How to Use the Bible

Some helpful tips on how it works

The Bible is actually made of lots of different little books, but is split into two main bits, the Old Testament and the New Testament. Each book is divided into chapters, and each chapter is divided into verses (which is a like a paragraph). So to find a sentence in the Bible you need to first find the book, then the chapter, then the verse. People write it like this: Luke 24:32. This just means the little book is called Luke, it's chapter 24 and verse 32. It sound hard, but is really helpful when you get the hang of it!
