When viewed carefully, those sections of the Bible are obviously not arbitrarily put together. Instead, they form a meaningful and purposeful whole, as they convey the progressive unfolding of the theme of the Bible in the person of Christ.
The law gives the foundation for Christ
History shows the preparation for Him
In poetry there is an aspiration for Christ
In prophecy an expectation of Him
The Gospels of the New Testament record the historical manifestation of Christ
The Acts relate the propagation of Christ
The Epistles give the interpretation of Him
In Revelation is found the consummation of all things in Christ
