An Overview of God’s Big Picture

Here is the simple overview of the outline developed by Vaughan Roberts as he simplifies Graeme Goldsworthy’s Gospel and Kingdom.


The Bible is one book.  A diverse collection of writings.  One author.  One subject.   Not a book of quotations.   Not a collection of books.   One book.

Unifying Theme – “The Kingdom of God” – binding theme of the whole Bible – “God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing.”


I.  The pattern of the kingdom

II.  The perished kingdom

III.  The promised kingdom

IV.  The partial kingdom

V.  The prophesied kingdom


VI.  The present kingdom

VII.  The proclaimed kingdom

VIII.  The perfected kingdom

We’ll pick up the analysis in our next blog.
