‘As the deer pants for streams of water so my soul pants for you, O God’. (Psalm 42:1)

The Old Testament says, “Someone is coming.” The Gospels say, “Someone has come.” And the epistles and Revelation say, “Someone is coming again!”

That “someone” is Jesus and if you know where to look, you can find Jesus on every page of the Bible:
