I’M CREATING A UNIQUE OUTLINE OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE FOR YOU!

Due to the popularity of my Old and New Testament Timelines, I’m so excited to share more of the behind the scenes work I do in my own personal Bible study to present Biblical history and information in a visual and easy-to-understand way.

So…I’m doing it. I’m creating a PRINTABLE VISUAL OUTLINE OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE month by month until it’s done. Crazy? Maybe. Exciting? Yes!

My Bible is covered in notes from sermons, studies, Bible dictionaries, atlases, commentaries, and Biblical scholars. In trying to piece together the stories and timelines myself, it helps for me to see everything laid out in a simple format.

This Quickview Bible was my go to for making connections and diving into the historical events of the Bible rather than only going into study looking for answers to all of my many problems. But what I found was I wanted to combine all of the resources into one place where I could figure out how one book of the Bible fit together in the context of the greater story.

THE BOOK OF GENESIS IN THE BIBLE

There is a LOT to unpack in this 50 chapter book of Genesis. Here are a few of the major stories found in this part of the Bible:

  • Creation
  • Adam and Eve
  • The First Murder
  • The Tower of Babel
  • Noah and the Flood
  • Abraham and Isaac
  • The 12 Tribes of Israel

If you really want to understand how the Bible is put together historically, I suggest you start here with this Old Testament Summary. It’s so important that you understand the events of Genesis to gain deeper insight into the promises and prophesies that are to come.

If this seems overwhelming, no worries! I’ve done the basic work for you with a simple explanation of the book of Genesis. Keep reading and I’ll help you make sense of some of the big ideas presented in Genesis and how they connect to each other.

GENESIS PRINTABLE OUTLINE

I’ve created two printables as a resource for your study of the book of Genesis. I do so much better with visual learning than I do with repeated reading.

So if you’re wondering how they came up with the 12 Tribes of Israel, I’ve got you covered!
