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.
WANT TO TRY OUT MY TIPS ON YOUR OWN?
Check out my starter method:
- If available, read the intro to Genesis to get some background knowledge such as author, audience, date, and theme.
- Write out a basic outline of headers to get an overview of the main events.
- Make a list of major and minor characters.
- Read through each chapter slowly, referring to footnotes in the bottom for more information.
- Highlight any verses you want to remember.
- Circle or underline any words or phrases that repeat.
- Write down any questions you have.
- Continue reading, answering any questions you many find answers to, and/or comparing with other versions and analyzing through commentary.
If this seems overwhelming, no worries! I’ve done the basic work for you. 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 VISUAL 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 or what really was floating around in the ark, I’ve got you covered!

THANKS FOR JOINING ME IN THIS STUDY!
Each month, I’ll cover another book of the Bible using the order of the Chronological Timeline I mentioned in the Study Your Bible Series. Next month, we’ll follow the life of Moses as we explore Exodus-Deuteronomy in another printable!
