“The Story of the Bible" is an evangelism method by Dr. Susan Booth from our Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary & College. It is based on five symbols:
CREATION: God made the world and everything in it. He made us in his mage to know and love him, to walk with him and worship him.
The FALL: Hamanity disobeyed God; sin and brokenness have plaqued every generation since. All have sinned and the payment for sin is death.
The RESCUE of God through faith in Christ: Because of his great love for us, God sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, on a rescue mission to deliver us. Fully God and fully man, Jesus died in our place on the cross. He then rose from the dead, victorious over evil, sin, and death.
The RESTORATION: Jesus promised to return and make all things new. As King, he will cast away all that is evil, and live with his people forever.
RESPONSE: How will you respond to the Gospel story of the Bible? Will you repent and trust in Jesus and follow Him as your Saviour and King? Turn from your sin, trust in Jesus, and follow him as your king. His indwelling Spirit will give you forgiveness and eternal life!
Each symbol helps you remember how to tell the story of the Gospel from Genesis to the New Testament.
This is a simple and effective way to train your church in how to share the Gospel.
