What are we talking about when we say we need a bird’s-eye view of a particular situation? Well, that’s not too hard to imagine. It’s the view a bird gets of the ground below when it is flying high.

It is very easy to look at the various components of the Bible and come to the wrong conclusion that we know what they mean, unless we are helped to see how these components relate to the larger picture the Bible is trying to communicate to us. It can result in misunderstanding the real message of the part we have been either reading or studying. It’s like looking at part of a jigsaw puzzle and thinking you know what the whole picture is all about.
