A Simple Outline of the Bible



"This great story has within it many complex parts -- fragments of history, law codes, moral systems, stories, poems, prophecies, philosophies, visions, wise sayings, letters -- but the main structure or outline is simple.  It can be seen as a completed circle which first moves downward from the garden of Eden into the wilderness of human history, and then slowly and painfully back to the starting point, as man proceeds toward Eden restored or the New Jerusalem."
~Alvin & Hope Lee~
Of course, if it's Eden "restored" or the "New" Jerusalem, the story ends up in a much better place than merely "back to the starting point."

At the end God's people are not just innocent again... they are glorified.
