One Central Theme to the Bible

The Bible is an anthology, or collection of books, written over a 1,600-year span on three different continents in three different languages by over 40 authors from every walk of life including kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, poets, statesmen, scholars, etc.

This is the first of four weeks to show the centrality, or unity, of the Bible

There is one central theme to the Bible.

Paul writes to Timothy the following words in 2 Timothy 3:14-15: “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 

After Adam and Eve sinned, God taught them the concept of sacrifice. He demonstrated deliverance through Noah. He promised Abraham that all the peoples on earth would be blessed through him.

Throughout the Old Testament we read God’s promises of salvation, we see pictures of how God saves His people, and we watch as predictions come true to validate the prophecies of the coming Messiah.

When John the Baptist saw Jesus approaching, he declared: “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29)

In John 12:47, Jesus states: “For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.”

While preaching in Acts 4, Peter says: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Everything from Genesis to Revelation points toward the redemptive work of Christ.
