THE FACE IN THE PUZZLE PICTURE
Did you ever see one of those puzzle pictures on which you were told to discover the face of a man, or some object? You turned it this way and that, and finally, there you suddenly saw it, just as plain as day, and wondered why you had not seen it before! The great face in the Bible is that of Jesus. He is the supreme object of the Scriptures. "Search the scriptures; . . . they . . . testify of Me." John 5:39. Like the scarlet thread that runs through every inch of rope in the British navy, like the melody of a beautiful song, like the theme of a great masterpiece, so is Jesus in the Scriptures. He is the author and the hero, the beginning and the ending of your Holy Bible
