Knowing His Great Name
by Michael and Rachel Craddock
There is no more awe-inspiring and incomprehensible truth than the truth that I am known by God. It is at the same time simple to state and impossible to exhaust
The unfolding story of Scripture shows us the greatness of the God we are privileged to know. As the Bible broadens our view of who God is, it simultaneously deepens our gratitude for the fact that such a God has chosen to make Himself known to us. Becoming secure and confident in this knowledge will radically shape how we view ourselves (identity) and transform how we relate to others (community).
This is an invitation to come alongside us into the stories where God’s character is revealed.
Each of the twelve units is composed of four major sections: Knowing the Context (the Old Testament story in which the name is given), Knowing His Great Name (the meaning of the name and God’s attributes and character), Knowing the Christ Connection (manifestation in the New Testament), Knowing Yourself and Being Known (how God’s name affects personal identity and living in community).
