Before you can begin to accurately understand the Bible, it is a tremendous help to get the correct meaning of it. Fortunately this is really easy since the Bible from it's beginning and all the way through to it's conclusion, from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 can be summed up in one simple phrase, and that is this.

The Bible is about the vindication of Jehovah God's name through the ransom sacrifice of Christ Jesus.

That's it. If you can wrap your head around that, you can begin to have an accurate understanding of the Bible as a whole.

A simple explanation to help you understand. Jehovah God, the grand creator, has rightful sovereignty over all of his creation, but this sovereignty was challenged by Satan's deceiving of Eve and the subsequent sin of Adam. The question of his sovereignty raised, and he being so inclined to justice, he allowed in all fairness for that issue to be settled.

It amounts to the question, does Jehovah have the sovereign right to decide what is best for mankind, or will man, in his imperfect state without Jehovah's guidance and protection, destroy himself, thus thwarting God's purpose for man to live forever on Paradise Earth as Jehovah intended?
