"The bible is unified story that leads to jesus and talking about how that's a paradigm for reading the bible that we really wanna unpack and were unpacking it. Slowly and actually seven different attributes of this paradigm. We've done the first two which is at the bible is both human and divine and the secondly that the bible is unified literature. This third attribute is about how the bible as messianic literature. Big fancy word that you don't use every day unless your bible scholar. Suppose but we're gonna we're gonna get at it and with me is tim and chryssa. Hey guys hello so. Tim you wanna lead us through. What do you mean what do we mean that. The bible is messianic literature. Yes we spent the last few episodes talking about what we mean when we say the bible is unified collection of diverse literature but that is unified and one of the ways that we said. It's unified that we spelled out a little bit in the last two conversations. Plus two podcast episodes was that there's a governing story that unifies the that's being told from beginning to end not always a straightforward linear way. Sometimes the story will pause and double back. Recover parts of it or go back and focus in on certain things but there's a basic governing story. There was even one video that we made. Because the first words of genesis in the beginning and then in the second paragraph of the revelation the narrative ends by saying and they rained forever and ever Referring back to the image of god on page one which is god bless them appointed them to rain. Let them rain a so. There's a governing story and that governing story is what we're referring to this point we're just going to focus in on the unified storyline of the bible. Which is what we're calling messianic. The story is messianic. A story about the messiah. That's what the stories about. There's been a lot of things right but what is it mainly about. What is it mainly abou- yeah here. It just raises the big question of. What does the bible about which will give us really significant guiding lines as to what it's four and what you do with it. The backyard kind of three unhelpful approaches or paradigm reading the bible. It's a theology dictionary and organized as such therefore. I read it as a dictionary. That's one an awful paradigm. Another is immoral handbook. And i read it as such or the or no the spiritual grab bag virtual grabbing devotional grabbing so each of those assumes an approach to the bible based on what it is. And so what we're saying here. Is that what it is is a unified story that you could say about them. Messiah but that itself foreseen ask like what. What does that mean. So that means we'd read it in a different way than we would if it were a moral handbook and it would have a different impact on us. Yeah that's right. It's a simple point that i think massive implications to one of those kinds of things. Okay so before we get into what the messiah is. Well maybe we have to get into it to answer this question. But i'm just curious why you would say it is. The most important part of the stories with the story is all about. You could say. The story is all about god ruling the earth humans You could say stories. Yeah that is messianic. that is messianic. Let's get into it. Here's the definition. Oh yeah we wrote a sentence. It says the story of the bible. And all of its main themes come to their fulfillment and jesus life death and resurrection and the gift of the spirit. And the okay right. Yeah because everyone. Every time we write a theme video we isolate kind of one kind of interesting motif going on in the story of the bible and we trace that every single time it comes to this climax in. Jesus whatever reason jesus is like this. Gravity had every theme just like russia's to him and then threw his life. You see the theme come to some sort of fulfillment and then in his death and resurrection even more so and then through the life of people follow him so what. There's some like gravity to him. Yeah and that's what you mean by messianic. Yeah that's right. That's right so a couple of simple places to turn to come start this conversation. Are you question this way. Why should anybody care about collection of ancient jewish literature. And what does that have to do with anything. That's a great question actually. It's not obvious to anyone why you should care about the hebrew bible. Why should you care about more than you care about egyptian total literature shakespeare. So one one way to think about it is If i am following jesus or i could do. I use the word christian which is a english word. Christ follower spelling a greek word. That is the greek word for messiah. Oh that's right. The word christ is the greek translation of the hebrew word. Which is the word messiah. So even if i'm a christian means i'm a messiah person messiah person and why would i care about hebrew scriptures well They were huge significance and importance to the person i think as the messiah and that is jesus of nazareth. So here's a story about. Jesus us from the end of the gospel of luke. Luke chapter twenty four this one of these stories where jesus appears surprisingly to his followers after he's risen from the dead and freaked out. They think he's a ghost at first and then he's like hey. Do you have any fetched. I'm so hungry right now. Just took it out of me to raise on debt so hungry snack so what he says are the people in the room and he says this luke twenty four forty four. These are the words that i was speaking to you..

