The Bible Testifies to Christ’s Coming
Many question the purpose of the Bible, with some using it for moral lessons and others for historical understanding. Jesus Christ clarified its intent, emphasizing that the Scriptures testify about Him, the Savior who gives eternal life.
“These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”
“Me” in the verses above refers to Jesus. “The Scriptures” refers to the Old Testament, the only part of the Bible that existed at that time. In other words, the purpose of the Bible is to teach us about our Savior. Even Christ set the example of using the Scriptures to testify about Himself:
To restore faith to disciples who came to doubt that Jesus was the Christ, He showed them the Old Testament prophesies He fulfilled rather than performing miracles. The disciples and apostles after Christ did the same thing (Ac 17:2–3, Ac 8:35). Why? Because the Bible serves as the key tool to comprehend and recognize our Savior.
Now, “the Scriptures” mean more than just the Old Testament—we also have the New Testament. Only by studying the Old Testament and the New Testament can we understand why Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Second Coming Christ.
