Part 4, A Story of Promise

Dave Roberts

Passage: Joshua 1:1-8

Categories: Biblical Narrative

Series: The Greatest Story Ever Told

We love a good story - one with a beginning, middle, and end; a story where you can even skip to the end before knowing the details that brought that ending about. The Bible is not a cover-to-cover linear story, it is more like a narrative arch emerging from the library of books that comprise it. If we look at the end of the Bible in Revelation 21, we find a picture of a future reality that leaves us with the questions: How do we get there? What started this story and why did it lead us here? If this ending hasn’t happened yet, how do we fit into the story? Keeping all of these questions in mind, this eight part series explores how the pieces of the Bible fit together to tell one compelling story of hope, compassion and love - the greatest story ever told.
