The whole is greater than the sum of all its parts.’
When Christ was on Earth, to the one who is fixiated on Jonah He said of Himself that “A greater than Jonah is here.” And Christ is greater than Jonah because He is greater than all the prophets combined. Of Solomon He said that “a greater than Solomon is here”. And He was greater because Christ was Heir of the promise that Davids Son would be King. Solomon did not fulfill that promise but Christ did. Christ said “In this place a greater than the temple is here”. And we know Christ is the true temple eternal in the heavens constructed with invisible attributes. He is the temple of the living God and proved this by saying “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days” speaking of His body. To the lady at the well who asked “are you greater than our father Jacob who dug this well? He showed that not only was He greater than Jacob, but even the well was a prophecy of Christ who said “if you knew who you were talking to, you would ask I would would give you the waters that well up to everlasting life”.
