How is the Bible organized?
The Bible is divided into two parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament. God’s saving acts are central to each of these parts: in the Old the deliverance of the Israelites from Egyptian bondage through the Exodus, and in the New the deliverance of all humankind from sin through cross and resurrection of Christ.
Both testaments are arranged in roughly chronological order, though the books are grouped according to genre, such as history, poetry, and prophecy for the Old; and biography, history, epistles, and prophecy for the New. You can take a closer look at the organization of each of the testaments by clicking on the “A” link under Introduction to the Old Testament and the “B” link under Introduction to the New Testament.
