Theme of Redemption

The central theme of the Bible, the theme about which every other clusters, is the redemption plan, the restoration in the human soul of the image of God. From the first intimation of hope in the sentence pronounced in Eden to that last glorious promise of the Revelation—“They shall see His face; and His name shall be on their foreheads” (Revelation 22:4)—the burden of every book and every passage of the Bible is the unfolding of this wondrous theme—uplifting humanity—the power of God “who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57. TEd 75.1

People who grasp this thought have before them an infinite field for study. They have the key that will unlock to them the whole treasure house of God’s Word. TEd 75.2

The science of redemption is the science of all sciences, the science that is the study of angels and all the intelligences of the unfallen worlds. It is the science that engages the attention of our Lord and Savior, the science that will be the study of God’s redeemed throughout endless ages. This is the highest study in which it is possible for mortals to engage. It will quicken the mind and uplift the soul as no other study can. TEd 75.3

The creative energy that called the worlds into existence is in the Word of God. This word imparts power; it begets life. Every command is a promise; accepted by the will and received into the soul, it brings with it the life of the Infinite One. It transforms the nature and recreates the soul in the image of God. TEd 75.4
