'THE Person of the Bible'

Jesus is the One to Whom the Bible--Old and New Testaments--points.

Reading the Bible leads us, ultimately, to Jesus. I'm finding that to be true for me again these days as I read the Old Testament book of Leviticus for my personal devotions at night.

Leviticus, which established the system of sacrifice which was, as pointed out by the Jewish-Christian preacher in the New Testament book of Hebrews, a "shadow" of Jesus, "the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world."

Allow yourself to be enlightened by the blazing, brilliant light of the Bible and soon you will fall in love with the Light of the world, the One Who fulfilled and embodied God's long-ago call to Israel to be the light to the nations: Jesus, God-enfleshed, the Messiah, the Lord of heaven and earth!

Check out today's Our Daily Bread devotion, The Person of the Bible, based on John 5:31-40. [Note: Jesus is the speaker in that passage of Scripture.]
