The Bible contains everything we need to know for time and eternity. It’s the wisdom of God distilled for human consumption.
It’s the mind of Christ between two covers; knowledge that enlightens, advice that counsels, food that feeds, milk that nourishes, honey that sweetens, gold that enriches, a sword that defends, a hammer that molds us, and a lamp that guides us.
Every word of the Bible was penned by a person like you or me, yet each word was breathed out by God as holy men of old spoke as the Spirit moved them.
The resulting Book is unique, inspired, infallible, inerrant, never-failing, ever-reviving, as old as relevant as tomorrow’s headlines, and forever established in heaven.
So why don’t we read it more? A recent survey reported that 66% of the population agrees that the Bible contains everything we need to know for a meaningful life. But according to another poll, only 19% reads the Bible daily.
Perhaps we’re overwhelmed with its contents, thinking, “I just don’t understand the Bible. It’s confusing. I don’t know how it’s put together or what it means.”
Well, here’s a resource to help, whether you’re new to God’s Word or a veteran student. The following pages provide the brief summary of each book in the Bible – Genesis to Revelation – what it means and what it means to you.
These 66 digests give you each book in a nutshell, whether you’re visiting well-known locations like John and Romans or seldom-visited sites like Jude, Obadiah, or Leviticus.
Jesus said we shouldn’t live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. He could have said, “every book,” for God has divided His lessons to us into 66 segments – none of which should be missed.
May blessings abound to you times sixty-six as you open and obey God’s Word day by day!
