Explain how to show respect for the Bible and how to care for it.[edit | edit source]
a. Respecting your Bible
b. Taking Care of your Bible
- First and foremost, have a Bible cover to protect your Bible when you are not using it. Keeping it in a cover will protect it from weather, accidental mishaps around the house, and if it should fall to the ground.
- Use a proper Bible marker to highlight verses in your Bible. These markers are made not to bleed through papers, especially since some Bible pages are very thin. Using a regular marker or a permanent marker will damage other pages.
- Use a bookmark to mark off where you stopped reading. Folding down page corners can cause these pages to rip easily. Some Bible come with bookmark ribbons built in.
- Avoid studying your Bible while eating food or drinking. Greasy foods, especially, and beverages can leave nasty stains that will never come out. This can cause words to become blurry and hard to read later on.
- Keep your Bible in a safe place
- Keep your Bible out of direct sunlight, especially with the pages open. The sun rays can eventually fade the words, making it difficult to read.
- Avoid bending the cover backwards to easily access just one page. This action will eventually cause the binding to become loose, thus allowing pages to fall out.
- Don't stuff bulletins and other materials between Bible pages. This, too, will cause the binding to become loose. Instead, put these materials in the pockets of your Bible cover.
Name the first and last books of the Bible and tell who wrote them.[edit | edit source]
The first book in the Bible is Genesis. The Lord Jesus Himself and the Gospel writers said that the Law was given by Moses (Mark 10:3; Luke 24:27; John 1:17), and the uniform tradition of the Jewish scribes and early Christian fathers, and the conclusion of conservative scholars to the present day, is that Genesis was written by Moses.
The last book es Revelation. According to the Bible, at Revelation 1:1, we read--"The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John
