Where On Earth Did the Bible Come From?
From the series It Is Written as part of the Year Of Biblical Literacy.What does it mean to believe that the Bible is a divine word to God’s people? Does it require a belief that the book fell from heaven or that its origins are less than human? In this teaching we’ll explore a crash course on the history of the Bible and why it came into existence. It’s a covenant document, telling the story of how has rescued and redeemed a people, invited them into a covenant relationship, and given them the terms of the covenant relationship. That story all leads to Jesus and the family he invites all humans to join.
