Getting started

Like the Bible itself, you don’t need to read The Bible Journey from start to finish in order to enjoy it.

  1. If you’re completely new to the Bible

If you don’t know much and aren't sure where to start, you might like to start reading at Section 3 (about Jesus's birth and childhood) or at Section 4 (about Jesus's early teachings). Start with the New Testament in Bible Journey (1) and dip into the Old Testament in Bible Journey (2) later.

You'll find a helpful Summary at the beginning of each new section.

  1. If you already know a bit more about the Bible

If you know something about the main characters and events in the New Testament and the Old Testament but would like to know more, try reading straight through this guide starting at Section 1 but without looking up any of the Bible references.


  1. If you already have a good knowledge of the Bible

If you already have a good grasp of the Bible, you might like to explore the significance of the geographical and historical background to the events portrayed there by reading through The Bible Journey and looking up all the references in your own copy of the Bible as you go along.

If you don't have a copy of the Bible in your own language, or would like to read it in a different language, you'll find numerous versions of the Bible freely available online @ Bible Gateway.


Whichever approach you choose, the Bible is an amazing book and you are guaranteed a blessing by exploring what God says to us through its pages!
