David Jeremiah introduces it to us by noting….The Bible contains everything we need to know what time and eternity. It’s the wisdom of God distilled for human consumption. It’s the mind of Christ between two covers; knowledge that it lightens, advise that councils, food feeds, milk that nourishes, honey that sweetens, gold and riches, a word that defense, a hammer that molds us, and a lamp that guides us.
Every word of the Bible was penned by a person like you or me, yet each word with weed out by God is holy man of the old smoke as a spirit move them the resulting book is unique, inspired, infallible, and hear it, never failing, ever reviving, as old as antiquity and as relevant as tomorrow’s headlines, and forever established in heaven….

We begin with the books of the old testament:
1.Genesis: Many modern words like genes, genetics, generations, and genealogy, come from the same root word as Genesis, meaning origin or creation. In it we have the beginning of the Universe, the human race, sin,; the beginning of God’s program of redemption and the Jewish pimple, who were the ones through whom God would bring the Messiah to the world.
The first eleven chapters of Genesis focus on primeval history, while the rest of the book gives patriarchal history—the story of Abraham and his descendants. Genesis 1-50 tells of the four great persons—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.
The book of Genesis sets the stage for the entire biblical story and provides the foundational lessons for us. As we read this book we are reminded that no matter what life brings or how evil intrudes, God has a plan; and His ultimate plan cannot be frustrated. Many of the events recorded in Genesis permanently affected life on earth. Yet in spite of those epic events, God’s plan remained on schedule. We can trust His ability to make sense of our lives even if our world appears to be upside down. When we read the book of Genesis , we are reminded that our Creator-God is sovereign and He is always in control-from beginning to end, from Genesis to Revelation.
