One cannot possibly read the entire Bible without an awareness of the golden thread of continuity weaving through every era, every generation, every book, every event! As one reads, he is deeply impressed with the constant necessity of the “created” glorifying the Creator. From the creation of man, and his fall in the garden of Eden, the emphasis is on man’s glorifying the God who made him, and God’s scheme to save man through His only begotten, promised Son. But, before the Son could come, God determined to make the people ready. Through hundreds of years God developed man through the Patriarchal and Mosaic creeds, until finally God decreed that the “fullness of time” had come, and He climaxed all He had done for man in the sending of his Son to “save the people from their sins”.
