The Bible is about Jesus Christ~“Jesus said to them, ‘How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christhave to suffer these things and then enter His glory?’ And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself” (Luke 24:25-27).
Jesus Christ in Ecclesiastes is somewhat similar to Jesus Christ in Proverbs in that He is closely associated with wisdom.In Proverbs Jesus Christ is seen as the wise Son and our source of wisdom.In Ecclesiastes Jesus Christ is seen possessing the wisdom of God and inspiring the application of wisdom.He is the Preacher, the Son of David, and the King of Jerusalem.Most importantly, like Proverbs He is the source of our wisdom—He is our Teacher.
The Book of Ecclesiastes repeatedly asks questions such as:What value is there in our life on earth?Is life really meaningless?The answer to the questions are: It all depends!If our efforts on earth are self-centered working for recognition or pleasure life can quickly lose all meaning.However, life that has meaning is available and only found in God—and that is the reason for Jesus coming to earth.He came to allow us to restore a relationship with God Himself which provides great meaning and purpose to life.
The Apostle Paul told us the Scriptures present many shadows of things to come but the reality is found in Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:17).
