How to Find Your Place in God’s Story | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke 2.21-40




"The last act is about to begin: God is about to console Israel. God is about to rescue them from exile. God is about to draw the Gentiles into His own family and to announce forgiveness for all people—Jew and Gentile alike." (Luke 2.21-40) stages the beginning of the end. The Bible contains two large books, the Old Testament and the New Testament, which each contain several more books of their own. It's tempting to read all these stories separately and miss the overarching narrative. Hear how (Patrick) pieces it all together in this episode as we continue our series on (Learning to Follow Jesus). In this episode, we discuss the story of the Bible.
