THE GRAND DRAMA: DISCOVERING THE WHOLE STORY OF THE BIBLE AS OUR OWN ADVENTURE WITH GOD

WEDNESDAYS For Four Weeks August 9th-30th
7:00-9:15pm
Instructor: Glen Taylor

Have you struggled to ever read the whole Bible? Do you feel you need to know how all the different “Books” within the Bible fit into the whole story? Here’s your chance to change that.

The Bible is a dynamic, adventuresome, and life giving book. The captivating power of its story draws us into it in radically surprising ways. In this class we will survey each book of the Bible—from Genesis to Revelation—and see how the Kingdom story develops throughout. Tracking the storyline in the Old Testament will help our reading of the New Testament to blossom in startling ways we’ve not seen before. We will discover the adventure that awaits us as we find our unique place in the story and continue its story today.

There are five major plot themes that we will identify in each book that make the mystery of the Bible’s grand drama come alive for us. These themes focus on the development of:

1.     God’s kingship and the ways he relentlessly breaks into our world

2.     The cosmic conflict in the spiritual and human realms

3.     God’s mission to subvert the chaos unleashed in the universe

4.     The people of God (us) as those who God uses to carry out his dynamic mission in the world and

5.     The glory of God, in which we see and understand now in glimpses and shadows, but in the climax and resolution of the Bible’s Story will be dramatically unleashed and unveiled.
