Is the Bible basically about us or about Jesus?
Perhaps both, but in different ways.
Jesus is the subject of the Bible, and we are the object.
"Here is a trustworthy saying..'Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners'--and I am the worst of them all." (NLT)
As Philip Cary summarises Luther's teaching on the Gospel, the Bible is:
- A story
- about Christ
- for us
