The Story of the Bible (Revelation)

We have come to the conclusion of our Story of the Bible series. It has been an amazing journey. We started in Genesis and have worked our way through the entire Bible, pointing out the big and small storylines and how it all connects to Jesus. As we have worked our way through the New…

The Story of the Bible (Hebrews-Jude)

As we finished up the letters of Paul and saw their significance in the storyline of the Bible, we are now going to move into other letters written by people other than Paul. These would be Hebrews, James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1, 2, and 3 John, and Jude. All of these letters help further…

The Story of the Bible (The Gospels of Jesus Christ)

So far in the story of the Bible, we have covered the entire Old Testament. We have discussed Genesis to Malachi and have fit each book into their respective places in the history of the Bible and literary type. The big main storyline is this character who will crush the head of the serpent. The…

The Story of the Bible (Ezra-Esther)

At the end of the last article on prophets, we concluded with the last prophet Malachi and the end of the old testament books. However, there are 3 we have not gone over yet that seem to be out of place, at least, chronologically with where they are located in the old testament. Ezra, Nehemiah,…

The Story of the Bible (Ruth-2 Samuel)

Last time, we talked about Joshua and Judges and the narrative that unfolds in those stories. When we left off, the Israelites seemed to be in the worst position they’ve ever been in. They are not following God and they are doing whatever they want and whatever they see fit. They need that seed of…

The Story of the Bible (Joshua & Judges)

In the first article of our Bible journey, we covered the Torah or the first five books of the Bible. We established the foundation for the story line through Genesis and studied how the law fits in with the story line. We are now going to dive deeper into the narrative starting with Joshua and…
