Briefly discuss how the words "creation, fall, redemption, and restoration" relate to the main storyline of the Bible -Creation: One Hebrew word sums up the picture of Genesis 1 and 2: shalom. Peace. Earth was full of God's shalom, the kind of peace in which everything works according to God's intention -Fall: Adam and Eve rejected God's rule over them. This rebellion results in physical and spiritual death. -Redemption: shows God implementing a master plan for redeeming His world and rescuing fallen sinners. In the Person of Jesus Christ, God Himself comes to renew the world and restore His people. The grand narrative of Scripture climaxes with the death and resurrection of Jesus. -Restoration: God has promised to renew the whole world, and the Bible gives us a peak into this glorious future. The restoration of all things will take place in two ways. Christ will return to judge sin and evil, and He will usher in righteousness and peace. Briefly discuss how God can be both just and the Justifier of those who trust in Jesus for salvation God must be just and carry out wrath for sin. but the wrath was carried out on Christ instead to justify them. So it still had to be carried out, so he was still just. Briefly discuss how Jesus' teaching about the Kingdom of God differed from how many Jews understood God's Kingdom in the first-century The Jews thought God would bring about a physical kingdom on Earth and that Jesus would lead a revolt against the Romans. But he was interested in building the spiritual Kingdom of God Briefly discuss how the three major worldview families (Atheistic, Pantheistic, and Theistic Worldview Families) differ from one another in relation to the subject of God in particular -Atheistic: Atheism is the denial of the existence of a god or gods and is sometimes associated with worldviews as materialism or naturalism
-Pantheistic: Pantheism identifies God and the world, but they vary in their specific conceptions of this identity. That is, all pantheistic views believe that God and the real world are one, but they differ as to how God and the world are to be identified. -Theistic: Theism says that the physical universe is not all there is. There is a personal God who created it, sustains it, and can intervene within it in a non-natural way. Nietzsche/Truth "There is no truth, only interpretations" (denies both absolute and personal truth even exist)
