The Bible Tells One Story

“The Bible tells one story. It is a long and complicated story about events that took place over several thousand years, but even so it is one story. Like most stories the most exciting and important parts come toward the end. In this case, the most important part comes when Jesus is born, lives, dies on the cross, rises again, and ascends to heaven. But to know why Jesus comes and what He is doing when He dies and rises again, we need to know the story that goes before…A beginning is nothing without an ending, but an ending without a beginning isn’t worth much either. To tell the story of Jesus, we need to start with Genesis…”
