Over the years I have shared my “Jog through the Bible” with people. Rather than repeat myself, here is the opening part of the introductory study. If you would like a copy of the entire work, please email me, message me, text me, call me or call the churchy at 661 792-2232.
What is this study about?
We will study the seven major sections of the Bible (Pentateuch—first five books of the Bible; the Historical Books—Judges through Esther; Poetry/Wisdom—Job through Song of Solomon; The Prophets—Major and Minor, based on length; Gospels/Acts; Letters—Paul and others; Revelation.
Each week we will look at a major section using a unifying/integrative interpretive key.
What is an interpretive key?
It is a way of understanding sections and books of the Bible based on a theme that explains the purpose of the books, sections, and entire Bible. It is a key that is in harmony with the Bible, not at odds with it.
What interpretive key is used in this study?
That of the LORD/YAHWEH making Suzerain (total royal) treaties with His people. It begins with the Creation treaty in Genesis 1 and 2 and runs through the last two verses of Revelation (“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.”
Another verse that explains this interpretive key is the phrase, “I will be their God; and they will be my people.” (Ezekiel 37:27; 2 Corinthians 6:16; and elsewhere).
