30 Days To Understanding The Bible
The Bible is the most important book in the world. It contains everything you need to know about God, yourself, and how to live a truly fulfilling life. Learning to read this book can be difficult at first, but once you understand the basic principles behind it, reading Scripture becomes much easier. In this article series, we’ll cover those principles one day at a time so that by the end of 30 days, you’ll be able to understand and apply what you read—and maybe even start writing your own original teachings based on them!
It is the most widely read, printed and translated book in history. It has been translated into more than 2,200 languages, with more than 2 billion copies distributed worldwide. In fact, the Bible has been translated into more languages than any other book that has ever been written!
The Bible is a collection of sixty-six books that tell us about God’s plan for humanity and reveal His ultimate plan for our lives: eternal life through Jesus Christ (John 17:3). The Bible contains many interesting stories about people who lived long ago; however, it was not written just to entertain us. The true purpose of these stories is to teach us how we can experience God’s love by following His example and learning from their mistakes (1 Corinthians 10:11).
The first principle of the Christian faith is that God exists. The Bible says that “God made the world and everything in it,” (Genesis 1:1), and that he is “the Father from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name” (Ephesians 3:14-15).
The second principle of the Christian faith is that God has revealed himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is one but also three. He said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea…and over every living thing that moves upon the earth!” (Genesis 1:26). So we see that there are three divine persons who together have complete authority over all things—they are creators of them all. These three divine persons sustain all things by their providence; they provide all things; they rule over all things according to their will.
Day 2: God is the creator of all things
The Bible tells us that God created the universe out of nothing (Genesis 1:1). This means that everything, including you and me, has been made by God. We are therefore not our own masters; we belong to Him and should live for His glory rather than our own selfish desires (Romans 12:1-2). The reason for this is because He is perfect in every way possible. He is holy, perfectly good, infinitely wise and powerful—and everything else about Him reflects these qualities perfectly too.
It’s no surprise then that we can learn so much from studying His Word; it was written by inspired men who were led by the Holy Spirit Himself! When we read those words aloud each day with faithfulness over time we will come face-to-face with Jesus Christ Himself—the Son of God who became man in order to save us from our sins through His death on the cross followed by His resurrection three days later so that we may be saved eternally if only…
God is the creator of the universe. God created everything in existence. He created human beings, and He created all of life on earth. The Bible makes this point clear throughout many of its pages: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
The Bible also says that God formed man from dust, breathed life into him, and gave him dominion over all creatures on earth: “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over t
On this day, you will learn about the Holy Trinity. You will also see how each member of the Godhead has a distinct role in His plan for humanity.
The Father, who is God Himself, is the first person of the Trinity. He is eternal and all-powerful; he created everything we see and know today (Genesis 1:1). The Son is Jesus Christ, who came to earth as a man to save all those who believe in Him (John 3:16). The Holy Spirit is an active part of our lives today through His work on our hearts and minds (Ephesians 5:18).
Day 5: Jesus Is the Son of God
Today, we’ll be talking about the fact that Jesus is the Son of God. This is a crucial aspect of our faith that many people misunderstand or ignore altogether.
This may seem like a simple concept—but it’s really important to understand what exactly this means. If you do not believe that Jesus is God’s Son, if you do not accept Him as your Lord and Savior, then it does not matter how good you are at following the rules of religion or how much you try to get along with other people; in order for your life to have true meaning and purpose (and ultimately salvation), it must begin with accepting His gift of salvation through His sacrifice on our behalf by dying on the cross so we can live forever in heaven after death.
If this doesn’t make sense yet, there will be more information coming up soon!
A lot of people are familiar with the term “God”, but not many understand what it means to be a Trinity. The Trinity is God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person shares the same nature (essence) and has distinct roles that they fulfill together.
There are many Bible verses that show how Jesus fulfills these three roles: Creator/Redeemer/Sanctifier. For example…
The Father said to Jesus, “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). This shows us that Jesus is God just as much as His Father! In fact, Hebrews 1:7 says that Jesus was equal with His Father before He became human! So we can see here that not only does Christ have all authority from His Heavenly Father but He already had it before he came down here to earth; this makes him worthy of our trust because He has always been trustworthy even before He became man!
Day 7: The Holy Spirit is a person.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity: He has a will, emotions and intelligence. He speaks, teaches and reveals truth to us through Scripture (John 14:26; 16:13-15). He also convicts people of sin and draws them to Christ (Romans 8:9).
In today’s lesson, we will learn about Jesus Christ and how He is God. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Jesus was not just a man who possessed supernatural abilities; he was God in human form (John 1:1–14). The Bible says that God had become flesh (John 1:14) and was born into this world as a baby boy named Jesus of Nazareth so He could die on our behalf and give us eternal life with Him (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Peter 3:18). In fact, Jesus is called “the exact representation of [God’s] nature” (Hebrews 1:3), which means He has all of God’s attributes—power, wisdom, love—and even looks like him! Because of this fact alone we can take comfort knowing that nothing bad could ever happen to us because our Savior will always protect us from harm since He knows exactly what lies ahead for each one of us since he has already walked down every path before we even get started on ours!
- Angels are spirit beings.
