Season Three

The One Story is the story of the Bible, the whole story, the story of it all! Not of all that is, but of all that matters, into which all that is fits. You fit, so you have a role to play. What role? It depends! Can you follow directions and stick to a script? Are you interested in a leading role, looking to be a bit player, or intending to be a no-show? Your storyline won’t change the storyline, but will determine how the story will end for you.

Episode Two - Deported by Enemies
No sooner had the nation reached its peak of greatness and glory under David and Solomon, than it started to tear in two. The people, from the leaders on down, turned away from the LORD. Disobedience, idolatry and rivalry violently ripped through the tribal structure of Israel.

Episode Three - Warned & Wooed

Israel and Judah each chose its own pathway. In their race to the bottom, Israel won. The kings of Israel (10 northern tribes) came and went, and the kings of Judah (2 southern tribes) came and went. Mostly faithless with a few exceptions, Israel and Judah, following their leaders, continued on their precipitous spiritual decline.

Episode Three - Warned & Wooed
You are magnificent . . . because God made you magnificent! But don’t get a big head. All human beings are magnificent, in one essential way—not in our looks, our complexity, our ability . . . our anything. It’s in the way God made us to reside in us and live through us. It’s how we “work,” how we function. When we function as designed . . . magnificent indeed! When we don’t!

Episode Four - Returned as a Remnant

One day Israel was a great nation, the next a divided nation, then 10 tribes . . . gone, soon the remaining 2 tribes . . . gone. What’s left? No more Israel, only deported Israelites subservient to other nations! Is God done with Israel? God says . . . “No!”

Episode Five - Scattered
Sin distorted God’s image, flipping it 180° out of phase. Without God’s presence producing His glory, we sought self-glory. Love for God turned to self-love. Trust in God shifted to trust in self. Godliness flipped to godlessness. To see the complete makeover sin made of us, just attach negative prefixes to everything God made us to be—ungodly, immoral, disobedient, misguided, deviant, inhumane, atheistic, irrational, illogical and nonsensical. Adam and Eve passed their distorted image to their progeny. They had children after their (fallen) image and likeness (5:1-2). When Adam fell the human race fell, because we were all “in Adam.”

Episode Six - Jesus - The Words of Christ
Hairpin turn ahead in The One Story. Ready for it? You are, if you’ve gotten the message—We’re all “In Adam” living outside God’s blessing and contrary to God’s design, we’re hopelessly fallen . . . and we can’t get up! It’s “all-she-wrote” for humanity! So it would seem, and so it should be!
