Getting a Handle on the Bible


Intro to the Getting a Handle on the Bible study

We are startibng our study with an overview of the Bible.  Many already know this asic information but for some, this will be new and very helpful.

The Pentateuch - Genesis through Deuteronomy

We will learn all about the first five books of the Bible, including the author and ways to remember what these books are all about.

The 12 Books of Old Testament History

They say that if you don't pay attention to history, you're doomed to repeat it.  Obviously God wanted us to know the history of the nation of Israel so we can learn from it.

The Poetic Books of the Bible

The whole Bible is God's Word to us, but some of it is wriiten in prose while some is written in poetic rhythm and rhyme (Hebrew version, of course).

The Prophets

There are 17 prophetic books, some major and some minor, but prophecies can be found in other books as well.

The Gospels and New Testament History

The four gospels are Mathhew, Mark, Luke and John, and the book of NT. history is obviously Acts..
