We tend to read the bible through the lens of self. It’s little more than a book of tips and tricks for a better and more moral life. The bible isn’t fundamentally about the christian, it’s about Jesus. Everything we read, in the old and new testament, is meant to be read through the lens of Christ. All scripture speaks to Him and points us directly to the author and finisher of our faith.
In our introduction to this series, we talk about Jesus’ interaction with a couple of His followers on the Road to Emmaus, where He teaches them how to read the bible.
