The Story Bible Study Series: God the Creator (Randy Frazee)

The Story Bible Study Series: God the Creator (Randy Frazee)

Randy Frazee teaches us that in the Bible there are two stories going on at the same time. There is the lower story which is how we see life from our perspective. Then there is the upper story which is how God sees things from his perspective. In God the Creator, the chronology from Genesis to Ruth, God is taking what seems like disconnected stories and he’s weaving them all together to tell his one grand story. The Bible, from the Old to the New Testament, is just one grand love story that shows the full extent to which God went to get us back.
