One Bible One Year
One Bible One Year aims to give an overview of the whole Bible, book by book. These taster talks each focus on a different book of the Bible and help see the one big story threaded throughout the Bible. During 2015 taster talks will be added as the One Bible One Year progresses from Genesis to Revelation.
Ecclesiastes takes us on a search for meaning in a world that seems fragile, fleeting and, without God, ultimately futile. When we grasp the eternal nature of God’s purposes our whole identity is transformed with the same eternal significance.
Isaiah speaks God’s word to people who have turned living faith into meaningless religion. He challenges people to come back to God, reminds them of God’s promises and gives glimpses of future salvation through the coming messiah and new creation earth.
In Philippians Paul is full of rejoicing for all that God has done for them and all that means for them both on this earth and in the new creation earth to come. The letter teaches us how peace and happiness come from God in any and every circumstance.
The Apostle Paul writes to the Thessalonians with a love a mother has for her little children. He is delighted that their faith is having great impact on others and encourages them with a detailed description of the second coming of Jesus.
Timothy, Titus and Philemon
Paul’s letter to Timothy, Titus and Philemon are written with love and with a delight in handing onto the next generation the work of proclaiming the good news of Jesus. These letters therefore continue to be handed onto each generation with the same vision and relevance as they’ve ever had.
Hebrews celebrates the glory of Christ and then says therefore let us live in the light of knowing him as our High Priest who knows us, atones for us and brings us into God’s throne room of grace.
John begins his letter in a similar way as his gospel, with a declaration that Jesus is the Word of life from the beginning. He explains the nature of God as light and love but also encourages those who follow Christ to live a life of light because he is light and live a life of love because he first loved us.
