The Bible is divided into two parts, known as testaments. There are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament.

The Old Testament was written primarily in Hebrew, with some portions in Aramaic. The New Testament was written in Greek.

The Old Testament is divided into five sections, namely The Law, The History, The Wisdom and Poetry, The Major Prophets and The Minor Prophets.

The New Testament is divided into five sections, namely, the Gospels, the History of the early Church (the Book of Acts), the Pauline Epistles, the General Epistles and Prophecy (the Book of Revelation).
