The Bible is filled with good news! Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell of the coming Messiah, the Son of God. By reading and studying these books one may be led to believe in Christ. In the book of Acts we find the beginning of the church or kingdom and who one may become a member of the church/kingdom. We learn in Acts how to obey the Lord and be added to the church (Acts 2). Then we find twenty-one letters which tell us how to live the Christian life. Finally the book of Revelation tells us how it will be to live with Christ in eternity.
