``Scarlet Thread of Redemption'': Part 2 (NT)
The whole Bible is not 66 separate books, but one book with a
consistent message throughout. Although transcribed by many different authors
in different countries with different styles across over a thousand years, the
Bible is inspired by the One God, and the whole Bible contains the message of
Jesus' substitutionary sacrifice for us.
This consistent message
woven throughout the Bible has been called the "Scarlet Thread of Redemption".
