Not History, but Mystory

This is the goal of reading the Bible: not to learn about ancient Israelites or early Christians, not even to know what God said or Jesus did, but to embrace our own identity as the People of God. If we find our place in the great story of salvation history and can live that out with integrity in salvation present, then we have understood the Bible correctly.
