The Bible is a story of sorts but not just any story. It is the story of God working within history to bring about his redemptive plan through Christ. This is story is what some theologians, Bible teachers and pastors call the meta-narrative of Scripture. It is the big picture or story of the Bible. It is the overarching theme of the Bible.
Bible Mesh was created by Emmanuel Kampouris and is taught by a leading group of theologians and pastors like Tim Keller, Alistair Begg, Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, Paul House, Josh Harris, Phil Ryken and Graham Cole. Its slogan is, “One God. One Book. One Story.” Bible Mesh is dedicatred to communicating this big picture story. Numerous contributors walk you through the Bible from start to finish. There are 24 lessons that cover 7 eras of biblical history:
2. The Patriarchs
5. After the Exile
7. The Church
In each of the eras, pastor Tim Keller explains how the gospel can be seen. Within each lesson you can explore deeper into the story line as many articles are provided on things like people, events and places. There are also maps to help you place these people, places and events. At the end of the lessons you can take a quiz to see how much you learned and what you might need to go back over. Finally, there are discussion groups you can join or form to talk about what you learned or ask other Bible Mesh viewers.
Pricing is very affordable. There are individual and group rates. Pastors get the first year free and as a free trial you can have unlimited access to the Creation era.
