The Sweet Dropper: Christ is the Scope of Scripture

Christ is the scope of the Scripture.

Christ is the pearl of that ring; Christ is the main, the centre wherein all those lines end. Take away Christ, what remains? Therefore in the whole Scriptures, let us see that we have an eye to Christ; all is nothing but Christ. The mystery of religion is Christ ‘manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit,’ &c., all is but Christ.  -Richard Sibbes in The Fountain Opened
