Genesis 1 starts with the story of how God made the world in six days. (Genesis 1-2): God formed light, stars, the sun, the moon, birds, land, trees, and the sea.

Genesis 2-3 tells the story of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve were the first humans that God made. He placed them in the Garden of Eden where they enjoyed the animals and plants that God had provided. However, they had to leave the garden after Satan caused them to disobey God and commit the first sin. (Genesis 2-3)

The rest of Genesis showed how God interacted with people. It included the stories of Noah (Genesis 7), the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11), Abraham (Genesis 12-25), Isaac (Genesis 21-35), Jacob (Genesis 25-36), and Joseph (Genesis 37-50).

Exodus means the "Great Exit". The book tells the story of the life of Moses and how the Israelites left Egypt.

It also includes the story of how God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. These were rules for how God wanted the Israelites to live.

Exodus also includes the stories of how God performed many miracles for the Israelites while they journeyed through the desert. God provided for them and kept them safe.
3. Psalms

Answer: Old Testament

The book of Psalms is typically found in the middle of most Bibles. It contains songs and praises written to God.

Many of the psalms were written by King David, a shepherd boy who eventually became the king of Israel. He wrote about how God protected him, comforted him, forgave him, and blessed him in many situations.

One of David's most famous Psalms was Psalm 23, which began, "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul." (Psalm 23:1-3, NIV)

David knew that God was always with him and he didn't have to be afraid. (Psalm 23:4)

Psalms also included songs written by Moses, David's chief musician Asaph, and the Israelites during times of captivity. They told how God delivered them from great battles and was faithful to them during times of trouble.
4. Proverbs

Answer: Old Testament

Proverbs is a book of wise sayings believed to have been written by King Solomon.

According to 1 Kings 3:7, Solomon was very young when he became king. He wanted to be as wise as his father David. God appeared to him in a dream and told him, "Whatever you ask for, I will give it to you." Solomon asked God for wisdom. God was so impressed, that He told Solomon, "Because you did not ask for money, fame, or victory against your enemies, I will give you wisdom and all of those things." (1 Kings 3:10-15)

According to the book of 1 Kings, many people came to hear Solomon's wisdom, including the Queen of Sheba. (1 Kings 10:1-13)

Solomon wrote down many of the wise sayings that he used to rule in the book of Proverbs. Many people still use his sayings today.

One of Solomon's wise sayings is found in Proverbs 3:13-14 (NIV),
"Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold."
5. Isaiah

Answer: Old Testament

Isaiah was an Old Testament prophet. He is known as one of the major prophets of the Bible.

During Isaiah's life, the Jews were going through many hardships. According to the book of Isaiah, Isaiah saw prophets and kings that turned the people's hearts away from God. He saw many leaders who told the Jews false promises.

Isaiah told the Jews many prophecies about the coming of a savior, known as the Messiah.

Isaiah told them that the Messiah would surprise many and come as a child. "For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6, NIV)
6. Matthew

Answer: New Testament

Matthew is the first book of the New Testament (in the order in which they appear, not in the order of writing). It tells the story of the life of Jesus to the Jews, from the viewpoint of Matthew, one of Jesus' disciples.

Matthew included many scriptures from prophets of the Old Testament to help the Jews recognize who Jesus was.

Matthew began his gospel by covering the history of Jesus' family and Jesus' birth. He told how Joseph was visited by an angel, who told him Jesus would be the son of God. He mentions all this was done to fulfill the prophecy, "They will call him Immanuel". (Matthew 1:23)

Matthew also told how Herod was visited by wise men. The king tried to kill all the babies when he heard the wise men were seeking a baby king. When Jesus and his family escaped to Egypt, Matthew included the prophecy of how Jesus would be called out of Egypt. (Matthew 2:14-15)

Matthew told about the acts of Jesus, including Jesus' first miracle (Matthew 8), how Jesus walked on water (Matthew 14:22-33), and how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead (Matthew 19:23-25).

Ultimately Matthew told about how Jesus gave his life on the cross (Matthew 27:32-56) and came back to life again (Matthew 28).
7. Romans

Answer: New Testament

In the Christian Bible, Romans is the first book listed as written by the Apostle Paul.

Paul wrote many books to the churches to encourage their faith. He wrote over two-thirds of the New Testament.

In Romans, Paul acknowledges that everyone is human and needs grace. (Romans 3:23-24)

Paul tells the Romans that Christ offers grace freely and covers everyone through his sacrifice on Calvary. (Romans 3:24)

Paul tells the Romans, in Romans 8, that there is no shame for those that are covered by Jesus, because Jesus gives life and sets them free from sin. (Romans 8:1)
8. Acts

Answer: New Testament

The book of Acts records the acts of the apostles and the first church.

The apostle Luke wrote the books of Luke and Acts to witness to his friend, Theophilus.

Acts begins with the day of Pentecost, where the disciples and first followers of Jesus were filled with the Holy Ghost. They began to tell other people about the wonderful things Jesus had done and baptized people in His name. (Acts 2)

According to Acts, after the day of Pentecost, the apostles performed several miracles. In Acts 3, Peter and John healed a lame man at the temple. On another occasion, Peter prayed for a lady named Dorcas and she was raised back to life (Acts 9:36-41).

Acts also told about the bravery of people like the apostle Paul, Barnabas, Silas, and Timothy, who shared the gospel all over Asia and Europe. According to Acts, they made several missionary journeys and started churches. (Acts 16-18)

The book of Acts ends with Paul sharing the Gospel. (Acts 28)
9. Hebrews

Answer: New Testament

No one knows for sure the true author of Hebrews. According to Bible scholars, it was written sometime during the later half of the 1st century (68 and 95 A.D) when the apostles faced persecution for their faith and the Jewish temple was destroyed.

Hebrews' message was important to the Jews because it listed many of their heroes of faith such as Abraham, Moses, and the prophets. It also reminded them of their history. (Hebrews 11, 12)

Hebrews told its readers that Jesus offered his own life to redeem everyone from sin. According to Hebrews, Jesus fulfilled the law of the Old Testament and provided salvation to everyone who believed in Him. (Hebrews 1:4; 6:9; 7:19; 9:23; 10:34, NIV)
10. Revelation

Answer: New Testament

Revelation is the very last book of the Bible.

It is thought by some to have been written by the apostle John and tells of the Lord's return.

Revelation gives instructions to the churches about many events that will happen before the second appearance of Jesus Christ.

John described the beautiful city that is prepared for the saints that love God. He told them to remain strong in their faith in Christ.
