This book will help you understand the redemptive story of the New Testament through six major periods: Expectations, Messiah, Pentecost, Teachings and Yet-to-come, with the first letter of each heading making up the word EMPTY. The acronym EMPTY will enable you to grasp the storyline of the New Testament, and place key people, events, and the New Testament letters in their correct time period. The author takes you through each redemptive period, explaining how Jesus marks the fulfillment of God’s promises of old, and how the exalted Jesus continues his mission through his disciples empowered by the Holy Spirit.
The acronym for the entire Bible is CASKET EMPTY. It points to the empty tomb of Jesus as the beginning of God’s new creation, the assurance that death has been defeated, and the guarantee of our resurrection yet to come. Through the acronym CASKET EMPTY you will have a framework for remembering the entire sweep of the Bible with the person and work of Christ at the center.
This book is designed to be read along with the New Testament Casket Empty Timeline available at www.casketempty.com.
