This Bible Overview is perfect for the serious student or for a friend who has never read the Bible and would like to grasp its message. Along with the inside chart, the other pages contains a brief summary of the Bible in 4 sections called The Wooing God, Jesus Christ the Messiah, The Old and New Testaments, and How to Understand the Bible.
The inside chart contains the Bible’s timeline at a glance, so that you can see how each book relates to the entire Bible. All 66 books of the Bible are indicated with red letters. Starting at the top of the chart, the major Old Testament stories are listed in chronological order in the first three lines followed by a list of the judges. Next, the nation of Israel moved from a theocracy with judges to a monarchy with kings. Next, the monarchy divided into the northern and southern kingdoms. Each king in each of the two kingdoms is named, along with more details and the respective Bible references. Listed to the right of each kingdom are the prophets who spoke to those kingdoms. The themes of their messages are indicated with blue letters. Relevant empires and the New Testament are also included on this chart.
Genre is the literary type of a book. For example, some books of the Bible are written in the genre of a narrative with characters and plots that tell of real events in which we see God at work. Other portions contain law, poetry, wisdom, the cries of the prophets, and epistles of instruction and encouragement.
This document explains why it is important to understand Bible genres. It includes: examples of how this understanding helps us to rightly apply Scripture; a list of the descriptions of each Bible genre; and a list of each book of the Bible with their respective genres and themes.
This 4-page study tool summarizes the book of Hebrews. It can be used for personal and weekly group study. This book was written to wean Jewish believers from dependence on the law of Moses and to teach them (and us) to live in the New Covenant in Jesus their Messiah by RESTING, not in their own works for salvation, but in His power to do His work in and through them. (Hebrews 4:9-11)
Large crimson letters represent the sections of the book. All Scripture references are included, along with the author’s comparisons or other details.
The book of Hebrews contains many exhortations that I call SEEs (Strong Encouragement and Exhortations). The SEEs are noted in bright blue letters, along with reasons to heed them. When we heed the SEEs, we see Him more clearly and, thus, relate to Him more intimately. The SEEs can be read devotionally each day!
