A Quick Word


Christians believe that the Bible is God’s word. As such it reveals what God is like, including how he relates to people. Additionally it reveals his instructions for people – largely how he wants us to relate to him and to others.

This booklet gives a brief overview of the Bible’s teachings. The booklet is largely made up of Bible verses. Before the verses are headings, which reflect what the verses say. The verses are sometimes followed by a comment.

Some verses have a brief introduction, in brackets. These state who is speaking. Apart from God and Jesus Christ, the main speakers are:

  • David – who wrote many prayers; and
  • Paul – who wrote letters to believers.
