Overview

With so many authors and an array of genres, you might expect the Bible to be an anthology of disconnected pieces. Yet, the sixty-six books from Genesis to Revelation weave together into a cohesive unit of divine instruction. But, the question remains – Is there more? Is there a comprehensive design in the Bible that surpasses the mere idea of conceptual unity?

Stepping back to look more broadly at the arrangement of the sixty-six divinely inspired books of the Bible it is surprising to observe a mosaic image of a person with a head, torso, arms, and legs.

The body of Jesus Christ (Incarnation) and the body of biblical truth (Inspiration) representing the two special revelations of God, were apparently constructed in the same manner.

Taking the books of the Bible in their received groupings and order, being careful not to manipulate God’s providential arrangement, we see a mirror image of the man Jesus Christ. It seems that the Bible presents to us the Person of our Lord, not only in its content, but also in its form. Crafted by God is the unveiling of this discovery and a probing of its implications.

Here is a study that truly unlocks the harmonious structure and purposeful design of the Bible – as well as opening new vistas of thought that put all of Scripture into its contextual meaning.
