Want to know and live the Story of God better? Here are some of my FAVORITE resources to help people do both!
The Story of the Bible
The Overview of the Old Testament
The Overview of the New Testament
- Psalm 103-107 for a GREAT overview of the OT Story
- Luke 24 where Jesus makes it a PRIORITY after his resurrection to teach his disciples how to read the Scriptures IN LIGHT of his life, death and resurrection!
- Acts 2:14-47 where Peter connects the pouring out of the Holy Spirit as a result of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
- Acts 7 where Stephen (the first martyr) recounts Israel’s story in light of Jesus
The Story-Formed Way
The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses
That should be plenty to get you started! Don’t get overwhelmed, start with one resource and then reflect, record your thoughts in a journal and respond to the great story of God. All of this is BEST DONE IN COMMUNITY! Invite some friends (either believers or those interested in Jesus) to go through some of these resources with you! Jesus is still writing his story through you and me as we join his mission in the world.
