What book of the Bible should I study first?
1. The gospels. One good place to start is in the New Testament with one of the gospels. By starting in a gospel, you can get to know Jesus and his character and see what he is like as a person.
Where do I start if I never read the Bible?
The Bible is a book of many books so you don’t necessarily have to read them all in order unless you want to. Many people suggest that you start with the Gospel, say starting with John, then just read around. A few of Paul’s letters, some Psalms, and the books of Moses (Genesis-Deuteronomy).
Should I read the New Testament first?
I think anyone interested in Christianity should start with the New Testament — specifically the gospels (I’d start with John, but that’s just because it’s my favorite). If you want to read it a priori from Christianity, then start from Genesis. If you want to do it as a Christian, then start with the Gospels.

Which book of the Bible is best for a new believer?
Start with a Book of the Bible such as John
Part of the reason I would recommend starting with the book of John, and not a book like Genesis, is that John gives you an overview of the story of salvation: the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
Is the Bible meant to be read in order?
It is true that the Bible is arranged in very approximate chronological order. That is one of the reasons it has two major divisions called the “Old Testament” and the “New Testament.” Also the Bible is organized by writing styles.
What is the chronological order of the Bible?
The Bible only loosely arranges its books in chronological order. It comes mostly arranged thematically. For example, the Old Testament lists the 5 books of Moses first, then the history of the Israelites, then the teachings of Israelite prophets.
Do you read the Bible front to back?
Yes, it is worth reading the Bible from front to back. Three chapters a day will get you through it in about a year.
