There are a total of 66 books, 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. The Bible was written by over 36 different people, and over a period of about 1,500 years. The authors came from many different backgrounds and professions. There were fishermen, farmers, politicians, teachers, doctors, tent makers and even kings. It would be mathematically impossible for so many different people over so many years to write with such harmony and accuracy, if it were not for the Holy Spirit. God told these people what to write. The Bible is the Word of God”; free printable

Bible Treasure Theme Ahoy me hearties! Arrr! Yar ha arrr! :) One of my favourite themes that I have done for my Compassion kids was a fun Bible Treasure theme full of pirates, treasure chests and swashbuckling adventure to encourage them to dig into eternal treasure and the promises of God!
The Secrets of the Missing Scrolls Another of my favorite packages for my kids was a mystery / adventure theme describing the ultimate treasure hunt to teach them that God’s Word CAN be trusted. I sent them deep into the desert on a very special and dangerous mission; travelling backwards and forwards through time; boldly helping others to escape from Roman soldiers; witnessing dangerous and secret meetings at the highly volatile Jerusalem border; preparing the Great Isaiah scroll for the coming Messiah; being part of an exciting archaeological expedition; and actually discovering the archaeological treasure find of the century… real eternal treasure… the very famous Dead Sea Scrolls.
