These sketches are intended to supplement your reading of each book of the Bible (rather than as a substitute for reading the Bible text). Links within the sketch provide access to Bible text. In most cases, the text of the book under study will display in the lower left window, while supplemental references will display in the lower right window.
In the last book of the Bible, we are told that ''the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy'' (Rev. 19:10). And having been told, we begin to understand that Christ is the central theme of Scripture. Jesus Himself said that the major authors (and characters) of Scripture spoke of Him (cp. Joh 5:46; 8:56; Mat 22:45), and that the Scriptures would reveal Him to the seeking heart (Joh 5:39; Luke 24:27). Therefore, these sketches will briefly trace His presence in each Old Testament book.
