            Layman's Guide to Bible Overview - Part 1

  ""In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth."            
                         Genesis 1:1

   "And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us, at the
beginning."  
      
                         Acts 11:15             




 Moving away from our normal format, site visitors will notice a different tack being taken with our next five home page articles.This is because we want to use these next five months for a instruction period. By instruction period, we mean to explain our approach to the Bible and the study of it.


First, we believe the Bible is divided into five sections or parts, much like a five part play or novel. We also take a strong, dispensational view combined with historical, chronological and literary considerations. Our goal is to see and understand the Bible as a single unit. Further, we think the Bible is a very simple book but not to miss the point that it is, after all, A BOOK! It has a beginning, a plot or story, a climax, a denouemente'(untying) and a real, logical ending. This is why reading the Bible from beginning to end is paramount for our comprehension of it. If we don't read ALL of the Bible, we are left with the parts of our choosing. The definition of heresy is TO CHOOSE. A friend invited me to a Bible study held locally. I asked what their approach was to Genesis 1-11? He said that,... Oh, they just skip over that!!!


This month we want to feature the first section: the Beginning, which runs from Gen.1:1 to Genesis 3:7  The Beginning is used by the author to do three basic things: Set the Scene, Introduce the Characters and Establish the Conflict. The Scene is planet earth, with a few vignettes taking place in heaven and hell. The Characters are GOD, mankind and angels with angels being divided into two lines or hierarchies. The Conflict is the commission of Sin by a willful act of disobedience.
Our first quote tells it as plainly as possible. The GOD of the Bible is the Creator of all we can observe and know. Time, Space and Matter all began, in our understanding, at this moment of Creation. Uniquely, these three basic categories are complete and a fourth cannot be added. Only GOD could do this. It is noteworthy that each of these basic subject areas can be divided by three again. Time: past, present and future, Space: length, width and height, Matter: gas, liquid and solid. This is also true of color, motion and any number of creation characteristics with no one naming a fourth in ANY category. Hence, we have a wonderful picture of our Creator, the Trinity, without a word being said. The book 'The Long War Against GOD by Dr. Henry Morris is especially helpful regarding this subject. 


The second quote shows the significance of the word Beginning. In context, this verse in Acts refers to the Beginning of the Church at Pentecost, the church being the visible witness of the LORD JESUS on the earth today. The church also has its own set of markers which we will discuss in future. Moreover, the word Beginning can only mean one thing. Wild and foolish questions can and have been been raised about these early verses of scripture. In both cases those that fall over this stumbling block are misguided in their thinking and need to study further at Christian ministry sites such as: www.icr.org or www.AnswersInGenesis.org.


Next month:  The Story or Plot
