Two editors have released a new version of the Bible in which they have highlighted all the passages in the Old Testament that refer to Christ.
The Blaze reports that Rick Lawrence and Ken Castor came up with the idea for the “Jesus-Centered Bible” from Bibles that print the New Testament words of Christ in red letters.
Working on the Christian belief that Old and New Testaments are intricately linked, Lawrence and Castor decided to highlight all the passages in the Old Testament which refer to Christ in blue letters.
“There’s red letters in the New Testament where Jesus speaks — what if we highlighted in the Old Testament with blue letters any place that points to Jesus or is connected to Jesus in the New Testament?” Lawrence brainstormed.
The two editors worked tirelessly, many times devoting 18 hours a day, to find all the places in the Old Testament that refer to Christ and to add brief descriptions to them.
