Christ in Every Book

by Pastor James Hayes
South Peoria Baptist Church, Peoria, AZ

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 its 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. Take a journey through the halls of the Bible and in every one of them you will see Christ.
