Mark Lanier: Better Bible Studies - Meta Narratives - Chapter 5

Mark continues with two themes: the Bible as a love story and giving. 1. Love story narrative First, what is love? Mark shares the Greek words for love and the Hebrew word. God centers His love for us throughout the Bible: starting in Genesis, we are created in His image and His love continues through the wedding feast as depicted in Revelation. 2. God as a giver From Genesis to Revelation, all we need is God. Mark points out how God fills every human essential through His giving nature. As images of God we too should be givers. Points for home: Find yourself pursued in love, See your value and be a giver Homework: Research the biblical themes of sacrifice and time. Listen to Mark expound on God’s love throughout the Bible and how He is the ultimate giver.
