One Saturday, less than a decade after the end of Jesus of Nazareth's life, a man named Paul stood up in a Jewish synagogue with a mind-blowing message. "We tell you the good news," he said. "What God promised our fathers, he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus" (Acts 13 v 33-34). In many ways, in these two sentences Paul was summing up the story of the whole of the Bible. God is a promise-making God. Throughout history, He has made huge, extravagant, wonderful promises to humanity. Crucially, God is also a promise-keeping God. What He says, He does. And at a particular point in history, He fulfilled all of His promises in the life, death, resurrection and rule of one human-Jesus, a carpenter from a small Jewish town. The good news is that God's promises are promises kept. This Good Book Guide will take you on a rapid tour of the whole story of the Bible.