- Angels were created by God and have always existed (Hebrews 1:14). They do not die, but they can be destroyed (2 Peter 2:4).
- Angels are called the “host of heaven” in Genesis 2:19 and Deuteronomy 4:19; these verses show that angels were on earth in the time of Adam. In fact, God created them before He created humans—in His image! As such, they have a lot more power than we do as humans (Psalm 103:20–21). Because they were originally made to serve as messengers between man and God (Luke 1:11), it makes sense that we should always pray for their protection when we speak with Him directly through prayer or worship.
You may have heard the term “Trinity” before, but what does it actually mean? The Trinity is a doctrine that teaches God is three distinct persons; each person has eternally existed as God in Himself. There is one God and three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Bible often refers to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit together as “God” or “the Triune God.” In other words, when we read about “God” in the Bible we are talking about all three Persons of the Trinity working together as one Godhead (a term used by some theologians to describe this concept).
Another way of understanding this doctrine is through what Jesus said to His disciples after He rose from the dead and appeared again: “Do not leave Jerusalem until you receive power from on high,” he told them (Luke 24:49). Then He took them up into heaven where they saw him seated at the right hand of God (vss 50-52). At that moment they were filled with joy because they saw Jesus sitting at His Father’s right hand in heaven.
Today, you will learn about God’s relationship to the world.
The Bible teaches that there is one God who exists as three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Father is God’s first Person; He existed before all things and created everything. Jesus Christ is God’s second Person; He came into existence in time when God became flesh and took on human nature in order to redeem us through His death on our behalf. The Holy Spirit is also a distinct person within this triune Godhead who convicts us of sin (John 16:8), regenerates us by making us new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) and indwells all believers (1 Corinthians 6:19). It was through these three persons acting together that creation was brought into being because they are inseparable from each other in nature or essence—yet they can still each work independently of one another without compromising their unity as one Triune Being alongside many other gods who were created along with them!
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is how God is described in Scripture. As Christians we believe that Jesus Christ is coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit, who are both equally God (Matthew 28:18; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6).
This concept can be hard for people to grasp at first because it does not conform to our experience of life on earth. But there is a reason why this is so central to our faith—because God has revealed himself in this way through Jesus Christ. This revelation shows us something about God’s nature that we would have otherwise never known or understood; namely, that he exists as a Trinity consisting of three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) who share one divine nature (John 17:3).
The Bible teaches us that God is a Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. “The Father” is not another name for God (like some people think), but rather another Person in a triune relationship with both Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The Bible teaches us that there is one God, but three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The first verse of John’s Gospel teaches us that everything came from God (literally translated from Greek as “all things were made through Him”). It also tells us where we can find this all-powerful being—in heaven! The very next verse says: “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” This tells us who created everything outside of Himself: He did it himself through His Son Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:16).
Today, we’ll be talking about how the Trinity is not a logical contradiction.
The Trinity is a mystery, but it’s not because God doesn’t make sense—it’s because it can’t be comprehended by our finite minds.
God is infinite and unlimited, while we are limited in thought and understanding. We can only grasp so much of what God means to us at a time before we need to move on to another revelation of who He is.
This isn’t meant as an excuse for us to ignore or downgrade His significance; but rather as an acknowledgement that there are some things God has left outside our grasp until they’re revealed later (if they’re ever revealed).
Today, you will learn about God as a Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God is an infinite Being but He is not a being. He has no beginning or end; He existed before all things were created; He knows all things past present and future; He knows our thoughts before we think them (Jeremiah 23:24); There is only one holy God who exists in three persons: Father Son and Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7).
We worship an eternal God who created man in His own image to rule over this earth with Him as king(Genesis 1:26). But sin caused Adam to fall so that he lost his right standing before God as head of this earth as well as lost access to heaven where God lives. So we too were separated from our Creator until Jesus came into this world because it was impossible for us to go back ourselves.(John 14:6)
God is a Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is Spirit and has no beginning or end. He is infinite in power and wisdom.
God created everything that exists in His creation including angels, humans and animals (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 33:6-9). God used His spoken Word to create everything that exists in heaven or on earth (John 1:1-3). Nothing can be added to what God has said nor taken away from it (Deuteronomy 4:2-4; Rev 22:18-19).
God dwells in Heaven but not on Earth (Hebrews 9 ). The throne of God sits high above all other thrones with his glory filling all space so that no one can see him except those whom he chooses to reveal himself through Jesus Christ who came down here onto this earth as our Savior because we had fallen short of pleasing him by our own efforts alone which led us into sin against Him….
God is a Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
God is a Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This means that God is one God but has three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Bible teaches us that there is only one true God (Deut 6:4). However, this one true God exists in three distinct persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – each fully divine with their own unique attributes; yet they are co-equal and co-eternal with each other as parts of a whole (Matt 28:19; Eph 1:20; 2 Cor 13:14). This can be difficult to understand at first but once you get beyond your initial reaction it will become clearer as we continue our study together.
We may not understand everything about the Trinity, but we can know that God is three distinct persons who are one in essence. The Bible tells us that the Father is God and Jesus Christ is his Son. The Holy Spirit is also referred to as God or even Jesus’ Spirit. This means that God created all things through his Word (Jesus) which was sent by his Spirit which dwells within us today!
