Wycliffe Bible Translators on the Biblical Story

Wycliffe Bible Translators have produced a handy resource for small groups, or to help support a sermon series, on ‘The Whole Story in Five Acts’, the five acts being:

Act 1: Creation – Genesis 1-3

Act 2: Israel – Genesis 12-Malachi 4

Act 3: Incarnation and Redemption – The Gospels

Act 4: The Church – Acts and 2000 years of history

Act 5: The Future – Revelation

As they say:

‘This story is not like any other story you are likely to come across. The Bible story claims to be the ultimate story which explains why the universe exists, why the world is the way it is and where the whole of creation is heading. It is a story that makes a claim on your life: which says that you were created for a purpose and which tells you what that purpose is.’

Each part also includes some stories from Bible translation around the world, insightful and suggestive for those (like me) who are largely locked inside a western mindset.

A pdf of the whole thing is available here.
