Getting to Know the Bible Personally as One Grand Narrative

The Gospel Coalition 2011 National Conference


In this 49-minute sponsored breakout session, Michael McClenahan, Kent Hughes, David Jackman, and Ligon Duncan, discuss together the growth they’ve experienced in coming to see the Bible as a single narrative with Jesus at the center. They provide insight into painting for the church the whole story of the God’s work of redemption in the Bible.

We don’t have a list of propositional truths, or a compilation of doctrines that God gave to us in order that we may grow to know Him. He gave us the Bible—a story. The whole of Scriptures sweeps us along on the grand narrative of God’s work in redeeming what was broken and making it better than it ever was before. May that story always be at the heart of your preaching, teaching, and the way you live your life.
