Bible Basics

You wouldn’t think a book written thousands of years ago would be able to help you deal with today’s problems, but that’s exactly what the Bible does. It can help you be a better person, discover the blessings of obedience to God’s commandments, and be true to your beliefs even in the face of resistance. Most of all, you can learn about our Savior Jesus Christ, who sacrificed Himself for all of us.

The Old Testament

The Bible consists of two main sections, each of which are made up of many smaller books. The first section, the Old Testament, tells of people who lived many years before Jesus’s birth. God gave them laws and procedures to prepare them for the coming of the Savior.

The New Testament

The New Testament begins with Jesus’s birth and continues with His ministry, death, and Resurrection. It concludes with the writings of people whom Jesus sent out to teach His gospel to the world. During His life, Jesus fulfilled the laws God had given to earlier people and taught a higher law based on love. He taught us how to find happiness by serving others, obeying God’s commandments, and leaving our mistakes behind.
