One thought on “The Story of the Bible in One Sentence

  1. G.K. Beale was a bit more verbose than me:

    “The OT storyline appears best to be summarized as: the historical story of
    God who progressively reestablishes his new creational kingdom out of chaos
    over a sinful people by his word and Spirit through promise, covenant, and
    redemption, resulting in worldwide commission to the faithful to extend that
    new creation rule and resulting in judgment for the unfaithful (defeat and
    exile), all of which issues into his glory;

    the NT storyline can be summarized as: Jesus’ life of covenantal obedience,
    trials, judgmental death for sinners, and especially resurrection by the
    Spirit has launched the fulfillment of the eschatological already-and-not-yet
    promised new creation reign, bestowed by grace through faith and resulting in
    worldwide commission to the faithful to extend this new creation rule and
    resulting in judgment for the unfaithful, unto God’s glory.”
