You Mean the Bible Isn’t About Me?

Yes, Virginia, there is a unifying story in Scripture, and no, it’s not how you can conquer the Goliaths in your life. The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Christ. No, it doesn’t flatten out the story. It doesn’t mean that every sermon is the same. As R. B. Kuiper used to say, ministers are called to preach “the text, the whole text, and nothing but the text.” All those particular texts, however, are unified by a plot. At the center of that unity, is Christ, not the reader of the text.
