JESUS, THE CHRIST IN THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE
The Whole bible is centred on the theme of the story of Jesus Christ from Genesis to Revelation. Christ is The Promised One who would and did bring everlasting life to human kind. It was Divinely written and recorded so that God's created people might trust, understand and believe with their own will in Him.
He is in every sense The Word of God.
God’s redemption plan included His Word, The Bible, as a book of divine influence that would convey the truth of the gospel of Christ down through the years. God intended for His expressions of Scripture to be comprehended and provided the directions and means for understanding it.
The word Bible was formed from a Greek term meaning books in the plural. The Bible is, in fact, the collection of books written by various authors who were chosen and motivated by God. Scripture is The Written Word of God; it is inspired and true.
The idea of the recording of God’s plan of deliverance was not a late addition in the history of salvation but was in the progression of being written more or less from the first. In Christian communities, it is The Bible that possesses final authority. Both from a human and a divine standpoint, the Bible is required to be the instrument of communication of the gospel, conveying the revelation of Christ intact to succeeding generations.
God’s Word refers to Jesus Christ as the incarnate Word of God. Jesus was God in the flesh and He spoke The Words of The Father and His Words have absolute power.
The title Christ gathers all of the Old Testament prophetic hopes with the proper name Jesus. Jesus is the clearest picture of God the world has ever seen. In Jesus Christ are united God's revelation and the meaning of history. Christ is the way to God The Father.
The Bible is the historical reality of what God was doing for humankind through Jesus, God's Christ. Events would come to show the understanding of Jesus, as The Doer of God's Mighty Works.
The purpose of the knowledge about Jesus' pre-existence is to unite Him with God and to what God had been doing. Jesus Christ is the fully divine Son of God who came down from God, who redeems fallen humankind, and who returned to God. God determined, before the foundation of the world, that the salvation of humanity would be accomplished through Jesus, the Lord.
Just as the first coming of Jesus Christ was according to prophecy, so the final coming of Christ is to be by divine promise and prediction. An end to the struggle of good and evil, the battle between the kingdoms of this world which must become the kingdom of our God and of His Messiah. True prophecy is inspired by God and is to be taken note of seriously.
