New Testament Overview and Some Thoughts

Here’s the link to the Bible Project’s New Testament Overview page and it’s a great overview of the entire story of the Bible. Think of it as Cliff Notes of the Bible (are Cliff Notes still published?).

I absolutely love the way they present the summary of the Old Testament in “3 Acts” with the repeated pattern and then how the promises from each “Act” are fulfilled in the New Testament through Yahusha. It’s a truly great summary telling of the Greatest Story Ever Told.

They’re absolutely right in that the Bible is one unified story leading to Yahusha, but they do miss one important message. That message is the Gospel of Grace. Paul’s letters to the churches are different than the other apostles’ letters. Paul is the only apostle commissioned with the Gospel of Grace and his message is fully contained in his letters. Paul’s letters are like a big parenthetical story inserted into the bigger story right after the Resurrection. This “Mystery” period will end at the Rapture and then the Law will return for all who are left. When Bible teachers try to tell the New Testament as one story, many supposed contradictions appear (e.g., “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of Elohim” [Eph. 2:8] and “What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith but has no works? Can faith save him?” [James 2:14]). It makes more sense to see the difference in the Gospels than to try to reconcile those two verses together. They completely contradict each other, don’t you think?

Passover Advent Gospels!

Today marks 40 days before Passover begins, so today is a great day to start reading through the Gospels chronologically. I’ve developed a reading schedule that will take you through the Gospel, in the order of event and, by starting this reading plan today, will coincide with the start of Passover and the Resurrection.

Yahusha was raised from the grave 4 days after Passover began, so this year, 2023, this reading plan coincides with Resurrection Day, which churches all over the world “celebrate” as Easter Sunday. Next year, and most years, it doesn’t work out that way. For instance, in 2024, Easter is 3 weeks BEFORE Passover starts.

We finish reading the Gospels this year on Monday 10 April.

I’m always excited to read through the gospels as a story leading up to the Resurrection – the GOOD NEWS! My prayer is that the Ruach will use this reading plan in a powerful way!

Looking forward to celebrating the eternal life we have because of His Resurrection!
