Adorned

Ep. 81 (re-air) – Advent – Creation

By December 3, 2020No Comments

For Advent in 2019 we walked through the metanarrative of scripture; creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. We decided to re-air this series this year to go long with our new Biblical Theology Advent Cards! We created these cards to guide families through the story of scripture focusing on God the Son and His role from creation all the way to restoration.

There are three cards for each week of advent. Each card will prompt you to read a main truth, open your Bible to read that day’s passage(s), pray, and discuss or complete an activity. On the back of each card is part of a puzzle which, by Christmas, will create a beautiful reminder of the reason for the season.

On episode 81 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss creation. The Son did not just suddenly appear at His incarnation, but has always been. We see this through the trinitarian language used way back in Genesis! We would love for you to listen in as we discuss what this means for us during the Christmas season.

 

Quotes:

“The Bible provides us with the basic story that we need in order to understand our world and to live in it as God’s people” -The Drama of Scripture

“Heresy is destructive, not just for your mind, but for your life.” -J.T. English

“Christmas is not God’s second plan. Before he created the world, God determined to save sinners through the blood of his own Son. The grand narrative of the Bible points to this essential truth — God determined to bring glory to himself through the salvation of a people redeemed and purchased by his own Son, the Christ. Bethlehem and Calvary were essential parts of God’s plan from the beginning, before the cosmos was brought into being as the Son obeyed the will of the Father in creation.” -Al Mohler
