seven books make up the New Testament.

Aramaic, and Greek).
 Yet it presents a unified message of God’s plan and
purpose for humanity.
 What is the first book written in the bible?
Notice the
Following in OT

tradition than the Jewish one because the Jews
combined some together but without changing any
word or letter.

book of wisdom, Ecclesiasticus by Ben Sirach,

The Relevance
of the Bible
 2Tim 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of
God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for
correction, and for training in righteousness. That
the man of God may be complete, thoroughly
equipped for every good work”
 The word "scripture" means "sacred writings.“
 The fundamental characteristic of scripture, what
makes these writings sacred writings, is the fact
that God breathed them out, that they have their
ultimate origin with God Himself.
