The Bible contains the precious scriptures of the Christian faith. The first part ('The Old Testament') describes how humanity became separated from God (Adam & Eve); and how God worked through the Jewish people to show us his true intentions for the world.
This prepares the way for the second part ('The New Testament') in which Jesus Christ comes as the world’s Saviour, and through his great self-sacrifice, restores all who believe in him to the fullness of God’s love.
A good place to start reading the Bible is Luke’s gospel, which provides the most complete account of Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection; followed by the Acts of the Apostles, the exciting story of how thousands upon thousands came to faith as the apostles spread the good news about Jesus Christ.
