1. www.RevelationAndCreation.com The Theme of the Bible Old & New Testaments are under one encompassing theme: the redemption of mankind from sin Many folks who have read the Bible have failed to see this theme. When asked what the theme of the Bible is, they are stumped. It is simple: It is the redemption of mankind from sin. redemption is the purchasing, payment, price that is involved bying back something that was lost. It conveys cost (see Ps. 49:6-9). “A man may have wealth, and may have his heart enlarged in love, thankfulness, and obedience, and may do good with it. Therefore it is not men’s having riches that proves them to be worldly, but their setting their hearts upon them as the best things. Worldly men have only some floating thoughts of the things of God, while their fixed thoughts, their inward thoughts, are about the world; that lies nearest the heart. But with all their wealth they cannot save the life of the dearest friend they have. This looks further, to the eternal redemption to be wrought out by the Messiah. The redemption of the soul shall cost very dear; but, being once wrought, it shall never need to be repeated. . . . This likewise shows the folly of worldly people, who sell their souls for that which will never buy them. With all their wealth they cannot secure themselves from the stroke of death. . . . Death will ask the proud sinner, Where is thy wealth, thy pomp? And in the morning of the resurrection, when all that sleep in the dust shall awake, the upright shall be advanced to the highest honour, when the wicked shall be filled with everlasting shame and contempt, #Da 12:2. . . .” (Matthew Henry). Mankind – it was the human race that fell and is lost. It is not the animal kingdom, vegetation or fowl (1 Cor. 15:21). These things may share the expense of the curse of sin, but they are not fallen in sin. Sin – what we will speak of next. When churches say that they do not want to hear sermons on sin, they are saying that they are not interested in one of the core components of the theme that has rung throughout the ages.Many folks who have read the Bible have failed to see this theme.

2. SIN “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that time of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things. . .” (Acts 3:19-21a) When we see gospel preachers exhorting people to get the remission of sins in the New Testament, we need to appreciate that they are at the end of God's working that had carried forth throughout the previous ages. We may take for granted the full spectrum of work that was done in order for us to get salvation. God had worked among man in delivering law and in accomplishing deeds so that people could preach and teach people how to get the remission of sins. Sin has been the problem from the beginning and it’s puzzle is solved in the end by Jesus, the church and the New Covenant.When we see gospel preachers exhorting people to get the remission of sins in the New Testament, we need to appreciate that they are at the end of God's working that had carried forth throughout the previous ages.

3. GENESIS 3-11 After God had created all things and made it very good (Gen. 1:31), at some subsequent time man disobeyed God's word and ate of the tree of knowledge whereby he was kicked out of Paradise. Genesis chapters 3-11 is a large segment of scripture connected with our theme but focuses specifically on the wretchedness of sin.After God had created all things and made it very good (Gen. 1:31), at some subsequent time man disobeyed God's word and ate of the tree of knowledge whereby he was kicked out of Paradise.

4. Genesis 3-11 Sorrow & Pain Genesis 3:16 Cursed Ground Genesis 3:17, 18 Death (loss of loved ones) Genesis 3:19; 5:1ff Sacrifice (loss of animal life) Genesis 3:21

5. Separation From God Genesis 3:24 Enmity Against Fellow Man Genesis 4:8 Enmity Against Natural Environment Genesis 7:17-24 Enmity Between Man & Beast Genesis 9:2-5 Confusion Genesis 11:7 Genesis 3-11 [CLICK] cf to Genesis 3:24 - Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. [CLICK] Genesis 4:8 is a recurring error throughout the Bible. It captivated good and evil men alike. Remember David with Bathsheba and David's subsequent enmity against Uriah. Remember those minor prophets. It had taken root among the society of Israel in Zechariah's day, "Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, The alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart Against his brother.’" (Zech. 7:10). Also, think of the way Jesus and the apostles were treated by their fellow country men. [CLICK] This has also recurred throughout history, but Genesis as the point of origin of these curses should bring depth to other passeges besides the flood. Le 20:22 ‘You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out." Nu 16:30 "But if the LORD creates a new thing, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the pit, then you will understand that these men have rejected the LORD." Mt 27:54 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, "Truly this was the Son of God!" [CLICK] With my Bible as my telescope, I see the viciousness of the animal kingdom against man as a consequence of man's sin. At least, that is how the Bible brings it out (cf. Acts 28: 4-6). These individuals attributed the viciousness of this viper and the chance of it clinging to Paul as a judgment against Paul. In reality, the vicious viper became vicious by the the intrance of sin into the world and the chasm of fear and dread that God placed upon many of the animal kingdom.

