Major Themes in Scripture

The Bible is a large book, touching every major aspect of our lives. Not surprisingly, certain themes or concepts recur throughout the book. The key to understanding the Bible is to recognize the clear patterns established by these themes.

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
