This is a continuation of a previous post: ‘God is a Timeless Tale’
Chapter One – What If….?
What if we accept that the words we read, in the subsequent chapters, are based on the following?
- The first five books of ‘The Bible’, namely: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, are the breathed word of God.
- The rest of the books in Old Testament section of The Bible are variously books of history, poetry, prophecy, romance and so on and whilst contributing to the theme of God’s salvation message, are not however the breathed word of God.
- The first four books of The New Testament are a historical account of the life of Jesus, The Christ, and His teachings, written by four of His close followers and whilst they are reliable accounts of His life and teachings, are nonetheless, not the breathed word of God.
- The rest of the books of The New Testament, up to the last book, are a historical account of the life of the followers of Jesus after His resurrection and their interpretations of what Jesus taught. Neither are these books, the breathed word of God.
- The last book is The Revelation of John, his closest follower, concerning the return of Jesus, the Christ, to the earth and the structure and management of the eternal future of the soul and spirit of humans that lived on earth, is prophecy (the confirmation of prophecy being in its coming about and proving to be the breathed word of God).
If you find the above, a reasonable foundation on which to continue, then I will share with you what I have discovered about the God of the first five books of the Bible.
