Let’s try something.
For a couple of days, and then once in awhile, I’m going to try to describe one of those ah-ha moments of insight that I think has helped me better understand the Bible.
My hope is that you will respond by sharing with us one or more of your own discoveries as well.
The Story “Books” of the Bible
I was well down the road when I learned that the storyline of the Bible could be found in 14 of its 66 books. It was an eye-opener for me to see that the unfolding drama of the Old Testament is found in 11 of its 39 “books”:
- 1 Samuel
- 2 Samuel
- 1 Kings
- 2 Kings
The continuing rest of the story can be found in 3 of the 27 “books” of the New Testament:
- A Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John)
OK, now I’d like to hear from you. Before I describe something else that was an ah-ha moment for me, what would you consider to be an important discovery that has helped you understand the most important book ever written?
