Introduction To The Holy Bible

Moses

St. John

     THE HOLY BIBLE is God's own book. It is the greatest book in the world. You may have read many other books. Perhaps some were fairy stories, some were funny stories, and others were adventure stories. These were all made up by someone. They were not true. The Bible is different, for it is all true. The Bible is made up of many smaller books. They were written by different men at different times. These books were gathered, and kept, and put together for us by God's Holy Church. God Himself told the holy men to write the books of the Bible. He showed them what He wanted them to write, and He helped them while they were writing. He kept them from making mistakes. They wrote down only what God wanted them to write, These holy books of the Bible are God's letters to us, His children. The most important part of the Bible is in the Gospels.  Here we learn that God's own Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, came from Heaven to live in our world with us. We learn how He died to save us, because He loves us. Before we begin reading the Bible we should always say a prayer, so that God will speak to our hearts. The Bible should not be left lying around carelessly, It should not be put on a shelf with other kinds of books. It should be kept in a place of honor, by itself.
