The Bible is to me the most important book in my life. If it didn’t exist I hardly know something about Jesus in whom God showed us his heart. We ask with Luther: Which scriptures do give a hint to Christ? Which scriptures do express the essence of the christian faith? But that doesn’t mean that only the New Testament is important for the Christians. Oh no! The roots of the christian faith are grounded in the Jewish faith. Therefore it is important to know the scriptures of the Old Testament as well.
I collected here these scriptures which generate the basics of the christian faith. (Volker Schunck)
