Return To:  Book Nobody Knows
Church of God, New World Ministries

The Bible is "the book nobody knows"!

The first book ever printed was the Bible; and more Bibles have been printed than any other book. It has been translated, in its entirety or in part, into more than a thousand languages and dialects and various systems for the blind. The American Bible Society (founded in 1816) alone has published over 356 million volumes of Scripture.

The Bible is the name given to the revelation of God to man contained in sixty-six books or pamphlets, bound together and forming one book and only one, for it has in reality one author and one purpose and plan – the salvation of man.

The Bible, i.e. The Book, derives its name from the Greek “ta biblia,” meaning, the books. The word is derived from a root designating the inner bark of the linden tree, on which the ancients wrote their books. It is the book, as being superior to all other books.

The Bible consists of two great parts, called the Old and New Testaments, separated by an interval of nearly four hundred years. These Testaments are further divided into sixty-six books, thirty-nine in the Old Testament and twenty-seven in the New. These books are a library in themselves, being written in every known form of literature. Twenty-two of them are historical, five are poetical, eighteen are prophetical, and twenty-one are epistolary. They contain logical arguments, poetry, songs and hymns, history, biography, stories, parables, fables, eloquence, law, letters, philosophy and prophecy.

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, except a few parts of Ezra and of Daniel and one verse in Jeremiah. The New Testament is written wholly in Greek.

The Book Nobody Knows

As amazing as it may seem, and as widely known as the Bible is, it is the most misunderstood book read by man. Many educated, learned men dedicated their lives to studying the Bible, and yet, they could not understand the Marvelous Plan the author wove into the sixty-six inspired books. They could not grasp the significant meaning of prophecies inspired for OUR TIME, today. They could not unlock vital keys that are absolutely essential to understanding the TRUTHS of the Bible. They never comprehended The Incredible Human Potential God intends for mankind. The Truth is that God NEVER intended for them to know. In fact, he closed the minds of all of mankind to these basic TRUTHS, and chose to reveal them to only a few. You are probably asking by now, “Is That Really In There?” See for yourself. (Matthew 13:10-17)

In Acts the eighth chapter an angel of the Lord sent Philip to locate an Ethiopian eunuch who had come up to Jerusalem to worship. When Philip found him he was reading from the book of Isaiah. Philip asked him if he understood what he was reading. The eunuch said, “How can I except some man should guide me:” And so it is with most of us, we need some one to guide us.
