The Bible is a story about God revealing Himself to man through His relationship with Israel. This magnificent story of propositional truth gives us multiple perspectives from multiple authors in multiple points in history, all detailing the greatness of our God. The good book tells us about God, how to live, and how to have an intimate and personal relationship with God. Jesus’ death burial and resurrection is the way to that relationship. It is a deeply personal story, craving devotion, faithfulness and worship, for He is enough. The unfolding of God’s relationship of Israel spans both testaments, each essential to the other and equally authoritative. The church, a humble and secondary character, will one day enjoy the full blessings of God as both Jews and Gentiles receive mercy. The Bible is essential if we are to know Him, our true God and Lord. And in the end….God wins!
