Chestnut Ridge Church
Timeline–Part 1
We all love stories. They make us feel like we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. They can stir the imagination and engage the heart. They motivate us, influence us, and have the unique ability to build connections. So, it’s no wonder that the Bible is the most beloved book of all time! In this series, Timeline, we’ll explore the stories that span 4,000 years of biblical history, from Genesis to Malachi. As we focus on some of the most beloved stores in the Old Testament, we’ll discover that in every story the overarching theme is God’s desire to have a relationship with us.

Being in God’s image means that humans share, though imperfectly and finitely, in God’s nature, that is, in His communicable attributes (in other words, those qualities we share in common with him (life, personality, truth, wisdom, love, holiness, justice), and so have the capacity for spiritual fellowship with Him. –A.P.
