The Bible is the world’s bestselling book, but it is long and sometimes difficult to understand. This book will give you a place to start. It’s rather like a high altitude flight over a range of mountains. You’ll see what the ground looks like, and get a good glimpse of the highest peaks. The whole Bible is one story. It begins in a garden, ends in a city and all the way through it points us to Jesus Christ.
This course will open up the story of the Garden where God introduces Himself, and tells us who we are. We’ll learn about the disaster in the garden and its effects on our lives today. Then we will follow the Old Testament story, discovering how right through human history God has been reaching out to men and women, making a way for us to know Him, and inviting us to come to Him.
10 Keys will also open up the story of Jesus, exploring his birth, death and resurrection. We will discover who the Holy Spirit is, and see what God intends the church to be. Then we will take an honest look at the Christian life; the struggle that every Christian experiences, and the power that God makes available to us. Finally, we’ll take a glimpse at the highest peak of all—the new creation that God has promised when Jesus Christ returns in glory.
