First and Second Timothy

Civilization’s best-selling book opens as the Old Testament (OT) describes Earth’s creation and its first humans.  Employing history, poetry and prophecy, the OT’s 39 books trace the Jews’ bumpy ride right up until 400 years prior to Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem. The New Testament’s (NT) 27 books cover the life and teachings of Jesus, God’s only Son, while He lived on earth.  Next, the Acts of the Apostles relates the infancy of the Christian faith.  Then a string of letters, most written by Paul, God’s first missionary to the Gentiles. The NT ends with Revelation, the wide screen view of the future.
