As we have seen so far that the Bible is God's written revelation of His will to men. It's central theme is salvation through Jesus.

  When you  take a look at the Bible, you will see that it contains 66 books writen by 40 authors, (with each one being inspired by the Holy Spirit to write) and also covering a period of approximately 1600.

   Quoting from the book "What is the Bible All About"

 "It reminds us that God chose a people, the children of Israel, to show forth His truth that He is the one and true God and that He preserved a record of Himself. The Bible tells us of the orgin of sin and how this curse separated man from God. We find the promise of a Savior, One Who was to come to seek and to save that which was lost and give His life a ransom for many. We see all through the ages that one purpose is evident, that of preparing a way for the coming of the Redeemer of the world."

 The Old Testament sets the stage for the coming of the Messiah!

  In the New Testament, Jesus, Himself testifies of Himself. When he met the men after His reurrection on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24. They did not know who He was at that point. Jesus was talking with them and reminded them that "Ought Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory." And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He exppounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.

 He probably told them that:

 In Genesis that He IS our Creator.

In Exodus, He IS our Passover Lamb.

In Leviticus, He IS our sacrifice for sin.

In Leviticus, He IS our lifted-up One.

In Deuteronomy, He IS our true prophet.

In Joshua, He IS the Captain of our salvation.

In Judges and Ruth, He IS our deliverer, judge, and our kinsman redeemer.

In 1st & 2nd Samuel,Kings and Chronicles, He IS our King.

In Ezra and Nehemiah, He IS our restorer.

In Esther, He IS our advocate.

In Job , He IS our Reedemer.

In Psalms, He IS our All in All.

In Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, & Song of Solomon, He IS our wisdom, the end of all living, and the lover of our souls.

In Isaish, He IS our Messiah.

In Jeremiah and Lamentations, He IS the righteous branch.

In Ezekiah, He IS the Son of man.

In Daniel, He IS the Smiting Stone. Rememeber the prophecy in this book about Jesus?

In Hosea, Joel and Amos, He IS the healer of the backslider, restorer, and heavenly husbandman.

In Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah, He IS our Savior, our Resurrection and Life, and a witnesss against rebellious nations.

In Nahum, Habakkuk and Zephaniah, He IS a stronghold in the day of trouble, the God of our salvation and a jealous God.

In Zechariah and Malachi, He IS the desire of all nations, the righteous branch.
