessness, hate, war and division. You cannot miss the story – His story – in every page of this wonderful book.
