  1. Sorta.

    We know a posteriori that every passage has to mean the revelation of Jesus Christ in His Person and definitive accomplishment of full and free salvation for all and only His people, and how it applies to them through His uniting them to Himself.

    Every passage means that.

    Of course, each passage means that one thing in a wide variety of particular ways. And we come to know that each passage means this one thing in being enlightened of its particularity.
