The common view of the Bible is that it was given by God to show people how to live right. Some (including myself) have said that it is a “users manual for life.” However, the more I read the Bible, the more I am convinced that its purpose is not to show me how to live right, but to show me that I can’t live right—and that I need a Savior. I need someone who “lived right” in my place. Not Abraham, Moses, David, Peter or Paul. The Bible shows them as flawed, needy sinners just like me. They are not the heroes of the Bible. Jesus is. The perfectly obedience Son who lived for me, died for me and rose for me. He is hero.
