Mark Lanier: Better Bible Studies - Exile - Chapter 8

"Mark continues with a focus on the theme of exile—the state or period of forced absence from one’s home or country. 1. The “exile” began with the exile from the garden to restoration with God woven throughout the Bible. Sin resulted in exile. God had to clean us up. 2. Mark reviewed additional passages that deal with exile including echoes of creation and re-creation. 3. Points for home: Give purpose and meaning in life’s storms. His presence is in the exile. Help value our past and future. God will end all exiles. Listen to Mark show through Scripture how God chose before Genesis how He’d restore His people to Him for eternity. Exile or stories of banishment and exile are woven throughout Scripture. We are all exiled from God until we accept Jesus’ sacrifice and follow Him."
