    • Some Implications:
      • We are listening in to a conversation between God and his creation.
      • Before you can know what a Bible passage means for you, you have to know what it meant to someone else.
      • We have to take the context of a Bible passage seriously if we are to understand it.
      • The purpose of the Bible is not to give you wise words to guide your daily life!
    • Creation We are living in a real world
    • Fall Bad things happen to good people
    • Incarnation God is involved in this world
    • Redemption God’s grace changes everything
    • Future Hope It will all work out in the end
    • Jesus Christ is at the centre of it all
    • The Purpose of the Bible: To show us why we need Jesus and to point us to Him.
