Introduction: For many Christians the Bible is a bewildering book of prophets, kingdoms and kings, historical narrative and miraculous happenings. When we look inside we find in addition poems, songs, letters and proverbs. How does it fit together? Where is the story going? Too few Christians have a grasp of the ‘Big Picture’ and Bible timeline. This series is an attempt to give an overview of the Bible, its main themes, all the time focusing on its central message: the person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
