The Filter of Everything

Upon Jesus converged the whole history of Israel in the past, and from him deployed the whole future of the People of God.

--C. F. D. Moule, Birth of the New Testament, 69-70, quoted in Richard N. Longenecker, Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period, 189

That sentence pretty much sums up what I've been seeing in new ways recently in current reading.
