a study designed to help you trace the unifying, overarching story of the Bible and to help you find your own place in God’s unfolding story

What is this study all about?

For both Christians and non‑Christians, reading the Bible can be an intimidating task. Some of the primary difficulties with reading the Bible—beyond barriers such as language, culture, and time—are in seeing how the Bible fits together into a unified whole and in sensing how this unfolding story relates to our own story as human beings. The Story of Scripture Bible study is an inductive study of the overarching storyline of the Bible that is designed to help you better understand three important questions.

  • What is the Bible?
  • What is the Bible about?
  • How can I be a better reader of the Bible?

The Story of Scripture Bible study guides readers inductively through the story of Scripture from its opening chapters in Genesis about creation and humanity’s fall all the way through to its closing chapters in Revelation where God once again dwells in perfect harmony with redeemed humanity in the new creation.