6. The Promise To Abraham Genesis 12:1-3 The second section to seeing the Theme of the Bible developed is understanding the significance of a promise that was made to Abraham, a wealthy but devout man. This promise is the beginning of the solution to the wretchedness sin.The second section to seeing the Theme of the Bible developed is understanding the significance of a promise that was made to Abraham, a wealthy but devout man.

7. There are four components to this promise that the entire rest of the Bible is given to fulfill. You need to appreciate that the rest of the scriptures are about fulfilling this passage. Also note where sin brought "cursing" the promise to Abraham brings "blessing."There are four components to this promise that the entire rest of the Bible is given to fulfill.

8. The Law of Moses THE PURPOSE OF & RELATIONSHIP TO THE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM The third section of scripture in understanding the theme of the Bible is recognizing the importance of the Law of Moses. Law is important to understanding sin and sin is important to understand in considering redemption from sin. If one holds sin as little, then he will hold the redemption in Christ as little. But we understand sin by law and we understand the magnitude of sin by the consequences of breaking the law when we read the scriptures. In the last lesson, we gave a skeleton outline of the first 12 chapters of the Bible. Chapter one is creation. Chapter two is describing Eden and woman’s creation. Chapter 3-11 is the fall and the consequences of sin. We noted that the blessings that come through Abraham are in contrast to the curse of sin. Now we want to look at the purpose for God giving Israel law and how that relates to the promise to Abraham.The third section of scripture in understanding the theme of the Bible is recognizing the importance of the Law of Moses.

9. The Law of Moses was the Law of God “These are the statutes and judgments and laws which the LORD made between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses” did not originate with Moses, but God made to “ONE” nation: Israel not the church or to any other nation delivered by Moses [CLICK X5][CLICK X5]

10. Not to Any Other Nation “He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel. He has not dealt thus with any nation; And as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise the LORD” (Ps. 147:20) “And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day?” (Deut. 4:8)

11. Wasn’t Made Before Moses “The LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive” (Deut. 5:3) SABBATARIANS ERR IN TEACHING: this covenant was made at creation was made for all nations was made for the church [CLICK X4][CLICK X4]

12. General Thoughts about the Law All Israelites were required to: know it (Ex. 18:16) observe it (Deut. 6:2) lay it up in their hearts (Deut. 6:6) remember it (Mal. 4:4) teach their children (Deut. 6:7) Kings were supposed to write down a copy of it (Deut. 17:18, 19) Priests and Levites to teach (Mal. 2:7) “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” (Deut. 6:7). “For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts” (Mal. 2:7)“You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” (Deut. 6:7). “For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts” (Mal. 2:7)

13. PURPOSE OF THE LAW any great nation needs law (Gen. 12:3) law clarifies what sin is (Rom. 7:7) added to stifle transgression (Gal. 3:19) law shows man’s need for grace (Rom. 3:23) to bring man to Christ (Gal. 3:24) [CLICK] God promised He would make him a great nation (Gen. 12:2). Any great nation needs law. [CLICK] Also consider Rom. 3:20, “Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Not, by the law is the knowledge of sin. Man could not determine sin apart from God’s law. [CLICK] “What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator” (Gal. 3:19) [CLICK] [CLICK] “Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith” (Gal. 3:24) This passage tells us that the end of the law should be in Christ. It also tells us a limitation of the Law. . . Next Chart [CLICK] God promised He would make him a great nation (Gen. 12:2). Any great nation needs law.

14. Limitation of the Law does not justify “Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith” (Gal. 3:24) “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Rom. 3:20). “For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son. . .” (Rom. 8:3) “for the law made nothing perfect” (Heb. 7:19) Even if you live by it as best as you can, you still error and once condemned, there is no true remission through the law. This points to the need of sacrifice. Even if you live by it as best as you can, you still error and once condemned, there is no true remission through the law. This points to the need of sacrifice.

15. SIN originated with Satan (Gen. 3:1ff; Jn. 8:44) violates God’s Law (1 Jn. 3:4) “unrighteousness” (1 Jn. 5:17) begins in the heart (Matt. 15:19, 20; 5:28) Satan was not created evil. He became evil. In order to sin, Satan must have had law placed upon him. He chose to violate that law and also fell. [CLICK] Jesus attributes that Satan was a liar from the beginning. The last time I checked, lying is sin. He is also called a murderer. [CLICK] Sin is a violation of God’s law. “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness” (1 Jn. 3:4) [CLICK] Called “Unrighteousness” “All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death” (1 Jn. 5:17). When you view sinful things, do you view them as “unrighteousness” and “lawlessness.” That is what it is. Sin is not being too tired to have any fun; getting home too late for supper from work; lat to a party; forgetting to include a person’s name in a public prayer because of memory loss or stage fright; is not accidentally missing a birthday party, ball game; etc. Sin is lawlessness and unrighteousness and it all put Jesus on the cross. We need to see sin for what it really is. It dishes out death all on every occurrence. [CLICK] Sin begins in the heart. Satan was not created evil. He became evil.

