Bringers IX... The Timeline


"With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand" (Mk.2:33).

When we have the opportunity to try to bring a prospective seeker to the Lord, using a Bible timeline is a good method. A chronological overview of the Bible, for a number of reasons, is a good method because it is 100% gospel focused. Why? Because every event in the Bible points either forward of back to the Savior, and the timeline highlights the "interconnectedness" of the Bible in a beautiful fashion. A good place to start for the young Christian or the seeker is the book of Genesis. I think that this helps the seeker to understand that the Bible is from God and develops an awe for what He has revealed. It also builds a strong foundation as they are being led to Christ... It is a very "non-threatening" way to pique interest and elicit critical thinking... As we walk through the Old Testament, showing fulfilled prophecy that Jesus was the only possible individual who met the requirements to be our Savior, it is imperative that seekers are converted the Jesus... Not baptism, the Bible or even the church... To Jesus... The OT is also replete with information that when honestly considered, completely destroys the popular notion that the Bible is a book of fables and fairy tales. Interweaving secular history into the Bible narrative is a further validation of the accuracy and credibility of the Bible in the mind of a hearer. All of this must be covered over a period of time so that the seeker may get a full flavor of God and His Son.... Today's verse reminds us that Jesus taught in such a way as to respect what His hearers were able to comprehend and bear. The words and thoughts of our almighty God can't help but impress a seeker, as we present the gospel in an unadulterated way. True seekers will express an interest...

Have a great day... T   G   I   F         Thank God I'm Forgiven.... Love mark Phil.4:11
