<At the outset, let me quickly state that my English is poor, so excuse me for that>

I suddenly got this urge to acquaint myself with Christianity, through its texts. Yesterday, I downloaded a nice Bible app, which, seemingly, is more like a complete social platform. It also has a great audio narration. That helps a lot, and is such a nice experience. Anyway, I disgress.

My question is, although I plan on gradually moving to more complex stuff, like anthropology, exegesis, philosophy, what other stuff can I read now that will help me understand the Bible better, to put it into a proper context?

I googled and came across a page that gave an 'outline' or 'structure' of Bible. It was of great help. Before yesterday, I had absolutely no knowledge of Christianity. So, that threw some light on what I am reading in Bible and what it means.

I want to take it slow but I want to be able to put what I am reading into a historical context.


Thanks.

OP, you are JUST LIKE ME. It's incredible and I can't believe it, but we are the same person. I am starting to read the bible for the first time just this week (downloaded the epub) after an imense urge for God.

I just started reading The Bible this evening! Genesis 1, check. I'm reading "The Literary Study Bible," which includes tons of great analysis from a literary perspective. I'm sure this board would love it.

>One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples." And Jesus said to them, "You must read the bible and then move onto more complex stuff, like anthropology, exegesis, philosophy. And you shall read all of the jpg of the bread pill. And you shall read all of the jpg of the advanced bread pill. And you shall not come to me but read The Secret Message of Jesus by Brian McLaren. All Christians need to read St. John of the Cross. Dostoevsky is good. I command you to avoid the literature of those that tippeth the kippah for it shall poison your minds with dissenting opinions, but to instead mock and dismisseth them." His disciples heard this and were amazed.

his attitude to christianity is one of patronizing condescension: "christianity was nice and all, but we've progressed. it's like the current year, dude"

you should probably take that off the list
