BOOKS OF THE BIBLE

New Teaching Study Material for Old Testament


LESSON SNAPSHOT:  God wants us to know what 's in the Bible and where to find it.

There are 66 Books in the Bible.
Old Testament:  39 books
New Testament:  27 books

God says the Bible is like a sword.  Just like a sword takes practice to use, we need to practice using God's Word.  One of the ways we can do that is by knowing what God has included in the Bible and where we can find it.

Memory Verse: God has breathed life into all Scripture.  It is useful for teaching us what is true.  It is useful for correcting our mistakes.  It is useful for making our lives whole again.  It is useful for training us to do what is right.  2 Timothy 3:16 NIrV

Summary:  The first five books of the Bible tell us how the world began, what God expects of us (the law), and how God put a plan in action to set things right.

Bottom Line: The first five books of the Bible tell how God created the world and chose a special people.

Summary:  The books of history tell us what happened to God's people when they inherited the Promised Land and what happened when they forgot about God.  They teach us about God's laws and God's forgiveness.

Bottom Line:  The books of history teach us what happends when we obey or disobey God.

Summary:  The Major Prophets were men who delivered God's messages to his people.  Three of them warned the people to turn back to God.  The fourth one spoke while the children of God were in exile and reminded them that God was still in control.

Bottom Line:  The Major Prophets brought important messages to God's people

Bottom Line:  The Minor Prophets delivered important messages about God's judgment and God's plan of salvation.
