Product Description

What connects the whole Bible into one purposeful story?

Dennis Johnson takes readers of the Bible on a journey of discovery through the Old and New Testaments, pointing out a network of trails in the text. These are recurring themes that link different parts of the Bible to Jesus the Christ, the fulfiller of God's promises and redeemer of God's people. Dennis emphasizes how each biblical passage must be read in its close and canonical contexts, revealing the Bible's identity as a book about a relationship - the covenant between God and his people. This helps us to see Christ and his mission as a pattern that emerges naturally throughout the tapestry of Scripture. God embedded in Israel's history events, individuals, institutions, and offices that foreshadowed Christ, his saving work, and his church. Those landmarks point the way to Jesus, who reveals the Father, reconciles us by his sacrifice, and rules us by his Word and Spirit.

Editorial Reviews

"Redemptive-historical hermeneutics has been a major topic among Reformed scholars. What it means is simply that every part of the Bible teaches Christ, and that the most important thing about every passage is what it teaches us about Christ. Many pastors interpret biblical texts this way in their sermons, but they don't always explain to the congregation what they are doing. Dennis Johnson's Meeting Jesus On Every Page explains it well. Johnson shows us how we can read the Bible ourselves in a Christ-centered way, and how this approach enriches our understanding of the Word of God."
"Experiencing Dennis Johnson's instruction first-hand as a seminary student was an enormous privilege. But in this book he has poured his decades of research, teaching, and life into one volume that re-ignites our passion for Bible study. The Bible itself tells us how to read it. Professor Johnson not only believes this, but displays it on every page. For anyone wanting to see how the Bible fits together, this book is a treasure."
