BIBLE VIEW 3
Paul’s letter to Timothy (2Timothy 2:15) :
2 Tim. 2:15
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
Chapter 1 is the chapter about God’s creative power, including the creation of man. You can read about that in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Chapter 2 in the Bible is the story of the fall of man. You can read about that in Genesis 3. Then the third, the last and the largest chapter in the Bible begins at the end of Chapter 3 of Genesis and goes through the rest of the Bible. It is the story of God reaching down and redeeming mankind.
It starts with God choosing a people. He called them Israel-they were the descendants of Abraham. He led Israel through judges, kings, prophets, through captivities, and then finally as Galatians Four says,
4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,
Jesus, the Son of Man and the Son of God, and as prophecy said he would, he delivered man from his sin. We read about that, in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Then beginning with the book of Acts and going through the rest of the New Testament, we find that everybody who comes to Jesus for the saving power of his blood, and is baptized in his name, is added to the Lord’s church.
