Speaking of Life

The bible is all about life. In Genesis, we read about the creation of life and also the destruction of life by the Creator. The Old Testament contains many stories about the lives of God’s people, while other books give wisdom and guidance for living life. The four gospel accounts teach us about the life of Jesus and we have the Acts in which we read of the lives of the Apostles and Christians in the early church. The epistles (letters) instruct us on how to live the Christian life and of course, we learn of eternal life through the scriptures. Yes, the bible is all about life.
