Jesus in every book of the Bible

A few other folk have posted this onto their blogs, so here it is again. UK readers might squirm a wee bit at the style now and again, but the content is 100% bang on. When I was a small boy, an old man advised me that when reading the Bible, to "look for Christ on every page". When I became a parent I soon realised that, with the ocean of Bible story books that are out there, it's possible to drift into treating much of the Bible as little more than a collection of bedtime stories, with 4 books about Jesus in the middle. The Gospel isn't about believing in God, it's about trusting in Christ. This video is a good starter -

And this is how Jesus presented the (Old Testament part of the) Bible himself: "...And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself..." Luke 24v27
