In the last few decades, preaching has become very shallow and deficient. The Old preachers showed us grand and lofty views of Jesus throughout the Bible.
So, we have a one point agenda, to show forth Jesus Christ across the Bible. After Jesus rose from the dead, he appeared to the disciples on the road to Emmaus. He opens the scriptures and explains the Cross and the Resurrection, from various books in the Old Testament.
“Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:25-27.
“The Bible is the portrait of Jesus Christ, It is the Prism by which the light of Jesus Christ is broken into its many and beautiful colors.” – John Stott (Understanding the Bible)
The early Church preached Christ from the Old Testament. Look at the sermons of Paul, Peter, John etc. Even Jesus used the scriptures (Old Testament) to talk about himself and his mission. We also need to do the same.
To see Jesus in all His glory, you need to know these Four views (aspects) of Jesus Christ.
Only when these 4 aspects of Jesus are preached, then the picture of Jesus is complete and true. Each of these 4 views are explained a bit more in separate sections on the website. Christ the Creator is clubbed along with NT & Church age section.
All the men of God that impacted the society through the ages, have preached the full view of Christ. You can read these truths in the writings of Martin Luther, J.S.Bach, George F Handel, Mathew Henry, John Gill, C.H.Spurgeon, Charles Finney, John Wesley and Charles Wesley, William J Seymour, Fanny Crosby etc, and in our times in the sermons of Billy Graham, Oral Roberts etc.
Who doesn’t recall the classic Oral Roberts video : The Fourth man.
