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[1]
