“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself”
The Scriptures were designed and given to reveal Jesus Christ and God’s plan of Salvation to mankind. A poor understanding of the purpose of the scripture leads to abuse (abnormal use), manipulation, and malpractices. On the road of Emmaus, Jesus took his time to explain the Scriptures to Cleopas and His friend –helping them see that He was the one the Scriptures were pointing to. The Scriptures are not there to be merely quoted but to be explained in the light of Christ FOR they speak concerning Him!
