Lesson 5: The Metanarrative of Scripture

with Scot Keen | Running time:

The Holy Spirit inspired Biblical authors to develop themes throughout the Bible that tie the whole of Scripture together, across books, geography and time.

In this video, Scot introduces one such theme: the Creation Mandate. God told Adam and Eve to fill the earth with people who would worship Him. Instead, they end up rebelling. God’s plan is not thwarted though. He plans to fill the earth with people who know him and have a relationship with him. And so He raises up someone, the Lord Jesus, to restore creation to what it is supposed to be, tying Scripture together.
