We have only had three lessons, but we are already knee deep intoGod’s story – and isn’t it beautiful? One of my hopes for this study is that you will grow in your appreciation for theliterary beauty of God’s Word. The inspiration of Scripture was not a wooden process. Rather, the working of the Spirit with men to record God’s Word was a beautiful andcreative process. The Spirit clearly used the gifts, strengths, and personalities of each of the human authors.
And isn’t the inspiration of the Spirit clear in the unity of the story? So far, we have only looked at one book in the Bible -Genesis. But we can already tell that the author used a specific literary device by which to propel the reader through all the different stories of God’s Kingdom – God’s “seed” of salvation. In the first part of God’s story, we’ve learned that the ‘seed’ will come through Eve, through Abraham and Sarah, through Isaac, and through Judah. We’ve also learned that the seed will be a royal and commanding figure with aneternal outlook. We will see that Scripture continues to speak concerning the identity of the seed.
