The Replay of John 5:39, 46

All Scripture testifies to Christ.  He is the culmination of all history, the center of revelation.  Everything points to him and to read the OT as a moral story about ethical demands is to fail to grasp its full meaning.  To read it as a history book inevitably causes one to miss the One to whom it points and to read it as a psychology talks about our desires and fears but presents no overarching solution to them.  The only truly biblical way to read the OT is as a pointer to Christ just as the only good way to read the NT is by asking the question, “How does this passage expand our view of the gospel message?”
