What one word best sums up the New Testament?
Perhaps you said “love” or “grace” or “salvation.”
Great answers! But let’s explore further.
Consider the very first verse in the New Testament: “The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1).
Now look at the last verse: “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen” (Revelation 22:21).
He is referred to in all but a handful of the 260 chapters of the New Testament.
He is called Jesus about 975 times, and Christ about 569 times.
He is also called Son of Man, Son of God, Lord, the Lamb, the Word, Teacher, the Nazarene, etc.
Unquestionably, He is the Centerpiece of God’s great plan.
