Christ B.C

After resurrection, when two disciples were walking to Emmaus not knowing that Jesus had risen. Jesus joins them on the road and starts a conversation.He asks them the reason for their sadness and they tell that He is dead. :)

And Jesus calls them foolish and slow of heart. Then he explains the whole scriptures to them.

And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in ALL the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. - Luke 24: 27

In other words, Jesus wanted them to understand that the whole scriptures (the old testament was about Him). The reason they were sad is that they did not understand the scripture in the light of Jesus. 

And in verse 44, he says all that was written in Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me are fulfilled. That's how Jesus taught his disciples to read the bible. The key to open the old testament was Jesus. 

In John 5:39, Jesus says, all scriptures point to ME. 

Before Jesus entered this earth as a human, he was already there. Christ was there B.C (Before Christ). :) 

Not only some part of the bible but the whole bible is about Jesus.

Try studying the old testament in the light of Jesus and you would make the connections and know Him more. and may be your hearts would start to burn as you learn.
