Outline of the Book of Acts

Acts is another very interesting book in the New Testament that is just after the four gospels. The book starts in a similar way to the gospel of Luke, and therefore on that basis we can conclude that this book was written by Luke, who also wrote his gospel. We get some sections in ActsContinue reading “Outline of the Book of Acts”

Miracles of Jesus Christ

This is an attempt to create a list of the miracles (or signs as they are called in the gospel of John) of the Lord Jesus Christ that are recorded in the Bible. The list will contain the name or title of the miracle and the references found in the gospels. This list is adaptedContinue reading “Miracles of Jesus Christ”

Outline of the Gospel of Mark

Mark is the second gospel, written by John Mark. He was not one of the twelve disciples. It is the shortest of the four gospels and he was perhaps the youngest writer of the four gospels and it may well have been the earliest gospel that was written. If we want to benefit from readingContinue reading “Outline of the Gospel of Mark”

Outline of the Gospel of Matthew

The New Testament in the Bible commences with the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. All these gospels present the Lord Jesus Christ in various characteristics but all the gospels stress and clearly state that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God and God the Son. Even though Matthew presents Christ mainlyContinue reading “Outline of the Gospel of Matthew”

The structure of the Bible

It is very striking and remarkable that the Bible in our hands is structured in such a way that when we look at the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch, or the books of the law, each of the five books have features and characteristics, in which all the other booksContinue reading “The structure of the Bible”

The Prophetical Books

We now come to the Prophetical books, forming a fourth division of the Bible, and the last division of the Old Testament. These books can be further divided into the Major Prophets (Isaiah to Daniel) and the Minor  Prophets (Hosea to Malachi). These books give prophecies regarding the judgment of Israel and Judah, then theContinue reading “The Prophetical Books”

Outline of Malachi

“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings” (Malachi 4:2). The last book of the Old Testament comes with a stern and serious message and warning for the people who had returned to Jerusalem from the captivity in Babylon. Interestingly, it is the last messageContinue reading “Outline of Malachi”

Outline of Zechariah

“And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced”. John 19:37. This verse is found in Zechariah 12:10, a prophecy made long time ago before the Lord Jesus Christ came to earth as a Man and went to the cross. This interesting book is filled with what is called Messianic propheciesContinue reading “Outline of Zechariah”

Outline of Haggai

It is interesting that there are three prophetical books along with three historical books that deal with the time of the post-captivity of the tribe of Judah. More interesting is that these three books are at the end of their relevant sections, i.e. the last three historical books, and the last three prophetical books. TheContinue reading “Outline of Haggai”

Outline of Zephaniah

The “minor prophets” had one or a few things in common. One of these is that they had visions or saw things. Not all of them did, but most had visions. The prophets’ names also have meanings, and when we understand the meaning of their names, this usually has a link with their messages. TheContinue reading “Outline of Zephaniah”
