Dave Clarke speaks about the pattern of the kingdom that is found throughout the Bible.
To help us navigate the story of the Bible we need a compass and the Bible itself gives us that compass.
The overarching theme of the Bible is the Kingdom of God and its focus is Jesus Christ.
God's people in God's place under God's rule - this is the thread, the pattern, that unites the Bible.
At the beginning of the Bible we have the perfect creation. God's people were Adam and Eve, God's place was the garden of Eden and God's rule was God's word and perfect relationships.
