Christ at the Heart of Scripture

9. When we are converted to Christ, the veil is taken off our heart and also from the Scriptures, not only because we are illumined with spiritual light, but also because we grasp the scope and argument of all of Scripture, namely, the Lord Jesus, with His suffering and benevolent service (2 Corinthians 3:16). For the end of the law is Christ. That alone is the pearl of great price, and when we have found it in this field of the Lord, then we go about our life well satisfied.
