Keller on Christ in all of Scripture

More sermons for you. Tim Keller at the Reform & Resurge Conference 2006:

Is the Bible basically about you and what you need to do, or is it basically about Jesus and His salvation? Which is it?

For example, when you’re preaching about David and Goliath, what is it basically about? Is it basically about ‘the bigger they come, the harder they fall;’ ‘if you have faith, you can move mountains;’ ‘God and you can handle anything;’ ‘you can face the giants in your life’? That’s the way it’s usually preached – in which case, it’s basically about you.

But, now, if you come with a bias that says every theme, every single theme, eventually comes out in Jesus Christ. You can trace all the threads, whether it’s the thread of the temple, or the covenant, or the hero, or every prophet or every priest or every king – every thread, if you run all the way through the Bible, in the end, is Jesus.

We would do well to digest that kind of Christ-centered theology.
