2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The Bible is God’s love letter to us. The Holy Bible contains 66 books, some long (Psalms), some short (3 John). The Bible reveals the Lord’s Word, and helps those whom believe to grow closer to Him. Just like the body needs physical food, so too does the spirit need spiritual food. Only God and His Word can satisfy our spirit, and grow us in fellowship with Him. Some Christians view the Bible as bitter-sweet, bitter because of its judgement, but at the same time sweet of promises.
The Bible’s two major sections are the Old and New Testaments. Some refer to the Old Testament as the Hebrew Scriptures, and the New Testament as the Greek Scriptures. In any case, the Old Testament/Hebrew Scriptures contains 39 books, 929 chapters, 23,214 verses, 593,493 words, the longest book being Psalms, shortest being Obadiah (3rd shorted book of the Bible.). On the other hand, the New Testament/Greek Scriptures contains 27 books, 260 chapters, 7,959 verses, 181,253 words, longest book Acts, shortest 3 John. It is in the New Testament/Greek Scriptures where the four books of the Gospels are found (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). The word Gospel means good news, it contains the writings on the life/works of Jesus the Saviour.
The most famous scripture of all time, and probably the one that is memorized first by many.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
