To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God’s story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural. This 7-session video study will open your eyes to God’s master-plan unfolding through the life and ministry of Jesus. Discover the joy that comes as you align your story with God’s.
