In Revelation 4 and 5, we see the throne of a transcendent God. And between the throne is the Lamb, once slain (crucified) and now standing (resurrected). He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Root of David; the heavens and the universe serenade Him for He alone is worthy to open the scroll--a symbol of God’s purposes for history--revealing and accomplishing all of God’s decrees. Sisters, the world is not spinning aimlessly. God is fulfilling His purposes...and He’s doing so through a worthy Lamb.
The Bible is no ordinary book--66 books written by 40 different authors spanning the course of some 2,000 years! There is no book like the Bible. What other work can claim the very inspiration of God? In the Bible, we have the Word of God! My hope then is to sing along with the psalmist, “Oh how I love your [word]” (Psalm 119:97)! I want to know it well. And to know the Bible well is to understand the “big picture” story of God’s glorious redemption as it unfolds through the full canon of Scripture. Let’s listen as Dr. D.A. Carson gives a helpful 34 minute overview of the whole Bible. I found it helpful and enjoyable and hope you do too!
