Forest in the Trees

Forest in the Trees

What is the message of the Bible?  What is the connection between all the seemingly disparate pieces?  Are there consistent themes that run through the whole Bible?  When we read an individual passage it is easy to do so while missing the larger themes of love, rescue, justice, and covenant.  It is easy to miss the forest for the tree.  For six weeks we will take a quick overview of the Bible to discover the redemptive themes God has always and will always speak to humanity.

New Creation

Jeff Hancock
Sunday 16 November 2014
The rescue that God has long promised came in the person of Jesus Christ.   His life, death, and resurrection are God’s response to the problem of evil in the world.   The victory of Jesus is something we get to taste today but its final consummation is still to come.   Do the words of Revelation which point to this consummation have anything to say to us today?  The short answer is yes!  Revelation is filled with words to encourage, challenge, and inspire the Church of all ages.

The Church

Jack LoMonaco
Sunday 09 November 2014
God displays his incomparable wisdom in unlikely places – like at the Cross and in the church. When one grasps that we are the Body of Christ, you come to see the church in a whole new light. A universal Church was born out of the ministry of Jesus, and this Church is empowered to be His witnesses to the world, a “nation of priests” who lead others into His arms.

Jesus

Jeff Hancock

Jesus is the center of everything.  And the Bible has been leading us to Him as He comes to do what God promised to Adam and Eve.   Jesus comes as the full picture of God and gives Himself on the cross to finally give evil the death blow.   He begins God’s kingdom-  a kingdom that is already here and not yet fully realized.  Jesus is the answer to the needs of humanity and is the triumph of God’s great plan of rescue

Israel Part 2

Jeff Hancock
Sunday 26 October 2014
As we saw last week, in Israel we find a people that God chose to inhabit so that they might be a blessing to the world.   The choice was based not on their merit but on God’s character.  As their history unfolds we find them becoming a nation like the others around them.   They come to a crossroads where they must decide who they will trust- God or an earthly king.   Though their trust in a king is misplaced it points us towards their longing for a leader and protector.  A longing that is only finally realized in Jesus as He leads the whole world back to God’s original call.

Israel Part 1

Jeff Hancock
Sunday 19 October 2014
Last week we looked to the beginning of our story and saw a God of majesty and might create a universe of beauty- and create a people in His image.  His intent is for humanity to be in perfect relationship with Him and to live out His image.  But there was a break in that relationship-  and now the action of God is towards restoration.  He chooses a people, Israel, to carry His name.   He calls them once again back to His image  and establishes a relationship with them held together by His promises.

Creation

Jeff Hancock
Sunday 12 October 2014
The story of us all begins with nothing.   But God wanted something and so He spoke it into existence.   He spoke the universe and all that is in it into existence.  That means that everything (and everyone) that exists does so because God wants it to be so.  And so we discover that our story begins with desire-  the desire of God for us.   That desire was opposed by the rebellion of humanity-  but from the garden God began making a way to restore us to Him in relationship.
