The best place to start in the Bible as a new believer is the book of John. Most people think the Bible is like a novel where you start in the beginning and read until the end. The Bible is not a normal book; it is made up of a number of books written by different authors. It is God’s library of individual inspired books.
Most people who start reading the Bible begin in the front with Genesis. Unfortunately, many usually fall off in the first few books. Some of these books, although very important as we mature as believers, describe a lot of dietary rules and other rituals that are unclear taken out of context for new believers. The book of John is a good starting point because it is the most fundamental presentation of Jesus and the Gospel. John wrote this book to show that Jesus is the Christ, the chosen one, who came to save mankind. The book of John will guide you as you start your new journey!
