Overview and Objectives
You may be familiar with many of the stories found in Bible, but what about the story of the Bible? How can we zoom back to see the larger story God is communicating to us through His Word? In this first lesson, that’s exactly what we will set out to do. President of Denver Seminary, Dr. Mark Young, will lead us on this journey, where we will learn to see the themes that begin in Genesis and weave through Scripture to the book of Revelation.
When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
- Explain the purpose of this course.
- Understand the idea of viewing the Bible as a story.
- Describe how looking at the Bible as a story can help you understand what God is communicating through His Word.
- Identify God’s mission.
- Provide a basic explanation for the role God’s people play in His mission.
As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
What if by understanding the story of the Bible, we might come to understand the big story of our own lives and our own purpose?
