The story of the Bible

Many Bible readers have difficulty fitting everything together. Who came first, Moses or David? What was the “captivity” all about? When did Jesus say he would return to earth?

This course is for people who have begun to read their Bibles, and are trying to fit the major people and events into the overall Bible story. The Bible message is heard much more loudly and clearly if we understand the overall story of the Bible.

These course notes may be printed and photocopied for class purposes, provided they are reproduced without alteration.
