♦ Redemption: THE Master Plot ♦

~There is nothing new under the sun~

This is true of plots as much as it is of anything else. You’ll get a different list depending on who you’re reading, but here are several master* plots that pretty much any work of literature or visual media will fall within:

  • Quest
  • Adventure
  • Pursuit
  • Rescue
  • Escape
  • Revenge
  • Temptation
  • Sacrifice
  • Metamorphosis
  • Love
  • Ascension and Descension

Arguably, the greatest stories are those which have several of these master plots woven within them. And THE greatest story has them all: the Incarnation, Death, and Resurrection of Christ.

 It is the fulcrum of all history—the beginning of the end of bad things. It is truly THE master plot from which all other good stories derive their appeal.


The necessity of his incarnation was predicted in the earliest books of the Bible, thousands of years prior to his birth. The details of His birth, life, death, and resurrection were foretold hundreds of years before they happened. And His resurrected body was seen by over 500 witnesses. Praise God that this story is true!

Trembling for joy cries all creation;
What is this mystery, so great and new?
The Lord has risen from among the dead,
And Death itself He crushed with valiant foot.
Behold the cruel tyrant bound and chained,
And man made free by Him who rose!

~Melito of Sardis, 2nd century

If you have read Daniel and the Sun Sword (and liked it), please go to my Amazon page and leave a review!



This tale’s a wild ride with spiritual warfare, monsters, demons, action, adventure, coming of age, orphans, adoption, abuse, and the kitchen sink. This is Raiders of the Lost Ark in Machu Picchu. It’s action/adventure way over the top—great fun.

David Bergsland, 5-star review
