I’ve posted this up before, but here is a short, 7-minute video with a beautiful explanation on the importance of understanding the whole sweep of Scripture.
N.T. Wright takes time to emphasise how we should be drawn to reading whole books, whole gospels, whole epistles, and not simply little snippets. He compares it to the reality of going to hear a Beethoven symphony and only hearing 5 bars at a time. We would feel robbed if such happened, feeling we missed out on the whole intended musical piece.
