It’s World Book today and my children dressed up as characters from their favourite books. I thought I would tell you a bit about my favourite book – the Bible.
The Bible is made up of 66 books. It was written by various men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible says Scripture was God-breathed. It is made up of books of the Law, Prophetic books, the Gospels and letters from Paul the apostle, amongst other things. The Bible was written originally in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.
My favourite Bible passage is Psalm 139, which talks about God’s perfect knowledge of man. The longest Psalm is Psalm 119, which is about the Word of God.
Luke, a doctor, wrote the Gospel of Luke and he also wrote the Acts of the Apostles.
The apostle Paul, a Jewish convert to Christianity and former killer of Christians, wrote a large proportion of the New Testament. He was imprisoned for preaching the gospel and wrote many of his letters from jail.
If you ask God, He will give you revelation about the Bible, which will help you to understand it. The Holy Spirit will make the Bible clear to you.
There are many different translations of the Bible available to help you.
The Proverbs contain a lot of wisdom to help you in everyday life.
If you read it regularly it will change you!
