CENTRALTRUTH: The most important relationship you can have in this life is with God. Through reading the Bible you come to understand what God is like — His thoughts, his plans and His promises for you.

INTRODUCTION: The word of God – the Holy Bible is God’s special Book. It is not like other books, but is a super natural Book. It was written by many different people, who wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. 2 Timothy 3:16 “ All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [a]instruction in righteousness

The Bible is one of the oldest books in the World. Yet it is still the most modern book in the World today, for in it we find the answers to life’s greatest questions:

  • Where did I come from?
  • Why am I here?
  • Where will I go?

The bible is divided into two sections; the Old Testament and the New Testament.

The Old Testament tell us about God’s work with His people before the birth of Jesus.

The New Testament tell us about Jesus Birth, His life, His great Ministry of healing and forgiveness for sick and sinful people, His death on a cross, His being raised from dead and his ascension (going back to Heaven).
