There is no mistaking that geography appears on nearly every page of our Bible. But why is it there? In this session, we will see there is geography in the Bible because the Bible had human authors and because the plan of salvation is a plan linked to place.
When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
- See that the language of human beings is highly influenced by their local geography.
- Affirm that because the Holy Spirit did not prevent the authors and poets of the Bible from speaking as they naturally would, the Bible will of course contain geography.
- Know that because God connects His plan of salvation to place and because the Bible describes that plan of salvation, geography will play a significant role in delivering the message of the Bible.
