The Eternal State: The Goal of Redemptive History
The Eternal State: The Goal of Redemptive History
Genesis 1-2; Revelation 21-22
Speaker's Picture
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 8, 2011

When we take a trip it is important to know our destination. If we do not know where we are headed we wander or become lost. As believers in Christ, we have answers for this world because our eschatology teaches us not only who we are but also where we are going. In this session we will consider the ‘metanarrative’ or ‘grand story’ of all of redemption history by looking at the beginning of the story and at the end of the story. We begin where the Bible begins, in Genesis 1-2, and end where the Bible ends, in Revelation 21-22. Comparing these chapter pairs encourages us that God has a sovereign plan, a plan which brings God and His people into perfect oneness.
