Theology is basically the story of the Bible. Take a look at the big picture. To me thinking about the big picture is more scary, but looking at big picture and small details are equally important. Teaching us the story of the bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Biblical theology- Tracing the story of the Bible
Every passage should have some origin in Genesis and some endpoint in Revelation.
Why do we do this? See Luke
Genesis 2 contains four key principles
Tree of life
Tree of knowledge of good & evil (Discernment, wisdom, or judgement)
In Revelation ALL is perfect! Then why do we still need the Tree of Life? And why is the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil gone? Psalms point to Jesus. Judgement tree is now wicked to the unrighteous. WHERE THE WORD OF GOD IS HIS PRESENCE IS. One encounter with Christ is enough to change a person forever. Jesus IS the tree of life that we have been kept from due to our sin.
Jesus is our tree of life. Vital reason to go to church is for communion. Taking communion is tasting a picture of true life. THE CURSE OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL WAS PLACED AND POURED ON JESUS. Jesus gives us life and bore the sins reserved for us.
All scripture points to Jesus. God's word is the Tree of life for us.
God wants us to know him, but do we want to know him? God wants to give us abundant life through his scripture.
