The Books of History - Part 1

If the Bible were a golf bag, we’re simply talking about the woods and irons and putters.  Rather than actually playing, by the time we finish, you’ll at least know where to find the clubs!

The Bible has two main sections.  The Old Testament is the story of the nation of Israel.  The New Testament is the story of God coming to earth in the form of Jesus Christ.  That is the central event in all of history; it’s what divides B.C. from A.D.  

The most important single statement in the Bible is that CHRIST ROSE FROM THE DEAD!  The O.T. sets the stage for it.  The N.T. describes it.
