1 Introduction It is important to understand the Biblical Narrative and to understand some of the theological terms and ideas that come up through scripture. In Introducing Christian Doctrine Erickson says “ Christian doctrine is simply statements of the most fundamental beliefs the Christian has, beliefs about the nature of God, about his action, about us who are his creatures, and about what he has done to bring us into a relationship with himself ”. If as believers we study God’s word and how it applies to us as his creation, we can be sure that we are living for and loving God the way he commands. There are many theological topics throughout the Bible but this essay will be going over the Gospel and the Covenants and how they should impact our understanding of God and the way we live our lives. Biblical Narrative The Bible is the story about God and his plan. This story is broken up into four categories; creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. In the first chapter of Genesis God creates the universe and everything in it. At the height of God's creation, he creates mankind (Adam and Eve). God shows in Genesis 1:26-27 that mankind is set apart and made in his image. Next, the pinnacle of God’s creation, Adam and Eve, are deceived by a cunning serpent (Satan). They both ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil even though they were forbidden by God to do so. This brought on the next stage of the story, the fall. Now that they have disobeyed God, the Bible explains from this point on mankind could no longer hold a relationship with God. This leads to major issues as the creation ages. This is not where the story ends though, God shows through the remainder of the Old Testament and the New Testament, that he has a plan to redeem his lost creation. This is seen through the Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant, Davidic

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
