How do I Use the Bible?

BIBLE FOCUS
Joshua 1:6-9

DISCOVERY POINT:
It’s easy to find things in the Bible.

KEY VERSE:
“Study this Book of Instruction continually.”
(Joshua 1:8a)

GENESIS 1:1
Here’s the book…the chapter…the verse.

See? It’s the book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1. It’s kind of like each verse has its own address. Let’s try another one! Let’s look up a verse about when Jesus was born.

LUKE 2:7
Ok, first you find the book of Luke. Next, you need to find chapter 2. Finally, look in chapter 2 for the little number 7-that’s verse 7.

Now read it! See? You just found a verse that tells a very important part of the history of the world. Way to go! Just look for the bigger numbers.

Try looking up these verses!

JOHN 3:16
Here’s what I think this verse means:

1 CORINTHIANS 13:13
Here’s what I think this verse means:

DEUTERONOMY 6:5
Here’s what I think this verse means:

JEREMIAH 29:11
Here’s what I think this verse means:
__________________________________
__________________________________

Now, try looking these up on your own!

MATTHEW 28:5-7
Ha! Here’s a tricky one! When there’s a short line between the verse numbers, it means to read more than one verse. So here it means: Read verses 5 through 7.

Here’s what I think these verses mean:
____________________________________
____________________________________

MARK 2:23–3:6
Another tricky one? When you see a longer line between numbers, that means you should read from one chapter into another. So in this next one, you go from the book of Mark, chapter 2, verse 23, all the way to Mark, chapter 3, verse 6. Try it!

Here’s what I think this verse means:
