The great discovery is that the Bible is a message system: it's not simply 66 books penned by 40 authors over thousands of years, the Bible is an integrated whole which bears evidence of supernatural engineering in every detail.
The Jewish rabbis have a quaint way of expressing this very idea: they say that they will not understand the Scriptures until the Messiah comes.

In traditional Judaism, the 'Geulah' is the time of Redemption brought by Mashiach (Messiah), when the world will be filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the ocean bed.
It is said that when Messiah ushers in the Geulah, everywhere you look you will see God's holiness.
“Cry loudly, do not hold back;
Raise your voice like a trumpet,
And declare to My people their transgression

– 1 Timothy 2:3-5
