The Bible is amazingly small. The Sunday newspaper has more words than the New Testament.  

Imagine a book that fits in one hand that describes

  • the creation of the universe and man (Genesis 1); 
  • more than four thousand years of human history, including much recorded nowhere else; 
  • a comprehensive history of the Jewish nation; 
  • the lives of forty-seven kings (1 Samuel–2 Chronicles), including such renowned men as David and Solomon; 
  • more than 300 fulfilled prophecies of the Messiah;
  • the birth, life, deeds, words, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of the world’s Savior (Matthew–John);
  • the gospel—its facts, commands, and promises (Matthew–Acts; 1 Corinthians 15:1–4);
  • the establishment, growth, and fifty-year early history of the church (Acts–Revelation);
  • a comprehensive system of ethics and a daily guide for a happy life (e.g., Matthew 5–7; Titus 2:11–14; 1 Peter 3:10–11);
  • organization, leadership qualifications, and rules of conduct for the church (Romans–Jude);
  • a missionary plan to cover the whole world in every generation (Mark 16:15–16; Acts 1:8); and 
  • a prophecy of what happens beyond this life and into eternity (Revelation).
