How should we read and interpret the stories of the Old Testament? Many Christians today would answer this question by saying that a person like David is basically presented to us as a moral example. We need to have faith and courage like his if we are to slay the Goliaths in our own lives. But in John 5:39, Jesus reveals that this way of reading the Bible is completely off track. “You search the Scriptures,” he says, “because you think that in them you have eternal life; but it is they that bear witness about me.” On this program, Shane Rosenthal discusses the significance of Jesus’ claim with Dennis Johnson, author of Him We Proclaim and Walking with Jesus Through His Word.
