Jesus and the Bible

Todd Miles is a pretty smart guy and someone we can trust, mostly because he used to go to Bethel (my church!) at least that is what someone said in a meeting where I mentioned his name. I think having a PhD and being a theology professor also helps his credibility.

So when Todd says something, we can at least agree his words are worth a hearing. I commend this article to you in that case.

Discussing the Bible and the message of the Bible, Todd concludes that the “Bible is all about Jesus.” Wait, all of it? Yep.

“To their surprise, their new traveling companion called them “foolish” (24:25).  The word sounds harsh, but Jesus was not calling them moronic.  They were “slow of heart to believe all that the prophets had written.” They did not understand the redemptive purposes of God.  Jesus told them that all the events of recent days had been necessary.  The Christ had to suffer “these things.”  Notice verse 27: “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.”

“Beginning with Moses.  All the Prophets.  All the Scriptures.  The Bible is all about Jesus.

“Jesus proved that His death and resurrection were necessary and He did so by working through what we know as the Old Testament.  When the three arrived in Emmaus, the two disciples persuaded their guest to stay with them.  When they sat down to eat, Jesus said the blessing and broke the bread.  It was at that moment that the eyes of the disciples “were opened” and they recognized Jesus.”

Todd goes on to interact with how the Bible is all about Jesus. Check it out here.
