The Plot of the Bible

Since the kingdom of God is one of the major themes of Scripture, it is important to understand as much as we can about it. To understand a nation’s government one studies its constitution, and the covenants of the Bible are the constitution of God's kingdom. To study the covenants is to learn the principles by which God administers his kingdom and to trace the covenants throughout the Bible is to follow the course of the re-establishment of God’s kingdom. The covenants divide Biblical history into epochs in which the same pattern of events repeats itself and therefore gives the plot of the Bible its structure. In addition, an analysis of the covenants of Scripture provides a theological framework for understanding the Bible and insights into how it all fits together. From the covenants we learn the principles by which God deals with mankind.
