Faith Christian Fellowship Center & Outreach Ministries -
The most basic and fundamental study for Christians is getting an understanding of the Books of the Bible in their order and their overall meaning.  The focus of this course is to assist the Child of God in knowing not only where the books of the bible are located, but also to give a topical understanding of each individual book itself.  We will hone in on primary Bible characters, historical, cultural and spiritual information to best determine the "overall" theme of each book.
The Old testament is broken down by each individual book, where the New Testament is broken up into the 4 sections:
The Pentateuch (the Books of the Law) - Gen, Exo. lev, Num., Deu.
Old Testament History - Josh, Jud., Ruth, 1Sam, 2 Sam, 1 Kin, 2 Kin, 1 Chr, 2 Chr, Ezra, Neh, Est
Poetry - Job, Psalms, Prov, Eccl, Song
Major Prophets - Isa, Jer, Lam, Eze, Dan
Minor Prophets - Hos, Joel, Amos, Obad, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Hab, Zep, Hag, Zech, Mal
