Bible Make Up

The Old Testament is made up of sections about the law. (See Genesis to Deuteronomy)

Then there is the poetry section which includes Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon.

The Major Prophets (which means they are longer writings than the others!) which include Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel.

Then there are the Minor Prophets by the names of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.

History books are Joshua, Judges, 1-2 Samuel, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther.

In the New Testament we find the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Acts is a history book.

Paul’s letters are made up of Romans, 1-2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and 1-2 Thessalonians. His personal letters to friends are 1-2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon.

General letters are found in Hebrews, James, 1-2 Peter, 1-2-3 John, Jude and Revelation.

Now we know what the Bible is made of. Let me ask what has the Bible made of you?

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what. (Hebrews 4:12,13 MSG)

Prayer- Lord, help us to feel your words, deep within our souls so that the change you describe becomes real in us; for Christ’s sake. Amen.
