I’m writing to you now, but it’s not too tough (so no writer’s block with me at this moment) because I’m just going to make one point and end in a couple of paragraphs. If I were writing a story of some length, I would have to take into consideration what characters, settings, plot, and themes to include.
Last week I asserted that the Bible must have God as its ultimate author because it has statements about the future, and some of those statements have come true. So what are some of those statements? What is the story-line of the Bible?
The plot of the Bible is simply, “A man is coming; that man came, and he is coming again!” The “man” is Jesus the Christ. He came once to die for our sin to satisfy justice and to make it possible for us to be forgiven. That this is clearly the statement of the Old Testament as well as the new is uncontestable. Not only was Christ’s death and resurrection foretold in explicit detail (Psalm 22; Isaiah 53), but even the very date of His eventual death was foretold (Daniel 9:24-26). What remains to be played out in this story is Christ’s second coming, and the way things are aligning in a way consistent with Scripture leads me to think the story is soon coming to its great climax.
