What is Bible About? What is the Central Message of the Bible?
The Bible was written by over forty authors over about 1,500 years in three languages on three different continents yet has one central message pervading it.
So what then is the overarching theme of the Old Testament and New Testament? The better question is Who is the overarching theme.
Prophesied in Genesis as the one to crush the head of the serpent and continuing up through Revelation as the conquering king, we see that Jesus Christ is the central message of the Bible. He is truly the key to unlocking the Bible. It was God’s plan all along to save the world through Him. 2 Timothy 1:9 captures this perfectly, “For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time–to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.”Author: Kevin Halloran Related Links:
