Christ Revealed to You

Christ is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit, through Holy Scripture, the Bible. Christ was prophesied in the Old Testament. The prophets spoke of the One who was coming. The New Testament declared He has come. His name is JESUS, who came as the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world, and He is coming again, "looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13).

Christ is revealed to you through the Bible, as a progressive revelation. God spoke in times of old by the prophets who knew in part and prophesied in part (Hebrews 1:1-2). Today, we have the full revelation in Jesus Christ our Lord. He is revealed as the Word of God. "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).

All Scripture points to Jesus Christ, that you may know Him today. There are literally hundreds of types pointing toward Christ in the Old Testament. For example, the Passover Lamb in Exodus points toward Christ our Passover. "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us" (1 Corinthians 5:7).

Jesus Christ is the revelation of Scripture. Many think that the book of Revelation is very hard to understand. However, Jesus is the revelation in the book of Revelation. Read the title of the book: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" (Revelation 1:1). Christ is the revelation in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, through prophecy, typology and fulfillment..
