Exploring The Bible
A question for you. Have you ever noticed the first thing a baby does when it is born? It cries! The crying shows that it is alive! Or about when it needs help? It cries, wanting help and attention. A crying baby is symbolic of humanity’s need of God and life with Him! A crying baby also shows how God intervened in humany history – be become one of us! That is what we celebrate at Christmas.
A further question. What is the best way to learn about God and following Him? It is be reading the Bible regularly. Now admittedly, this can lead to confusion. However, help is at hand, and that is the reason for this little series “Exploring the Bible.” Every Sunday we will issue a podcast outlining a book of the Bible – all 66 books – as well as the best way to read and interpret its ancient wisdom.
As Christians, we think that through the Bible, God has spoken to the world because He loves the world. Written over a period of 1,500 years, by people of different nationalities, backgrounds and times, the Bible has a central messsage: God is love. With each podcast, we hope as we work through the Bible together, you will see the development of this love.
After all, it is the story of God and His dealing with humanity. A story of ancient beginnings to new beginnings? Are you read? We start this series next Sunday with the Book of Revelation – going from the end to the beginning – and perhaps we will all gain some new perspective on this ancient story.
