This is an abridged edition of Walking with Jesus through His Word (P&R, 2015).
The Bible’s sixty-six books form one overarching story?the story of a Hero and his heroic missions. And this story is personal, focusing on the relationship of God and his people in the past, present, and future.
On this eye-opening journey through the Old and New Testaments, Dennis Johnson shows how pervasive, recurring themes are always pointing us to Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of all God’s promises and all humanity’s hopes and longings. He shows us how to read on the alert, paying attention to the clues, examining their context, and interpreting them correctly.
The story of Christ is the most important story of all. Meditate on the beautiful unity of God’s redemptive plan, and let your heart be kindled to flame with love for the Lord who came to serve us in love.
