Steve Holmes – The Twitter Bible

Steve is presently teaching at the University of St Andrews.

He has shared with us today on Facebook his take at the challenge of summarising the core of the Bible message within the Twitter constrains (140 characters). Here it is:

We failed. God came in Jesus. We rejected.
God triumphed. Church began. God will win.

Does any of you have other suggestions?

As for me, as a ‘man of many words’ :-(, I don’t twitter. 🙂
