Transcript of Bible Overview

What the Bible is All About What is it? 66 books 40 Contributors Composed over a span of 1600 years!! 1 Architect Jesus Christ Old Testament New Testament Books of History Books of Poetry Books of Prophecy Major prophets Minor prophets Psalms Proverbs Song of Solomon (also called Song of Songs) Books of the Law Numbers Genesis Exodus Leviticus Deuteronomy Joshua Judges Ruth 1 Samuel 2 Samuel 1 Kings 2 Kings 1 Chronicles 2 Chronicles Hosea Joel Amos Obadiah Jonah Micah Nahum Do the BOP! Habakkuk Zephaniah Haggai Zechariah Malachi Isaiah Ezekiel Jeremiah Lamentations Daniel Covenant - an agreement, in this case

righteousness of humans, but on the
goodness and grace of God. The Gospels Matthew Mark Luke John The Bible is centered around these 4 books. The preceeding 39 books give us the reason
the events recorded in the Gospels are necessary. The ensuing 23 books give us an idea
of what actually happened and how it rocked the world. Book of History Acts The record of how the early church carried
out it's commandment, the introduction
of our Comforter, the Holy Spirit and how
the early churches grew despite persecution. Church Epistles Pastoral Epistles Personal Epistles General Epistles Romans 1 & 2 Corinthians 1 & 2 Thessalonians Galatians Ephesians Philippians Colossians 1 & 2 Timothy Titus Much of the way our churches are set up today is based upon the contents of these books.
