I Am Reading the Bible

The Word of God 187 People

    The Patriarchs

    Ok..so I've now completed reading Genesis and have learnt some really interesting trivia. Jacob was 70 when he ran from Esau! Joseph was in prison 13 years or more and he still never lost hope. Sarah laughed sceptically when told of Isaac's birth, Abraham laughed with joy and...

    Leviticus..........

    Currently I'm in the begining of Leviticus I had almost wanted to stop because of all the chapters about how to build the ark of the covenant and the table it goes on and the cloth temple curtains and how to make the priests robs and chest-pieces and what you can and...

    Habakkuk

    I just finished Habakkuk, I never realized this was a book in the bible or the few previous books before it. Maybe because the authors were prophets my church didnt really teach from them? I  have 5 more books to go till I get to the New testament.

    The Bible Is A Great Book

    Although I doubt a lot about the historical aspects of the Bible in the Tanaj (old testament), I find the wisdom books really helping; and the New Testament is really enthusiastic, the character of Jesus is simply amazing; I just want to know what the right way to approach God is...

    Matthew, New Testament

    Im in the book of Matthew now, it took awhile but I finally moved on to the New testament. Im looking at my bible and realizing the New testament is significantly smaller than the Old testament. Im at the part where Jesus is telling his disciples that he has to go to Jerusalem...

    The Bible Is God'S Love Letter To Us.

    I haven't read the entire books in the bible. I've read more accounts in the new testament than in the old testament. I can say Bible is the book for all seasons. I feel spiritual bliss whenever I read and meditate in the Word of God. P. S. Anyone who is feeling lost...

    An Understanding

    I've started with Philippians and the strong message for me so far has been - thanksgiving and rejoicing. Neither of which I have been doing a lot of in recent days. The easy things, of course I can whole-heartedly give thanks for. But, when I hit the problem areas, or people...

    No Grumbling????? Be Serious!

    OK..so  now, I'm in my third week of studying the Bible and I'm already being tested! The thanksgiving lesson was a reminder and I was able to apply it fairly easily. And then, Paul hits me with the whammy. You are to serve God without 'grumbling or questioning'. The...

    Currently In New Testament

    I'm in the middle of the acts chapter. As a Christian I'm probably biased but this doesn't seem like a work of fiction to me. Sorry. Atleast when I'm finished reading, I'll be knowledgeable in this section.

    How To Start?

    I have started a few times before, but I seemed to do the 'skimming' technique, so nothing that I read actually stays in my head. What book should I start at, when should I read the bible, and how can I understand it to the best of my ability? Thanks!
