Learn the Books of the Bible!

Have you ever been at church or in a Bible Study and feel lost when the pastor or leader says “Turn to the book of Ruth.” And you wonder, where is Ruth anyway? Is it in the Old Testament or New Testament? And maybe you feel embarrassed like I once did, so you don’t even bring your Bible so you don’t have to hunt for the verse or chapter.

While the little chapter tabs you can purchase on line or at a Christian bookstore are great, sometimes you may not have your own Bible. And of course, Bible apps on our phones are nice, but learning the order of the 66 books of the Bible is actually easier than you think. Here is one graphic of the Old and New Testament Books. By the way, sometimes color coding helps us recall things better.

Amy from Aprons & Ambition made this printable bookmark you may download for free.  Once you print it, you fold it in half and laminate it. Thanks, Amy!
