The Whole Bible (Luke 24)

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

How much of the Bible is for Christians? About 3/4 of the Bible is what we call the Old Testament, but is that still useful for Christians? YES! The whole Bible is about Jesus. It is popular among some circles to be swayed by Jewish rabbinical interpretation of the OT, and I will admit it is helpful to sometimes listen to differing viewpoints, but at the end of the day, Jesus is the center of the whole Bible. Why would we expect people who don’t believe in Jesus to interpret the Bible correctly? Jesus was constantly amazed that Israel missed the fact that all the Scriptures are about Him. Look for Jesus in the OT, you’ll find Him.
