Summarise the Bible in five statements

My friend Sally tagged me: Summarise the Bible in five statements, the first one word long, the second two, the third three, the fourth four and the last five words long. Or possibly you could do this in descending order. Tag five people.

Here’s my Bible summary:

1. Revelation
2. God acts
3. Jesus changes everything
4. Spirit calls us forth
5. Now, how will you live?

  1. 1. Everywhere we look we see the world is filled with oppression and violence.
    2. It wasn’t meant to be like this because God made the world and declared it Good.
    3. God came into the world as a human being to experience the evil and overcome it.
    4. Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.
    5. We have died with Christ and our life is hid with Christ in God.


  2. I’d have to go with Scot McKnight’s summary in “Blue Parakeet”:
    -Created For Oneness
    -Sin Brings Otherness
    -Struggle For Oneness
    -Oneness In Christ
    -Oneness Forever
    Of course, each point needs qualifying, but I’d just say read the book!