16. SIN rebellion against God committing what He forbids (1 Thess. 5:22) omitting what He requires (Jas. 4:17; Deut. 8:1, 11) adding to what He authorizes (Deut. 4:2) subtracting from what He demands (ibid.) substituting man’s ideas and machinery for God’s David’s new cart: 1 Chron. 13:1-10; 15:2, 12-15 "Abstain from every form of evil" (1 Thess. 5:22) "Abstain from every form of evil" (1 Thess. 5:22)

17. SIN-CURSED WORLD Sin has turned this beautiful world into a graveyard Such is the real underlying reason for degeneration, deterioration, disease & death? To those who deny the reality of sin: where did the concept of “sin” originate from? where did death originate from? The Bible helps us to understand the kind of world that we live in. It answers that it is a sin cursed world and therefore we should expect sorrow, suffering, death and disease as a part of our lives here.The Bible helps us to understand the kind of world that we live in.

18. Death is here, but why is it here? Why does the body breakdown? Why is death in motion? When did it first exist in this world? These questions are best answered by the Bible itself, rather than by the weak assumptions of men. Sin is the origin of death.Death is here, but why is it here? Why does the body breakdown?

19. The Remedy? – Jeremiah 31:31-34 We have established three main areas of scripture in establishing the theme of the Bible: The Redemption of Man From Sin. In the first lesson we looked at the section of scripture that deals with the curse of sin. Genesis 3 thru ll convey such. It is all about displaying the consequences of sin: cursed ground, pain, sorrow, death, brotherly enmity, confusion, etc. We also gave due attention to the promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 which is in stark contrast to Genesis 3-11. It is about blessings. We noted the different components of the promise and showed that the rest of the Bible was about fulfilling it. In the next lesson we looked at the Law of Moses and gave reasons why the law was given. Notably because God promised Abraham to be a great nation and any great nation needs law; the law showed what sin was; the law showed man's need for grace. Today we will look at the remedy for the problem.We have established three main areas of scripture in establishing the theme of the Bible: The Redemption of Man From Sin.

20. The Remedy? – Jeremiah 31:31-34

21. When Did He Make THE NEW COVENANT? not at creation not on Mt. Sinai when they came out of Egypt not in Jeremiah’s day only after the death of Jesus (Heb. 9:16, 17) 16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives. Hebrews 9:16, 17 We might also say that any covenant needs to be conveyed to people. It cannot be made with anyone unless it is stated. God empowered the apostles on the day of Pentecost to be able to relate the terms of the covenant.16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.

22. THE REMEDY? “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Rom. 7:24) “I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Rom. 7:25a) This is probably the question offered up by men and women throughout the history of world. Who will deliver me from this body of death. No doubt they were asking this when men first began to grow old and die. This body, as good as it is has a lot of weaknesses. However, it is not necessarily physicial infirmity that we need deliverance from. It is spiritual weakness. The Bible says there is a remedy [CLICK]This is probably the question offered up by men and women throughout the history of world. Who will deliver me from this body of death.

23. The Remedy is Jesus! Notice that there is a place that exists today of no condemnation. Also appreciate that anywhere outside of Christ is condemnation. Those who are in Christ walk a certain way. . .according to the Spirit. What does that mean? It means they listen and obey the revelation of the Spirit.Notice that there is a place that exists today of no condemnation. Also appreciate that anywhere outside of Christ is condemnation.

24. Anticipating His Coming “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice” (Gen. 22:18)

25. Anticipating His Coming “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting” (Mic. 5:2) Passages like these abound in the Old Testament (Deut. 18:15; Is 7:14; 9:6; 53; Zech 9:9, 10; etc.).Passages like these abound in the Old Testament (Deut. 18:15; Is 7:14; 9:6; 53; Zech 9:9, 10; etc.).

26. What An Event His Advent Was! the Image-giver was born to the image-bearer Infinity came to the finite the Creator visited the creation the King became a pauper the Lion came as a lamb 2Co 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.2Co 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

27. How is Jesus the Remedy? by providing a payment to put away sins Hebrews 9:22, 26, 28, “And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. . . . He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. . . . so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”

28. by providing a payment to put away sins by reconciling us to God, viz., turning away His wrath (Rom. 5:6-11) How is Jesus the Remedy?

29. Where is One Reconciled? in the church that Jesus built with his blood “Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood” (Acts 20:28) “and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity” (Eph. 2:16; note: church is body 1:22, 23)

30. When is One Reconciled? when he is baptized into Christ COMPARE: “9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood. . .10For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son. . .” (Rom. 5:9, 10) “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?” (Rom. 6:3)
