Don Stewart

Yes, from the testimony Jesus Himself the entire Scripture is about Him. He said.

You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of me . . . For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me (John 5:39,46).

Old Testament - The Preparation For The Christ

The Old Testament was preparing the way for the Messiah. Isaiah wrote:

A voice is calling, "Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness; make smooth in the desert a highway for our God" (Isaiah 40:3).

The entire Old Testament was looking forward to the coming of the Messiah. Everything was pointing toward Him.

The Gospels - The Manifestation Of The Christ

The Gospels record the manifestation of the long-awaited Messiah.

The next day he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29).

Jesus, the Messiah, arrived as predicted.

Acts - The Propagation Of The Message Of The Christ

After the death and resurrection of Jesus, His message was to go out to the entire world. The Book of Acts records the propagation of the message of Christ. The key verse of the Book of Acts records the following words of Jesus.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth (Acts 1:8).

New Testament Letters - The Explanation Of The Two Comings Of Christ

The two comings of Christ are explained in the New Testament letters.

To whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).

Christ's first coming was a "mystery" or "sacred secret" that was not explained to the Old Testament reader. The New Testament letters provide us with the explanation.

Revelation - The Consummation Of All Things In Christ

Finally, all things will be consummated at the Second Coming of Christ.

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over him. Even so. Amen (Revelation 1:7).


The Old Testament records the preparation for the Christ. The Gospels record the manifestation of the Christ. The Book of Acts gives us the propagation of the message of the Christ. The New Testament letters provide the explanation of the two comings of Christ. The Book of Revelation documents the consummation of all things in Christ. Therefore the entire Bible is truly about Him.