"And i think this three part way of organizing things gets us question or comment and then we'll take Take the next step. I how do we know that The worst sea monster is not wail and is the reason i asked. Many people argue that the bible is not true. Because you can't find dinosaurs mentioned in the bible and we know that dinosaur is a is a fairly modern Worried how do we know that the greeks were not referring to a whale. Oh i certainly think it can account for whale. But especially in the hebrew bible the monsters of the deep are given a much broader profiled and just big big fish. Although the hebrew word used in the book of jonah is the word fish fish specifically but what that fish means and signifies in the story will come back to that what i was just drawing attention to is in the greek representation of the fish. Here it's not the word fish it's a word conceives to the huge things of the man. I still have my boys little boys right now and our sunday afternoon. Traditions to watch like ocean documentaries disowned to sea creatures. And so i have to remind myself. I have to think myself into a time period in human history where no one's ben down there with cameras and so like what you know of what's down. There is what you see. Surface the few people who traversed the seas right. What you know is what you see surface or what you see wash up and crazy stuff washes up you know from wales to squids and we're little creatures and then you think well there must be a bigger one of that out there so i want to honor the fact that the biblical author is represent the creatures of the deep from based on their experience of it. You know what. I could see as a gray whale back surfacing but if you've never seen one of those on the shore i you have no idea what the rest of that thing. That's kind the thing i think. The the vocabulary of sea creatures is not as all as specific as the way we conceive of it making absolutely thank. You hit me like a ton of bricks. One day when i was watching a documentary on my gray whales with my kids and i was like. Oh yeah if. I had never seen this thing under the water. Who knows what i would think it is anyway. We'll come back to that first. Forty eight there. Why is all in caps. Oh thank you. This is the new american standard translation. They do readers a favor. When there is a verbatim quotation or near verbatim quotation from the old testament. They put it in all capital letters. Just not translation just in the new american standard. Yep the thing is. They don't always get all of them. They don't always notice all of them. There's a whole bunch that ought to be in caps. That aren't and there you go. I appreciate the sign in the way that jesus playing on. What else going on with joanna. But it's always bothered me in verse. Forty says so the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth and then you read to the end of the gospel and it's three covers three days but it's only two nights as there's something we're supposed to get from that or we'll talk about that. The three days motif in testing or near death stories in the hebrew bible and the phrases used to refer to. This concept is actually pretty diverse. We can be three days. Three nights can be on the third day. It can be three days but not mentioned the nights. It's a motif used in patterned stories in the hebrew bible and jesus will sometimes say on the third day when he refers to his resurrection. Sometimes we'll say on the third day sometimes and then this time he says this which i think ought to give us a clue that it's about the concept underlying it as opposed to earth rotations on verse forty five. The bible says then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. You're talking about luke. Chapter twenty four right sounds very mystical. Many people can think that oh by by the art of magic they suddenly understood or is talking about. He walked in through the scriptures and suddenly their their minds open. Yeah man welcome to a two thousand year old question about what did the the biblical authors no when i say biblical i mean the authors of the hebrew bible. What did they know. And how much were they aware of this summary right here that jesus gives there have been some movements that say they didn't know anything. It was all just stories and poetry or they knew some things but they didn't have any concept that the story of jesus how it actually went would be the way that it gets fulfilled so complete surprise and so that the meaning that followers of jesus now look back and sees exceeds the human intended meaning but accesses the divinely intended meaning but one people frame it up there would be another camp that kind of goes to another extreme to say no. It's really important. This whole package deal. The jesus rises is exactly what the old testament authors intended even with if it was fulfilled in ways that might have surprised them they had that basic picture and then there's using between so not just because i like to be in between extremes but because that's just where the evidence points me notice when jesus comes up here and meets the first to notice he called them idiots for not understanding the scriptures but then at the same time there's something that happened when post death and resurrection enables people to see things that in theory they could have seen but now that it has happened. It you can't unsee it now. And i think there's some combination of both there and i find myself a different seasons of my life kind of being in between those two extremes in different ways. I have a hard enough time seeing it even after the