The Story of Scripture

In the beginning of the Bible, the book of Genesis, God overcomes chaos by bringing order to creation. At the end of the Scriptures, in John’s Apocalypse, God defeats chaos and evil in the figures of Satan and the dragon, which were both representatives of chaos and evil in the world. So it would seem that the Bible’s canonical configuration, at least in its beginning and end, suggests that a particular theological point was made. I wonder how some parts of the OT and NT respectively might be pressed to fit into this, but very generally I can see it.

Thoughts?
