THINK SPOT:  If the Bible is just a fairy tale, then why is it considered dangerous and banned in so many countries and why do people go to jail for reading it? Who jails anybody for reading fairy tales?! Yet another indication that it is the truth!

DID YOU KNOW:  The great discovery is that the Bible is a message system. It’s not simply 66 books penned by 40 different authors over thousands of years. The Bible is an integrated whole which bears evidence of supernatural engineering in every detail.” Dr Chuck Missler

BOOKS OF THE BIBLE ~ OVERVIEW / INFORMATION

Chapters and Verses are NOT in the original text  (Chuck Missler) The Bible’s chapter divisions were not in the original; they were placed in the New Testament in the 13th century AD and in the Hebrew Old Testament in the 15th century. And at the 54:50 mark in this video, he explains further that chapter divisions were added by Stephen Langton in 1227; verse divisions began to be used in the Stephanus Greek New Testament in 1551.

The Secrets of the Missing Scrolls  (Paper Gifts for Estefany) A mystery adventure theme giving an overview of the discovery of the Old Testament Dead Sea Scrolls with free colouring pages, puzzles, articles, crafts and creative ideas for kids describing the ultimate treasure hunt to teach them that God’s Word CAN be trusted.

New Testament Overview  (Paper Gifts for Estefany) Did you know that of all the major world religious leaders, ONLY Jesus Christ claimed to be God. His grave is also the ONLY one in history that is empty. You can visit all the others. The New Testament was written by eyewitnesses who were brutally executed for refusing to deny it. Free colouring pages, puzzles, crafts and creative ideas for kids giving us an overview of the New Testament and those eyewitness accounts to teach our children that God’s Word CAN be trusted.

In the Footsteps of Jesus - Secrets of the New Testament - free apologetics article for kids A4; free printable

Can we Trust the Bible?  (creation.com; scroll down to ‘Can we trust the Bible?’) What makes the Bible the best-selling book in the world? Billions of copies have been printed, even though it has endured more opposition than any other book ever; beautifully illustrated 2-page article for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously; free printable

How did we get our Bible?  (creation.com) The universe and all in it screams, ‘There is a God!’ (Romans 1:18-21), but the universe cannot tell us how it was made, its history, how we should live our lives, or about when its Creator came to Earth. For that, God has given us His Word, the Bible. Where did the Bible come from?

Books of the Bible ~ Q&A  (creation.com) Topics include: The authority of Scripture (also available in Spanish); Should we trust the Bible; Jesus Christ on the infallibility of Scripture; Gospel dates and reliability; Does the Bible contain information that was ‘ahead of its day’; When were the biblical books written? Does archaeology confirm the Bible’s historical record?… and more

Where did we get our Bible – answers for kids  (answersingenesis; scroll down to lesson 13 and 14) Because it is the Word of the Creator, we accept the Bible as our final authority in every area it touches on; the Bible claims to be the Word of God over 3,000 times; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; free printable

History of the Bible  (creationmuseum) Forty authors writing over 2,000 years spoke the same message. Scrolls discovered in the last century confirm that the original words have been preserved. Archaeology has repeatedly confirmed that the Bible’s historical details are accurate. Above all, the God of truth, the Creator of heaven and earth, inspired the men who penned the words for us to learn of Him. God’s Word offers hope; the Bible endures attack; share this information with your child

What makes the Bible so amazing?  (Christiananswers) There has never been a book like the Bible. It was written by over 40 authors who wrote from 3 different continents: Asia, Africa and Europe in many different places: wilderness, prison, travelling, islands at different times; covering a span of 1,500 years; who did different kinds of jobs: fishermen, kings, shepherd, a herdsman, a politician, a doctor, a tax collector, a rabbinical scholar. They all wrote about the same thing… without any contradictions! (and click on the lizard for more); share this information with your child and let them know they CAN trust the Bible as being the Word of God.

Genesis to Revelation – poem   (abdaacts; scroll down) A review of the Bible books from cover to cover, beginning with: “In Genesis, the story of creation and the flood are told, In Exodus, by the hand of God the plagues and waters unfold. Leviticus records The Law, While in Numbers, the increase of Israel the neighbours saw, But in Deuteronomy once again God’s commandments are known, So absolute allegiance must be kept to Him alone…”
