The Story of the Bible: Part One

One of the most remarkable things about the Bible is that, while it is made up of 66 books written by numerous authors in different language over centuries, it nevertheless takes the form of one great overarching narrative or story. If the main plot-line is the redemptive work of God for all creation, within it are many other sub-plots. The focus of biblical theology is to identify, understand and reflect on the significance of that ‘big story’ and how the sub-plots fit within it.

  • Week 1: The ‘big story’ of the Bible
  • Week 2: Creation
  • Week 3: Broken Image
  • Week 4: The Story of Israel
