This Week's Quote
“Christ is throughout the key to Scripture. He is the one great idea of the Bible. Know Christ, understand God’s thoughts about Him, and then you will understand the Bible. ... Of Him God has given us more than sketches; the Word from end to end is full of Him. In the Word we have a whole Christ presented to us: Christ in His offices; in His character; in His person; Christ in His relations to God and man; Christ in His body the Church; Christ as giving to God all that God required from man; Christ as bringing to man all that man required from God; Christ as seen in this dispensation in suffering; Christ as seen in the next dispensation in glory; Christ as the first and the last; as ‘all and in all’ to His people. The different books are but God’s chapters in which He arranges and illustrates some one or more of these or other aspects of His Beloved.”
(Andrew Jukes, The Law of the Offerings, 1847)
