McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Ex 15, Lk 18, Job 33, 2 Co 3

Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. (2 Cor 3:12-18)

Christ is the key to understanding the Bible. Jesus gives us insight into this when he explains to some of his disciples after his resurrection when, beginning with Moses and the prophets, he interprets all the Scriptures the thing concerning himself. We must remember the centrality of Christ in Scripture and in life.
