In this section, you will discover the reasons for this study and some assumptions Troy and Brian make throughout the study. We all come to the Bible with preconceived ideas.
The beginning of the Bible explains how the entire plan of God exists to offer human beings life. There is no life apart from God. Begin to dive into all of Scripture with John 14:6 in mind.
The Bible continues in the writings of Moses to explain how God offers human beings life through a relationship with Him.
The Book of Joshua chronicles more of the History of Israel and expands on the way of living that God prescribes which is rooted in Truth that He provides.
Our lives do not go as planned. David’s life did not go as planned. In the midst of sin and errors, God still offers us a way to have life provided by Him.
The idea of “The Remnant” is a huge idea historically and theologically in the Old and New Testaments. The Remnant are those who follow God and have invested their life in the Way He prescribes.
Every prophet that God sent over the generations expresses the faithfulness of God for His people over and over. God continues to offer a way of life rooted in truth that results in life for His followers. God offers this over and over through His prophets.
With the advent of Jesus Christ, a whole Kingdom of God is ushered into the world where life in God is possible. It is only possible by way of the Messiah… Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ sheds light on the manner God wants His followers to live. Jesus Christ exposes the Kingdom of God and the truth about God’s offer of life for everyone to see.
The Book of Acts is a historical book which chronicles the rise and spread of Christianity. It also shares with us that the way of life taught by Jesus was practiced by His followers after His Ascension.
The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Church in Rome is heavy with theology and practical matters about Christianity. The kind of life Jesus Christ offers is rooted in the atonement He offers through His death, burial, and resurrection.
Life is given freely through Jesus Christ. This is not a gimmick, but rather a whole way of living rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul expands and practically applies the truth Jesus taught.
Make no mistake, God’s offer of life is a serious one. The type of life that God offers is not physical life, but life of the soul. Jesus Christ offers atonement for souls and that life is rooted in the way of truth He taught and lived.
The Apostle John walked and talked with Jesus Christ on a very personal level. As a result, John expresses well the kind of life that Jesus Christ is offering and it is a serious offer for each and every person.
