Excellent book, God's Word, good Kindle navigation
on 28 September 2017
NIV a clear modern English translation, faithful to original Hebrew (most Old Testament or OT) and Greek (New Testament, or NT).
The Bible is divided into 66 portions of books, some if which are very short.
Old Testament: Pre Jesus, from Creation to about 400yrs before Jesus. Mainly centred to Israel and their relationship with God.
New Testament: Jesus's life, establishment of early church, with a number of letters to early churches, ending in Revelation, a book looking to the end times.
Good starting point: One 4 accounts of Jesus life, ie one of 1st four books in NT.
Genesis, in OT, describing creation, and early beginnings of Israeli nation. Go on to Exodus, Leviticus is hard and can be skipped over, along with chuncks of Numbers. Read the beginning and end of Deuteronomy, history resumes in Joshua.
Kindle version has excellent navigation from Contents page, and within book. Very well thought out, and easy to use.
