To Use Your Bible
you are not sure how to look up books, chapters, and verses in
your Bible, please read on!
Testament has 39 books starting with the book of Genesis through
the book of Malachi.
New Testament has 27 books starting with the book of Matthew and
ending with Revelation.
Unlike other books, you do
not have to start at the first book of the Bible and read from
the beginning to the end. I would highly suggest that you start
with the New Testament and first read the whole New Testament
before you start in the Old Testament. The Old Testament is also
very important, but for new Christians, the New Testament
is a good place
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
- are called
the Gospels and they are on the life of Jesus Christ. It is important
to start reading one of these books first.
Acts - is
about how the early church got started and how the good news of
Jesus Christ was shared with others.
Romans through Jude
- are called the Epistles and teach us how to obey Jesus Christ
and what we are in Him.
- the last book of
the Bible is about things and events that will happen in the future.
If you are asked to turn to John
14:6 for example:
First: Find the book of John (In the
Second: Look for Chapter 14 in the book
of John (large numbers).
Third: After you find John 14 look
for verse 6 (small numbers).
you have found it,it should read close to the following:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no
man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
more practice try looking up Revelation 3:20
you have found it, it should read close to the following:
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice,
and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him,
and he with me.
You will be greatly
blessed as you read and study God's Word. Ask God to help you understand
His word and give you knowledge, wisdom, and revelation of Him. He will be faithful to help you
understand His Word when you seek Him with all your heart.
to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not
to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (Timothy
