THE BIBLE

THE BIBLE IS NOT PRIMARILY A BOOK OF HISTORY.
IT IS "HIS STORY," THE STORY OF GOD.

OVERVIEW

THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD THAT GUIDES BELIEFS AND ACTIONS OF AN INDIVIDUAL.

HOW DO WE KNOW GOD? HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND AND SEE THE WORLD WE LIVE IN? HOW DO WE GRASP WHERE WE CAME FROM AND WHY WE ARE HERE? HOW DO WE KNOW WHERE THIS STORY IS ULTIMATELY HEADING? THE ANSWER IS PROFOUND – GOD REVEALS HIMSELF AND HIS GRAND PLAN TO US. OUR ROLE IS TO LISTEN AND BELIEVE.

BY SIMPLY LOOKING AT NATURE AND THE WORLD AROUND US, WE CAN CONCLUDE THERE IS A GOD. BUT HOW DO WE LEARN ABOUT THIS GOD? HOW DO WE COME INTO FULL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? WHAT ARE HIS PLANS AND PURPOSES FOR US? WHAT ARE THE PRINCIPLES HE WANTS US TO LIVE BY TO GUIDE US INTO HIS TRUTH? THE ANSWER TO ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS IS FOUND IN GOD’S REVELATION TO US – THE BIBLE.

THE BIBLE REPEATEDLY RECORDS THAT GOD COMMUNICATED TO HIS PEOPLE AT SPECIFIC TIMES WITH SPECIFIC MESSAGES. THE WORD OF THE LORD WAS ALWAYS GIVEN TO HIS PEOPLE TO REVEAL HIS PLAN FOR THEM AND FOR ALL HUMANITY. GOD REVEALED HIS STORY BECAUSE HE LOVES US.

THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN BY MULTIPLE AUTHORS (40) IN A SPAN OF 1500 YEARS ACCORDING TO MANY SCHOLARS. IT CONSISTS OF 66 BOOKS IN TOTAL AND IS DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS NAMELY ‘THE OLD TESTAMENT’ CONSISTING OF 36 BOOKS AND ‘THE NEW TESTAMENT’ CONSISTING OF 27 BOOKS. MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO IS THAT THE OLD TESTAMENT DEALS WITH FOUNDATION OF EVERYTHING BEFORE THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE OTHER HAND THE NEW TESTAMENT DEALS WITH THE HAPPENINGS AFTER THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST AND THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD. 

EVERYTHING RIGHT FROM THE GENESIS OF THE UNIVERSE TO THE RISE AND FALL OF KINGDOMS AND PROPHECIES MADE BY THE NUMEROUS PROPHETS.

EVERYTHING FROM BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST TO SALVATION, THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECIES, RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING!
