What Sort Of A Picture Do We End Up With When We Put Scriptures Together From The Bible Like A Jig-Saw Puzzle

When the many scriptures in the Bible are put together like a jig-saw puzzle, we end with a picture that goes something like this:

Man has no ability to overcome death (Rom. 5:17),
 but he has the ability to choose (Jos. 24:15)
and be as good a person as possible (Rom. 5:7);
only this will not save him because He needs to overcome death (Rom. 5:21).
Moreover, whatever righteousness a person may claim (Rom. 2:23),
when measured against God's standard (the Ten Commandments) this has to hold up (John 5:45).
If anybody fails by one iota or one dot (Mat. 5:18),
then that person cannot claim to be as righteous as God (Rom. 3:10).
Hence, all men sin and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23).
Humans sin and have no power over death, but those who seek justice, need to seek the Lord God of the Universe (Pro. 28:5),
because there is no other Judge. For as Abraham put it to the Lord God, "Shall not the Judge of the Earth do right" (Gen. 18:25).
And He did:  having died for the ungodly (Rom 5:6),
He who knew no sin, became sin on the Cross, so those who have sinned could become the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21)
through His righteousness which was bequeathed in His will as an inheritance (Heb. 9:15-17)
for those who believe that the Son of God has come in the flesh (1 John 4:2),
 and paid the redemption price for sin (Col. 1:14),
 and has been raised from the dead (1 Cor. 15:12-14).
For this is the will of God that whoever sees Jesus (Heb. 12:2)
and believes in the Him (John 3.:16),
He will raise from the dead at the last day (John 6:40).

Romans 5:17 World English Bible (WEB)
For if by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; so much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ.

Joshua 24:15  (WEB)
If it seems evil to you to serve Yahweh, choose today whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve Yahweh.”

Romans 5:7  (WEB)
For one will hardly die for a righteous man. Yet perhaps for a righteous person someone would even dare to die.

Romans 5:21  (WEB)
that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 Romans 2:23 (WEB)
23 You who glory in the law, through your disobedience of the law do you dishonor God?

John 5:45  (WEB)
“Don’t think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you, even Moses, on whom you have set your hope.

For most certainly, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one smallest letter[a] or one tiny pen stroke[b] shall in any way pass away from the law, until all things are accomplished.

10 As it is written,“There is no one righteous;   no, not one.

Evil men don’t understand justice; but those who seek Yahweh understand it fully.

Be it far from you to do things like that, to kill the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be like the wicked. May that be far from you. Shouldn’t the Judge of all the earth do right?”

Romans 5:6  (WEB)
For while we were yet weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

2 Corinthians 5:21 (WEB)
For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Genesis 9:15-17 (WEB)
and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

1 John 4:2  (WEB)
By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

Colossians 1:14 World English Bible (WEB)
 in whom we have our redemption,[a] the forgiveness of our sins;

1 Corinthians 15:12-14 World English Bible (WEB)
Now if Christ is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised. 14 If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, and your faith also is in vain.

Hebrews 12:2 World English Bible (WEB)
looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

John 3:15-16 World English Bible (WEB)

John 6:40 World English Bible (WEB)
This is the will of the one who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
