The Bible makes great claims. It clearly states that its author is God
who is the Creator of all things. It claims to reveal God and His purpose
with creation and it speaks with authority about how we can seek and find
Him. If this claim cannot be upheld, then the Bible is the greatest and
the most cruel hoax which has ever deluded mankind. However,
if the claims of the Bible are true, then we are in possession of the
worlds greatest treasure.
The Bible is indeed God's message and is unique. As the true Word of
God it contains the key to peace and everlasting life. Within itís pages
the answers to perplexing questions concerning the meaning and purpose of
our existence and the final outcome of the struggle between right and
wrong can be found. Understanding the message of the Bible is the key to
finding salvation through the saving name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The message of the Bible is far too important to be ignored or to be
left to others to tell us what it says. We must read the Bible for

There are many different versions of the Bible in many languages. Even
those in English range from using the language of the 17th Century to
modern versions translated into the way we speak and write today.

HOW TO USE THESE NOTES
These notes are structured around reading one chapter of
the Bible every day. Daily Bible reading is a worthwhile habit to acquire.
By following this pattern the six STEPS will be covered in exactly fifty
two weeks. So in one year it will be possible to get a very good overall
view of the message of the Bible.
Within these notes, each STEP starts with an introduction giving an
overview of the chapters and parts of the message to be covered. It is
recommended that the sequence be followed right through.
Each day's chapter should be read carefully and in conjunction with the
Daily Note. Other relevant Bible passages will be suggested as worth
referring to. Looking up these other references is important and will help
your overall understanding of the Gospel message. Reading the Bible as a
whole will show how the message of the Bible is consistent. Indeed all
parts of God's word have something to teach us.
Numbers 14:21 means the Book of Numbers, Chapter 14 and Verse 21. The 66
