Revelation of God's redemptive plan and purpose 

Rescue of man from his dilemma by the grace of God


Ephesians 1:10  That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

Ephesians 1:12  That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

You pretty much stole my thunder.

The bible deals with God's plan to redeem man then then His carrying out that rescue.

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  Galatians 4:4

And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:15

But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; Titus 1:3

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31​

"Were I asked to focus the New Testament message in three words, my proposal would be adoption through propitiation, and I do not expect ever to meet a richer or more pregnant summary of the gospel than that." -J.I. Packer ("He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.") 1 John 2:2 ESV
