The Bible in a Sentence

Last month Dane Orlund posed this question to a group of scholars and pastors: “What’s the Message of the Bible in One Sentence?”

Their responses were very interesting and can be found here.

If you could describe the message of the Bible in one sentence, what would you say?

Please respond in the comments. I would love to hear your answers.

p.s. Bonus: What is the meaning of the Latin phrase in one of the answers?

  1. The message of the Bible is the redemptive story of Jesus, God’s unending love and grace for an undeserving people and His guidance of how to live a life that glorifies Him.

  2. “Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written” [John 21:25]. Now, if just the things Jesus did are able to fill the pages of every book ever written and every book ever to be written, how can we describe the entire story of God’s unrelenting love for his creation in one sentence?
