Basic Bible Teaching


The Bible is the most important book ever written. It is the Word of God. He told the men who wrote it what they must write down.

The Bible is not one book. It is a collection of 66 books written at different times, by different men. It is divided into two parts that are called testaments.

The Old Testament has 39 books.

The New Testament has 27 books.

The word "Testament" means 'agreement' or 'covenant'. The Bible tells us about agreements made between God and men. There is an Old Agreement and a New Agreement.

At the beginning of the Bible is a list of all the names of the 66 books. It will help you in your studies if you can learn the order of the books.

Each book is divided into chapters and each chapter into verses. When you look for a verse or quotation from the Bible, it will be given by the book, then the chapter, and then the verse. For example: John, chapter 3, verse 16. In these lessons this will be written as "John 3:16".

John 3:16:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Now look up this verse for yourself. Try to learn it.

The books of the Old Testament were written over a long period of time. A man called Moses wrote the earliest books about 1400 years before Jesus Christ was born. We write this as BC 1400. A man called Malachi wrote the last book in the Old Testament about BC 400. The Old Testament took about 1000 years to write all 39 books.
