Christ the Centre of All Scripture

Acts 10:43, To [Jesus] all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His name.

Therefore, in order to fathom all the Scriptures, the reader must put Christ at the centre of it all. If he does not, he will be led into confusion and eventual despair, for he does not see Christ as central to all the Scriptures whom they testify about. All the prophets testified about Him: Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Habakkuk, Amos, Malachi, and so on. Peoples and events have been typologies of Christ—foreshadows of the forgiveness of sins through Christ and His final sacrifice once for all (Romans 6:10; 1 Peter 3:18). Because there is only one God, there is only one way, and that is through Jesus Christ (John 14:6cf. Romans 3:29-30). There is only one name under which we can be saved: Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). Not Mahatma Gandhi, not Brahma, not Vishnu, not Shiva, not Allah, not Buddha, not your favourite celebrity or politician, not even yourself, but Jesus Christ the Son of God. Trust in any other name or thing that is not Jesus Christ leads only to damnation.
