Segment One: The Bible is mysterious because it is a book of life, not merely a book of teaching, history, or morality. What it shows us is that God’s eternal purpose is to impart Himself into as life to bring us into relation with Himself, so that we may become His expression.

Segment Two: Because the Bible is a book of life, it is mysterious, and we need to learn how to come to it in a proper way. In this segment Mark Jordan joins us to share that, while we treasure the black and white words of the Bible, we need to exercise ourselves to see more in the Bible than only what is on the surface. We can do this because now Christ has appeared, showing us that the entire Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, is really about Himself.
