Introductions & Timelines

Informative introductions at the beginning of every Bible book give you a basic understanding of how each book reveals God’s great love and faithfulness. These introductions answer seven important questions:

  1. Who is the author?
  2. Who is the audience?
  3. When was it written?
  4. Where did the events take place?
  5. What was happening?
  6. Why was it written?
  7. How should we read this book?

These questions will help you put each book in its proper historical and literary context. Timelines at the bottom of each book introduction reveal how the book’s events fit into the Bible’s larger story.

1,464 Bible Studies

A unique Bible study at the bottom of each Scripture page will guide you through four basic Bible study steps — Pray, Observe, Interpret, and Apply.

  1. Pray: As you approach God’s Word, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth.
  2. Observe: Ask, “What does the Bible text say?”
  3. Interpret: Ask, “What does the Bible text mean?”
  4. Apply: Ask, “As I reflect on what I’ve read in God’s Word, what do I need to do?”

These steps allow you to study the Bible inductively so you can accurately interpret and apply God’s Word to your everyday life.
