Do we have to mention Jesus?

John Koessler’s take on whether every sermon should mention Jesus:

Jesus is not the express focus of every text of Scripture. But all Scripture gives evidence to the truth that is ultimately expressed in the person and work of Christ… When we examine Scripture, we do not look to find Christ in the text. We look at the text through the lens of Christ.

In other words, yes.