resurrection taking me a long time to work. But i also yeah. I'll at least try and make clear as we go through jonah these authors. They no way way more about how the story has to be resolved. And it's not just a matter of them. Like being like nostradamus like they look into a crystal ball. It's biblical authors studied these texts as they were producing them and they were students of their own history. They were looking for how god was speaking to them through their own history and as they studied history they saw patterns and the book of john is like distillation of the whole story in the one little book and the way that the the story has to be resolved you begin you read the gospels new lack for any other way for the story this is of course how it had to go but when the disciples or watching jesus got crucified. That's not what they're thinking they're thinking. Oh this is game over. Which is why jesus has to have this bible study so i'm still wrestling with that question. And since it's been two thousand years of people wrestling with my hunters that i'm not going to figure it out but if you do let me know. Really interested cynthia. So i have a question about this. Three part structure versus the structure that we now technically half our own bibles so you said that. This structure supposed to mimic jesus own reis fall resurrection. And so do you feel like the way that our bibles are structured. Now detracts from that from from our ability to see that. I don't think it detracts from it. I do think the way that jesus read his bible. We will more easily see what he sees.

"Poetry and how these texts communicate. And why are they are What they so. Let me put up a proposal. You have a hand out the part where it's available on online. That's called how to read a text like the hebrew bible. Once you get that in front of you and then what i'm going to invite you to do is actually also a bible at the same time and go with me to luke chapter twenty four. Let's ask a fresh question and ask it for yourself and for anyone that you would ever try to introduce to the bible. Why on earth should you invest time and energy into reading in ancient text from the other side of the world. That's written in hebrew or ancient greek. Do you have any other friends who sit around. Reading egyptian hieroglyphics right. We're translations of ancient babylonian literature. Whatever you know like no no. You don't people who do that congregate and things we call universities and they're nerds and god bless them but it's not like a normal thing. So why should you or anyone else. Dedicate the time and energy into reading these ancient hebrew texts in hebrew or english or whatever translation. You happen to be reading in y and for a follower of jesus. Actually it's a pretty clear answer to that question revolves around the book as it revolves around a person a person that we although so jesus was jewish he grew up embedded in the story of israelite. People there were called. did you. Dan's the jews by his time by their neighbors and when the moment he hits the ground as an adult launching his mission. He is connecting everything that he is doing to a set of texts that his people cherished. It's actually i told you. Go to luke twenty four. Stay there. i'll just show you from earlier. In luke in luke chapter four after jesus is baptized by john. The baptist he goes into the wilderness and he's tested but we're told the first thing he does in public in the gospel of luke these go to his hometown of nazareth. This is luke chapter four verse six and goes on the sabbath day and he stands up to read from the scroll of the prophet isaiah and he reads this long quote from isaiah chapter. Sixty one that it's chapter sixty one big sixty six chapter book and so he just assumes like everyone's tracking everybody knows why i would read from this and what it means and how it all fits in and so he rolls up the scroll when he's done gives it back to the attendant and says today it starts today. It starts the thing that i read and you know all of what that means today. He doesn't even bother to explain what it is like. He doesn't even use his own words to launch his mission with me. So if i am a follower of jesus. And i remember this. Like i didn't grow up reading the bible. And so i start following jesus when i was about to turn twenty years old and started just read the bible. I'd never done it before. And i start on page one. I started with jesus stuff. Because i was really interested in him. And so i'm reading these accounts and it was. I didn't know anything and it was clear to me. Oh this first. Three quarters of my bible. That christians called old testament. It's not just that it's important to jesus. It defines reality for jesus. He sees it as the story that makes sense of who he is and what he's doing and then it was just kind of a. Oh okay i. It should matter to me too. That's why. I should read the first three quarters of this big book even though it's really complicated but apparently the more time invest here the more jesus will become three-dimensional with color and become even more awesome than yard here. So you get to luke. Chapter twenty four begins with the empty tomb and poetic class. Many things explore their empty tomb. Jesus appears to Some of the women that are there and then excuse me empty tim. They don't see him. Sorry and lucas. Just the empty tomb. People don't see him. And jesus gone what's happening verse thirteen at same day. Two of them were going to a village called a mass about seven miles from jerusalem. Talking about everything that happened everything well