The Main Message of the Bible

The Bible is a very large book, up to 800, 000 words in some English translations. Its size alone can be overwhelming to most of us. However, we may find it helpful to remember the main message of the Bible is quite simple: God, the all-powerful Creator, in His loving kindness wants loving fellowship with mankind. 

God’s power and His faithfulness undergird and demonstrate His loving kindness, and all of these work together to provide Him a holy and just way to bring, even sinners, into loving fellowship with Him. This is message can be seen throughout the Bible. It is demonstrated, even in the Old Testament Scriptures, and is made specifically clear in the New Testament.
