Looking for a Bible book to read?
Pick one of the Old Testament books below and read a chapter every day . . . or four or more days a week.
Another word for Testament is covenant or agreement. The titles “Old Testament” and “New Testament” refer to the agreements between God and humanity before and after the sacrifice of Christ. The Old Testament is a collection of 39 books of history, prophecy, and poetry.
IMPORTANT: The designations “first testament” and “second testament” indicate the order in which they were written. The Old Testament is not “old news” and, therefore, no longer relevant. It was written first. The New Testament is God’s second–or new–agreement with humanity.
Both tell God’s story and reveal his love and plan for his creation while introducing the savior for the world.
