As you read the Biblical Overview of Foundation 1 (Foundations Workbook) a big takeaway to think about is understanding the Bible is one big unified story. We’ve been listening to Jani Ortlund on her podcast and she shared a very practical worksheet that helps give an overview of how the Bible is organized as one big story! Check it out here to better understand the Word.
Here are 3 practical takeaways we had from listening:
- “As you read through the Bible, ask yourself, “Now what does this passage show me about the God who provides redemption and the people who need it?”
- “Keep those handouts available, as you’re reading through this year, so that you can figure out, “Oh, this is a prophecy or this is a personal letter,” it will just help you as you read to understand what type of literature you’re reading.”
- “What I want you to see is for you to read your Bible for one half hour a day, six days a week really isn’t that much. It’s three hours out of 168 hours each week. We all have time for Jesus.”
