The Bible is a collection of 66 separated books and letters written over a period of 1,500 years, culminating approximately 100 years after Christ’s death and resurrection.
It is devided into the Old Testament (first 39 books) and the New Testament (last 27 books).
There were many different writers, who lived and wrote in different countries.
They came from different walks of life and different social positions. Most of them had no contact with each other.
Christians believe that the Bible is the Word of God, because the Lord Jesus Christ believed it to be so. He constantly referred to the Old Testament in His teachings.
In every case His words show that He believed in it’s historic accurancy and Divine authority.
The Bible has been now translated into over 1,600 languages and dialects. It is a book unsurpassed in beauty and power of expression, by any other book.
It is not primarily a book of history, science, philosophy, but it’s stories of God dealings with individuals and nations.
Our Saviour – Jesus Christ came to this earth, He is rejected and crucified, but rises from the dead in triumph.
He sends His disciples out in the power of the Holy Spirit to carry His message of Love and Forgiveness to the four corners of the earth.
The Book of Revelation, which is the last book in the Bible, speaks about warnings regarding the consequences of rejecting God’s light and Love and describes the future of the Radeemed in Heaven.
