Reflecting on the Bible
What can the Bible teach us?
Christians believe that all parts of the Bible are useful for learning about God. Take a look at some of these different kinds of writing. As you read them, think about these questions:
- What is God like?
- How might this passage comfort people reading it?
- Is there anything you find difficult when reading it?
