1 The Great Scheme of Redemption IntroductionWhat is the Scheme of Redemption
2 In order to understand fully and perfectly any one part or element of a system, it is necessary to have, in the first place, a general and comprehensive knowledge of the whole.
3 The Bible is a unit.It’s primary, general and ultimate objective is to develop one great and glorious System of Devine Wisdom (as the Mystery revealed Eph. 3:10) to reveal justice, goodness, mercy, and love through Jesus Christ for the redemption of fallen man (Romans 5:12, 18-19; I Cor. 15:21)
4 Romans 5: 12, 18-19 I Corinthians 15:21 12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—18 Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.I Corinthians 15:2121 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
