#16: The focal point of Scripture (with Alan Smith)

I look at Scripture through the lens of Jesus Christ, and the focal point of that lens is Jesus on the Cross. If Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God, then all previous revelations of God are less than ultimate. That doesn’t make Scripture less authoritative or less inspired. But it reminds us that God is inviting us into a story not an encyclopedia.
— Alan Smith

Alan Smith is a deep thinking pastor, writer, and friend of mine from Dallas Fort Worth. Drawing from a range of Christian traditions, we discussed faith, certainty, doubt and Scripture as an unfolding narrative with Jesus Christ as the lens of interpretation.