all storyteller while they were talking and discussing jesus himself alive from the dead came near and went with them. But there is were kept from recognizing him he said to them. Yeah when talking about they stood still looking sad then. One of them named clips answered. Are you the only stranger in jerusalem who doesn't what happened in these days. He asked them Great jesus playing dumb right so what things please tell me. They replied everything. About jesus of nazareth a prophet mighty indeed and word before god and all. The people are chief. Priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to death crucified him. We hoped he was going to redeem israel so notice that so they believed he was going to redeem israel but redemption doesn't involve getting executed by the romans. And besides all this. It's now the third day since this happened and some women from our group astounded us because they were at the tone this morning and his body is not there so they came back and told us that they had seen a vision of angelic beings. Who said he's not dead but he's alive and then some of us went to the tomb and it was just like the woman said. Nobody saw jesus then jesus said to them. Idiots fools fools. You're so slow of heart to believe everything that i've been telling you and much less for. Forget what i've been telling you. Everything that the scriptures have to say that right there she breathes above the bible and does the new testament exist yet. It does not exist for them. They're talking about the hebrew scriptures. Can you read the scriptures to. Shouldn't you read the hebrew scriptures and walk away with a very clear idea the messiah will suffer and then enter into glory. Old testament one. Oh one then. Beginning with moses and all the prophets moses. it's obviously not the person what's this a reference to two the first five books of hebrew scriptures and then the prophets which. We'll talk about in a moment. He's referring to the scriptures and he interpreted to them all the things about himself he goes on he pretends like yes to keep walking than they have a meal. Amazing story. we don't have time to finish. He appears to a larger group of people and says the same thing. Look down in verse. Forty four he appears to a larger group of disciples. And he says you guys. These are the words that i spoke to you while i was still with you. Everything written about me. In the torah of moses in the profits and that now we get a new addition here the torah the prophets and the psalms had to be fulfilled then opened their mind understand the scriptures. Oh to be a fly on the wall at that bible study right. But here's the basic summary. You read the hebrew scriptures. Torah profit soames. And here's like a bullet list of things you ought to get. The messiah is to suffer is to rise from the dead on the third day repentance and forgiveness of sins announced in his name to all of the nation's beginning in jerusalem right one. Oh one right. According to jesus this is old testament one on one. There's the summary right there and here we are and it's happening you're witnesses..

"Far as the books go get the books or someone says. We'll get the dogs. If you knew that you had dogs than you would understand. Why yes. Those are dogs that i will get. These are the books or someone says You had a gathering in some ways the plates where you do understand that there is that collection of plates or there are some dogs. There's some books whatever that might be so then you talks about the book. He understood that there was also a collection their old testament. Thus we have some information about cannon. Then they'll have sometimes tried to make their own cannon. History is replete with several examples of that you find for example accepting the apocrypha eagles catholic books which we are not going to be able to get to tonight when people except those books they are trying to bring in books which were not part of god's cannon if you have something else being done in there have been multiple examples of this. People have sometimes rejected a bible book. It's been proven to be a bible book a book which was inspired by god. And people said. I don't want that look. We don't have that up here yet. But martin luther remember which he didn't have great appreciation for called a rights. Draw your pistol. It was james. So i don't think we would say that. He rejected that book but certainly is he thought about books that really merited a lot of attention held in high regard. That was not one that that he saw in those waves So accepting a book which did not designed to be accepted rejecting the book when you look at the samaritans. They had their own cannon. They looked at the books of genesis through deuteronomy and they said we believe that these books are from god however and. That's we find that last year they did not believe that everything in genesis deuteronomy was from god. They had what you might call an edited version. I have not personally seen this. But i have found over the years. Preachers have dealt with people sometimes. Who in a bible study for example. They're being asked about a certain passage purchases says well let's turn over to mark chapter sixteen and the person says that is not my bible says well sure it is no. It's not. Well yeah let me show you where it is so they turn over there and then all the sudden you can see some tear marks the person. The person actually tore it out well. They've not rejected the whole book of mark but in that particular case they did reject at least a chapter or they rejected a page from the book of mark. And that's not