The Second Eclectic

Technology changes how we relate to God and each other

It's sort of like "Where's Waldo?"

Christians believe the Bible is all about Jesus, the very expression of God himself. Thus if the Bible is God’s Word (another expression), it would make sense that we could find Jesus throughout the Bible.

Robert J. Wells famously traced at least one picture of Jesus in every book of the Bible. Here’s what he wrote:

“Christ is the theme of the entire Revelation of God. He is promised in Genesis, revealed in the Law, prefigured in its history, praised in poetry, proclaimed in its prophecy, provided in its Gospels, proved in its Acts, preeminent in its Epistles and prevailing in Revelation.

He is seen in every book of the Bible. . . .

 

Starting with Genesis He is the Seed of the woman;
in Exodus the Lamb for sinners slain;
in Leviticus, our High Priest;
in Numbers the Star of Jacob and the Brazen Serpent;
in Deuteronomy the Prophet like unto Moses and the Great Rock;
in Joshua the Captain of the Lord's Hosts;
in Judges the Messenger of Jehovah;
in Ruth our Kinsman-Redeemer and the Faithful Bridegroom;
in 1 Samuel He is seen as the Great Judge; in 2 Samuel as the Princely King;
in 1 Kings as David's Choice ;
in 2 Kings as the Holiest of All;
in 1 Chronicles as King by birth;
in 2 Chronicles as King by Judgment.

 

In Ezra He is seen as Lord of heaven and earth;

in Psalms the Son of God and the Good Shepherd;

In Isaiah He is the suffering and glorified Servant;

in Habakkuk, the Lord in His Holy Temple;
in Zephaniah the Merciful Christ;
in Haggai, the Desire of all nations;

and in Malachi, the Sun of Righteousness with healing in His wings.
