Christ in All The Bible

 

General References to Christ

Of whom did Christ say the Scriptures testify?

“You diligently study the Scriptures because you think by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me.”  John 5:39.   


Note – “Search the Old Testament Scriptures: for they are they that testify of Christ. To find Him in them is the true and legitimate end of their study. To be able to interpret them as He interpreted them is the best result of all Biblical learning.” – Dean Alford.

Of whom did Moses and the prophet’s write?

“Philip, found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote – Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

John 1:45.

Note – In her translation of the Old Testament Scriptures, Helen Spurrell expressed the following wish for all who should read her translation: May very many exclaim, as the translator has often done when studying numerous passages in the original, I have found the Messiah!”

From those words did Christ say the disciples ought to have learned of His death and resurrection?

He said to them,
“How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Luke 24:25,26.   


How did Christ make it clear to them that the Scriptures testify of Him?

“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in the Scriptures concerning Himself.” Verse 27.  

 

Christ the Seed

 

Where do we find the first promise of a Redeemer?

“So the Lord said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:14, 15.  

In what words was the promise renewed to Abraham?

 

“”And through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.” Genesis 22:18.

To whom did this promised seed refer?

 

“The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scriptures does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ.” Galatians 3:16.     

 

The Angel and the Rock

Whom did God promise to send with Israel to guide them into the Promised Land?

“See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.” Exodus 23:20.

 

Who was the Rock that went with them?

“And drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that Rock was Christ.”  1 Corinthians 10:4. 

 

Birth, Life, Suffering, Death, Resurrection

Who was the Savior to be born?

 

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from old, from ancient times.” Micah 5:2.  

 

In what prophecy are Christ’s life, suffering, and death touchingly foretold?

In the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. 

 

Where is the price of Christ’s betrayal foretold?

”I told them, “If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.” Zechariah 11:12 – Old Testament.

 

And asked, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty silver coins. From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.” Matthew 26:16 – New Testament. 

 

Where in the Psalms are Christ’s dying words recorded?

 

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning.” Psalm 22:1 – “Into your hands, I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth.” Psalm 31:5.

 

How is Christ’s resurrection foretold in the Psalms?

Because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.” Psalm 16:10.

 

Christ’s Second Coming and Kingdom

In what words does Daniel foretell Christ’s receiving His kingdom?

 

“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like the son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.” Daniel 7:13,14. (See also Luke 1:32; 33; 19:11, 12; Revelation 11; 15.) 

 

How is Christ’s second coming described in the Psalms?

“Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages. He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people.” Psalm 50: 3,4. 

 

The Face in the Puzzle Picture

Did you ever see one of those puzzle pictures on which you were told to discover the face of a man, or object? You turned it this way and that, and finally, there you suddenly saw it, just as plain as day, and wondered why you had not seen it before! The great face in the Bible is that of Jesus. He is the supreme object of the Scriptures. “Search the Scriptures…they…testify of me.” John 5:39.

 

Like the scarlet thread that runs through every inch of rope in the British Navy, like the melody of a beautiful song, like the theme of a great masterpiece, so is Jesus in the Scriptures. He is the author and the hero, the beginning and the ending of your Holy Bible.