exactly making your own cannon but that is in the same basic ballpark so it said that people have done that but if a book or they did not like certain bible books they will do that when you look at matthew chapter twenty two verses eight for example we find that the sad jesse's. They did not accept the resurrection so there were some things there in the old testament that they also did not accept now that might be shocking to that they were people who were that will educated people who were influential jews that were not willing to accept everything as far as gods inspired old testament books but as i said before the stuff that we're talking about generally these are not new problems. Jesus in luke chapter twenty four hundred forty four want to have that passage jesus hints at an old testament canon. He indicates and he doesn't give book by book. Whoa but it does give you an indication that the old testament a specific grouping and he points to the fact that in that grouping there were books that god did design for the jews to have books that were inspired anybody there and want to read that for chapter twenty four hundred forty four all right maxine. The words which has found that all be written off. Thank you how many divisions does jesus offer for the old testament he says there is the law and there are the prophets and there are the psalms anything else a threefold division. Now you can go back and try to plug different books into those but jesus does give you a basic division there and that is information Pointing to canton now. It is true that we have more information about the new testament. Canon the old testament. I don't know that that's the problem because the old testament were under that testament and that's that's important. We want to make sure that that is reliable. But our focus is really on the new testament. There were strong incentives to determine canonists city in other words. Says you go back and you look at the first christians all the way up for about the first four hundred years of christianity different circumstances for that four hundred year period costs people to sometimes have some really strong incentives to figure out whether or not a book was from god or a book was not from god and sometimes today just as questions if you'd then a member of the church for very long you've probably been simaba classes whether it was taught by me or someone else. There was a question that came up. And you think oh. I've heard this question brought up before and this question has been discussed before and we didn't have agreement on it the last twenty two times and we're probably not going to have agreement on it today. Anybody ever been in a situation. We'll good league one day you will and when you start looking at the discussions that zimbabwe believing people had there was that discussion. Should we accept this book as canonical or should we not. One of the problems was there. Were some people running around. Who were hero. Ticks when we look at our daytime we got sacks. We have people seeing all kinds of things and sometimes those things are not just wrong. Sometimes those things are very wrong and just like now the megaphone that the people had way back when was in some respects not as loud as what we have today with the internet and other tools that allow people to put some information out in into the public domain quite easily but there were some people who were very very influential and he'll have some people out there now bear in mind. We're talking about people who are here. Dick's people who are expressing some views which are completely contrary to the truth completely. False as far as what's right is some people out there for example. Let's say that they're they're telling people. The book genes is not inspired. When that is false is not going to be a problem. What happens if they say. There's only one account of jesus life if god gave four. Is that a problem now. Somebody has that you and the hold the privately. That may not be such a big deal. But when someone has that view and they began to spread that far and wide and perhaps they began to amass followers. Now what he have. You're trying to convert the unsafe. That's about battle over here but now you're trying to put out the fires that are being promoted by this heretic and by his followers and your problems are just mushrooming so for the hair tech's important to put some of these guys down by saying look there is a canon of scripture. Marsin comes along about one forty four ad so he's about one hundred years little over one hundred years hundred and ten years after the establishment of the church and you can find some information about him online. He's an interesting character. He was someone and there are still people today who express views like he had me when he would say the god of the old testament was not the god of the new testament is was that the god of the old testament was mean. The testament was the nick of the god of the old testament was an angry gone. But when we flip over to the new testament we have in his mind a different guy. We have a god who is nice. We have a god who is loving. We have a god who is peaceful. We have a god who is merciful. We have a god that you want to follow but if you earned an old testament that god was not so much you think there's anybody in the world that believes that today. We still have people now. They might believe that a different reason but this is not a new view. If you were to go back and talk to marching. You'd find that. He believed that only. Paul taught the true gospel. Would you have a problem with it. A.

