What is the main thrust of the message of the Bible?

The main message of the Bible is that God created us. We as a human race do not know God personally because of our sin and disobedience. Ultimately God will hold us accountable for our beliefs and behavior on the great judgment day. This all sounds depressing and it would be if the rest of the story was not know. The rest is this: God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world 2008 years ago. History and the Bible record His life, death, resurrection and return to heaven. Jesus was perfect and unique and for 33 years he lived on this planet providing evidence that he was God (all His miracles and teachings). The Bible records His death and coming to life again after three days (the Bible calls it resurrection). The claims of the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) are that Jesus paid the full price God demanded in payment for human sin. God offers to all people personal forgiveness and the removal of our legal guilt before Him when we turn from our sin to God and trust Him for salvation.
