The Bible claims to be the Word of God, challenging us with its Divine origin. Five hundred times in the first five books, it prefaces or concludes its declarations with the assertion, “The Lord said,” or “The Lord spake.” Three hundred times again in the following books it does the same. Similar expressions occur not less than twelve hundred times in the prophetic books. The Bible thus claims to be the inspired Word of God (Hebrews 1:1), and it must be judged accordingly.Some allow inspiration for some portions of the Bible, and deny it for others; but obviously, it must either be all true, or all false, for its sixty-six books are indissolubly linked together. We must either accept all, or reject all; and, sooner or later, every person will be forced to decide where he or she stands on this matter.
I invite you to come with me as I commence this most exciting and wonderful story. It is a story that is not yet finished. Its glorious consummation is yet to be manifested in the earth when the Lord Jesus returns to raise his friends from the dead, and give unto them eternal life. He will finally establish God’s Kingdom on earth so that therein Yahweh may be elevated and glorified.
This first volume of our Story of the Bible covers more than 2,500 years of history that stretches from the creation of Adam and Eve to the time when God, through Moses, delivered the Children of Israel from Egyptian slavery and the wrath of Pharaoh, by opening for them a way of escape through the Red Sea.
