The Bible in a Minute

The Bible is about ‘One God’ who created everything; and about the Devil who wanted everything God created.

God spoke to a man named Abraham. God told him to leave his country and go to a land that would be revealed to him.

By faith Abraham took everything with him and finally settled in a land called ‘Canaan’.

God showed Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky.

God supernaturally gave Abraham a child; and from that child arose the mighty nation of Israel.

God gave the people of Israel the 10 Commandments.

But they were unable to prosper in the land because of their sin.

God’s commandments, however, hi-light the need for a Saviour.

God gave them their Saviour - the Son of God - whose name is Jesus.

But they would not accept him and had him put to death.

Jesus took the punishment for our sins for all time.

He was buried in a tomb. The Devil thought he’d ruined him, but Jesus broke the power of death and came alive again.

So that anyone who now believes in the Name of Jesus is forgiven of their sins and will live with God the Father for Eternity.
