The Bible For Grown-Ups

The Bible for Grown Ups Part 3 *

Mix n Match • January 27, 2019 • Jeff Fuson

We have the Bible because SOMETHING HAPPENED that was worth writing down and defending and preserving and that SOMETHING was the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This launched Christianity and early Christians assembled a group of texts into one book called ‘the Bible’ hundreds of years after the Resurrection of Jesus. They pulled together writings about the eye witness accounts of Jesus and His resurrection and the launch of the early church. And, they gathered many letters written to the early churches as well. AND, because of their interest in Jesus and his heritage and how God brought Jesus into the world through the people of Israel, they also gathered up ancient Hebrew texts that we now call the Old Testament and added them to ‘The Bible.’ The first full assembly of the Bible into something similar to what we have today came after Constantine’s rise to power in Rome.

The Year of the Bible • January 13, 2019 • Jeff Fuson

Most of us know some Bible stories, but very few of us know the story of the Bible. And you may be surprised to discover it’s a story that doesn’t actually begin in the beginning. It begins with the accounts of a few men who sat down to record the death and resurrection of Jesus. It begins with the words of his followers who were compelled to document the events that had changed everything for them—because they knew it could change everything for us.
