The Bible and Human History

Category: History,Theology :: Permalink

We today are so used to reading the Bible only for individual inspiration and personal guidance that we overlook the fact that the Bible is also concerned with the development of human history.  The Bible teaches us that humanity is God’s Daughter.  We are called Daughter Zion and Daughter Jerusalem (often mistranslated “Daughter of Zion”; in fact, Zion/Jerusalem is the Daughter).  We are the “only-created” Daughter of God, whose destiny it is to grow up to become the Bride of the “only-begotten” Son of God.  The Spirit, the Divine Matchmaker, has been sent to prepare the Bride for the Son.  That course of preparation is what human history is all about. — James Jordan, Crisis, Opportunity, and the Christian Future, pp. 4-5.
