Beyond Bible Trivia

How do you fare when one of the categories on Jeopardy is “The Bible”? Are you proud of yourself when you are able to respond, “Who is Nebuchadnezzar,” to the question, “This ancient king had three men thrown into a fiery furnace,”? Bible trivia is fun and it is definitely helpful to have a working understanding of Bible history. It is, however, the divine truths which we learn from those historical events which change our lives here and for eternity.

This weekend we’ll be studying chapter 2 in the Story Bible – God Builds a Nation. We’ll see how God used a man named Abraham to form a nation which would become his representative in the world. It might all seem to be a lot of ancient history with little relevance to us living almost 4000 years later. But the events of the Bible are not really about people and movements – the main character is always God and what He is doing among the human beings He created.

Far from being dusty names and facts from the past, the story of Abraham is a riveting account of God working powerfully in a man as He carries out the Rescue Mission of all time.
