Have you ever struggled to see the big picture of the Bible? How do the individual stories, songs, poems, prophecies, and more, fit together — and what are we to make of it? Rend Collective’s song, “Rescuer (Good News),” reminds me of God’s grand rescue plan.
Join me for a quick fly over that may help you make connections with God’s grand story in the future.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Use outside resources (like the amazing Jesus Storybook Bible)
- Meta-narrative – the overarching story that gives context, meaning, and purpose to all of life
- “The Bible isn’t mainly about you and what you should be doing. It’s about God and what He has done.” – The Jesus Storybook Bible
- How Genesis 1-3 could be the beginning and the end, but God whispers a promise to rescue
- Genesis 6-9 and Noah’s experience with God placing his war bow in the sky pointing to heaven
- A reminder of how we try to reach up to heaven like in the story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11
- The tagline of The Jesus Storybook Bible – Every story whispers His name
- God’s creation of his own family through Abraham and Sarah (we get to join in later!)
- An example of trusting the Father in Genesis 22 with an eye on the Son who would climb a mountain like Isaac to be sacrificed
- Hopping and skipping through the rest of the Old Testament and New Testament revealing the grand story of God
- Ending with Revelation where it’s not the end…it’s the beginning of our forever life after being rescued
