[ 1. The Bible - the rough guide to life ] 

The Bible is the story of Godís people over thousands of years of history.  It is the story of his relationship with them: their reflection on events after they had happened and what that told them about their God.  It tells of Godís character and it tells of what he hopes for in his people.  Supremely it tells of ĎGod with flesh oní Ė Jesus Christ, of the cross and of its profound significance for Christians today.  It contains narrative, poetry, wisdom, story and more.  The Bible is truly the Rough Guide to life.

Over time, a follower of Jesus will want to explore the Bible from a number of angles, for example:

  • What the Bible is and ways of using it in Christian living
  • What the Gospels are, what they tell us about Jesus and the implications for following him today.
  • Major themes of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) and their relevance today - for example: creation, community, covenant, liberation, holiness
  • The kingdom of God
