Origen believed that the entire Bible was a book about Christ. He asked the questions of a text that the scholars of all ancient Greek texts of his day asked. However, his assumptions about the biblical text, and the way he put the questions allowed him to uncover Christ in the text. He believed that this Christcentered approach to the Bible was derived from Jesus himself. The ultimate goal of this way of reading the Bible was to form a Christ-like person.
