Christ Throughout the Bible

I can’t remember exactly when the last time I went to Soul Survivor was. It was sometime in the late 90’s. I only remember 2 things about the event – firstly that I was there with Michelle. Secondly, that the main speaker that week was Louie Giglio. We’d never heard of him before, but each day his Bible teaching totally blew our socks off.

However, for both myself and Michelle, our strongest memory of that week was the last sung worship session after Loiue’s final message. During one of the songs, Louie came back on stage and in a moment of Holy Spirit inspiration he walked us through the whole Bible, showing us Jesus in every single book, exalting Him as the central figure of Scripture. The One who it’s all about.

I recently found a transcript of Loiue’s rant online and thought I’d post it here
