The Historical Books

Having seen the order of the first five books of the Bible, we now begin with the historical books – a second division in the Bible. First, we had a background about the beginning of the earth (Genesis). Then there was the redemption of the children of Israel (Exodus). Then followed God’s holiness and HisContinue reading “The Historical Books”

Outline of Ezekiel

The book of Ezekiel is a very interesting book among the prophetical books section in our Bible. Ezekiel was from a priestly family, so he was, in fact, a priest (chapter 1:3). Both Ezekiel and Jeremiah had similar ministries and both books present some prophetical types and point to Israel’s future restoration.

Outline of Isaiah

Perhaps most Christians are thinking, or asking the question, why should I read the book of Isaiah? This book is just a prophecy about Israel and judgement for their disobedience, so it has nothing to do with me as a Christian. Dear reader, if you treat this book as part of the divine word ofContinue reading “Outline of Isaiah”

Outline of the Song of Solomon

This amazing and interesting book states at the very beginning that it is the ‘song of songs, which is Solomon’s’.

The book is written in Hebrew poetry and is known asContinue reading “Outline of the Song of Solomon”

In the Beginning

The very first verse in the Word of God commences with the words, “in the beginning”. What happened?

There are about four beginnings in the Bible that I would like toContinue reading “In the Beginning”

The Rich Young Ruler

The story of the rich young ruler is a well-known story in the Bible, and no wonder, it is found in the gospels of Matthew (chapter 19), Mark (chapter 10) and Luke (chapter 18). Each of the gospels tell this scene with a small difference, but we see a complete picture of the discourse betweenContinue reading “The Rich Young Ruler”

The thief on the cross

Luke 23:39-43 – ‘and one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds:Continue reading “The thief on the cross”
