How can I get started with the Bible?
By Lars Hyldgård
The Bible is a unique book – altogether matchless. In fact, it is by far the most read book in the world. Time and again, when you read the Bible, you cannot help but think that it couldn’t have been written without God.
When you start with the Bible, it’s a good idea to begin reading the new testament. Here, you can read about what Jesus did, said, and what He meant to the people that met Him!
In the old testament, the first thing you can read might be the Book of Psalms along with the Book of Jonah, and the last part of the Book of Isaiah, chapters 53 through 66.
Keep the focus on the new testament, and let Jesus become the main character you try to understand! The Bible says, that if we want to know what God is like, we need to look at Jesus! Jesus gives us the right picture of what God is like! God became man in Jesus!
And he who sees Me sees Him (God) who sent me.
(The Gospel of John, chap. 12:45)
