eras of the Bible
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth – and right from the beginning, we can see ourselves in Adam and Eve – and we see our need for a Savior.
God chose Abraham to be the father of his chosen people, and it will be through Abraham’s descendants that God sends the world a Savior.
God’s chosen people were enslaved in Egypt for 400 years, and they needed someone to rescue them. God sent Moses, who foreshadows another Rescuer who would come to deliver God’s people again.
God promised Abraham the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and God empowers Joshua to leads God’s people to recapture this Promised Land.
God’s people waver in their faithfulness to God, but God rescues them over and over again when they turn to Him for help.
God’s people want a king to lead them just like every nation around them. However, the key to peace is not to be like every nation around them, but rather to see only God as their King.
After the nation of Israel splits, God creatively preserves His people by allowing his people to be captured and exiled for 70 years.
After 70 years in exile, Israel’s leaders bring the people back to Jerusalem to rebuild their land and anticipate a Savior.
For 400 years, the nation of Israel waits… and waits… and waits… for a Messiah, a Savior, to save their souls.
The Messiah, the Savior, the Helper, the Rescuer, the One who had been prophesied about, God in the flesh… he is here. And he comes as a little baby boy in the town of Bethlehem. His name is Jesus.
After Jesus leaves the earth, he gives his Holy Spirit to empower his people to lead his Church – and it explodes!
One day in the future Jesus is coming back again to judge the world, punish evil and sin. Jesus will save those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ.
