About the Bible...
« on: November 28, 2010, 09:55:36 PM »
So everything in the OT is about Christ, and the whole Bible itself should be in context of Christ.

Like when God is ruling over the water also points to when Jesus will walk over the water showing His rule. Jonah being in the Whale for 3 days, like Christ was in the tomb for 3 days. Etc etc.

So the Bible is not a Scientific book nor is mythological, but rather about Christ. Am I wrong?

No!  :D Very much right.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

So the 3 days in the Fish, Noah at sea for 40 days (God baptizing the earth), how much more parelles can we derive from the OT? Can we derive all of it which points to Christ?

I believe the OSB (orthodox study bible) has alot of good commentary in the OT which is very Christocentric. It may be worth picking up a copy if you're interested in this.

You will find that there is no mention in the bible about 'literal' interpretations. (I know you may not have asked that, but I thought I would mention).

I've asked the question: Please show scriptural support for bible literalism, and no one could provide it. Because it doesn't exist.

"Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written."

I imagine you would probably find it in one of those books (if they existed).

Here's Luke 24:27 (NKJV): "And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself."

Look at Jesus' teachings of the Sabbath in Matthew 12 and Mark 2; His teachings of the Resurrection in Matthew 22 and Mark 12.

Also, do a search in the Gospels for "But I say". You'll find other examples.

Forgot about that one, thanks! <thumbsup>