"Two disciples who are on the road to amaze they see a stranger. It's really jesus. But we don't recognize him. And jesus says what's are what are you guys to. And they're like what are you talking about. Do not even know what's going on. And he's like well. What do you mean what's going on today. Explain you about the crucifixion. We're looking this phrase the again and you just kind of paraphrased. It's luke chapter twenty four. I one but we trusted. Notice the past tense. We had hoped that he was the one we trusted. But i guess we were wrong. And i think it's pretty powerful to see that in the very moment they were losing hope. Jesus was walking with them. I think that's a powerful passage that we can share with those who are losing up to say just like they thought it was over. Jesus was with them even in that moment in jesus and how many father are with you. You've been in your difficult times and again. I looked at creating space in sitting with them on saturday or when before the resurrection. It's easy to jump towards the resurrection. Say yeah but look i mean. He overcame don't you feel better now but just like sitting there just like christ could have walked up and said hey guys. I'm here like i'm resurrected. But instead he's like no. I'm going to some questions and they're not gonna realize it's me but will help them sit with the reality of the hopelessness which brings greater redemptive power to the event of the resurrection. Awesome awesome Side note here. I just wanna pivot towards real quick. Is it's difficult at times to deal with the crucifixion. Because it is so gory right like we are not the type of people lineup for the gory movies at the movie theater. Like i wanna look away. I don't wanna consider it like the gas seminary so ambiguous that i can sort of be there like. I don't know what happened. Bleed from every pore i. Let's be there but when we go to calvary it's just hard to be there mentally. You're spiritually so. How would you respond to that. As far as the it's hard to consider these doctrines when they include such gory nature. So that i think this is a really interesting question and my theory is that it's sort of an individual approach. Maybe some of us have a reticence to view those kinds of images and within project that onto everybody else. But i think there are certain there sometimes and maybe for some people were. It's actually very helpful to think about a graphic image of a crucified. Christ just a couple of examples.

Use us to Spread Your Gospel - Luke 1:14

"Luke Chapter One verses one through four inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who, from the beginning, were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us. It seemed good to me also having followed all things closely for some time past to write an orderly account for you most excellent theophilus the you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. These are the words that Luke writes to open up his Gospel and there's so much here just to unpack. Think through as we get a glimpse into who is what Luke's purposes? Who He's writing, too, but the big picture I want to. Let lead us to pray. Today is luke. Realizing that, he has seen and heard things that he cannot keep to himself. He's saying other people have. told me things have shared things with me. I've talked with eye-witnesses and ministers of the word people who have walked with Jesus people who have seen Jesus do different things and I am undertaking. What turns into twenty four chapters of writing to let us Theophilus No, who Jesus is? What Jesus taught in how Jesus can change your life, I we have this whole book. That is obviously a huge benefit to us. Today has been for followers of Jesus for non-christians for that matter to learn about Jesus throughout centuries, but it was written in the very beginning for one person for Theophilus did the awfulness might know the truth about who Jesus says what Jesus Taught, and how just died on the cross, so that repentance and forgiveness in sensory proclaimed in all nations will get to that in Luke Chapter Twenty Four. But based on this introduction I just want to encourage you. Even as do the same thing in my own mind. Like, think about someone. In Your Life. Who needs to know who Jesus says? Who needs to know what Jesus taught? Who needs to know what Jesus did on the Cross? And, think through okay. Luke sat down. He wrote. A, whole letter as a Gospel account a story of Jesus. So what Mike God be calling you to do. For that person in your mind. Who needs to know about Jesus? Maybe maybe this sitting down writing a letter email her may be actually a handwritten letter to them. Maybe it's calling them.
