I have talked a lot about the metanarrative, that is the big story, of scripture as well as the mission of God but strangely enough not together in one dedicated piece. In this lecture New Testament scholar and theologian N.T. Wright does just that. The Bible a lot of the times seems like a difficult, disjointed text. Understanding the story of God in scripture, what his aims are and how humans figure into his agenda are the key to understanding the canon of Holy Scripture.
