What Is a Bible?

Did you know God has a book out? His book is the most well-known, unique book ever written. It's the Bible! Why did God put this best-seller together? Here are four reasons:

His Autobiography: The Bible tells us about God's character and values, who he is, and what he does, so we can begin to understand him. In the New Testament, God sent his Son, Jesus, who is the "exact likeness" of God to show us exactly what he is like!

His Plan: God wanted to tell us his plan for the world. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and wrecked their relationship with him--and everyone else's relationship with him as well. As a result, we all sin and displease God. But God had a plan to repair the relationship. The Bible tells us how God sent Jesus to deal with sin and make a way for us to be together.

A Love Letter: God loves us, and the Bible is his love letter to us. The Bible is all about God and us. God gave us his book so we can have a wonderful life and a loving relationship with him.

An Instruction Manual: Everyone wants to be happy and have a good life, but how? Well, if you want to know how to operate a VCR or put together a model car, you pull out the instruction manual. So if you want to know how to have a great life, pull out God's instruction manual--the Bible!

In the Bible, God gives us guidelines and principles to follow, and rules that tell us how to act and live for the best possible results. He tells us how to handle our money, how to honor and be close to God, how to treat others, how to have good friendships, and much more. Want a good life? Follow the instruction manual and you will! Guaranteed!

God made us to live a certain way--a way that lines up with what he's like. The way to have the best life is to follow his rules and principles. God wrote them down for us in the Bible so we'd know how to have a great life.

What Is a Concordance?

Every verse in the Bible has a reference that lets us know exactly where to find it. For example, the reference for "It is more blessed to give than to receive" is Acts 20: 35. (Acts is the book it's in, 20 is the chapter of the book, and 35 is the verse.)

If you don't know a reference, think how long it would take you to find the verse! Wow! You'd have to read through the whole Bible! Or if you thought "It is more blessed to give than to receive" was in the gospels, you'd spend hours looking for it there but still not find it. That's why a concordance is such a help! You're probably wondering--

What is a concordance?

A concordance (kon-kord-ants) is a book that lists Bible words alphabetically. Under every word are references where that word is found. Beside each reference is a phrase--a few words from the verse--in which that word is used.

When would you use it?

Often you have no idea where to find something in the Bible. Where is the story of Samson? Where does it say, "Blessed are those who show mercy"? A concordance can help you find those stories and verses. Also, if you want a good idea of what God says about something, you can look up verses where that word is used.

How do you use it?

If all you can remember is part of a verse, pick an important word--in this case, "mercy"--and look it up in your concordance. Study the references listed under Mercy. Beside each reference is a phrase where that word is used. Read the phrases until you find "Blessed are those who show mercy." (Note: Often only the first letter of the word you're looking for is used.) The references under Mercy might look like this:

Blessed are those who show mercy Matthew 5: 7

loves us deeply. He is full of mercy Ephesians 2: 4

was because of his mercy. He saved Titus 3: 5

See how easy it is to use a concordance? Now you can look up Matthew 5: 7 in your Bible and read the entire verse.

How to Use the Kid-cordance

Most concordances are an alphabetical list of words with Bible verses under them. That can be a big help. But when we put together the Kidcordance, we wanted to go "the extra mile" to help you understand the most important truths, characters, places, and stories in the Bible. So we put these words in the main section and wrote a short definition after each one. After the definition we have a Key Verse. This verse captures the main thought of that word. Extra verses below that show other important places that word is used in the Bible.

Some words--like "Jesus"--are particularly important. Topics like these are followed by a Suggested Reading, which lists Bible chapters where you can really dig for treasure! On top of that, these extra-important topics have a Didjaknow? section, which gives even more exciting facts!

In the back of the Kidcordance is an extra concordance with lots of other words you might need to look up. We couldn't fit them all in the main section, but we knew you'd want to check them out too!

Following that are the Famous Bible Stories. All the most exciting stories, from Adam and Eve to Jonah and the fish to the Lost Son--and much, much more!--can be found here.

We also have three pages of Favorite Bible Verses. These are some of the most important verses in the Bible. If you memorize these verses, they will strengthen you spiritually.

Oh! And as you probably noticed, the Kidcordance is specially designed to help you find verses in the New International Reader's Version (NIrV) Bible. You may not always be able to use it to help you find verses in other Bible versions, however. For example, in the NIrV Jeremiah 32: 18 says, "You show your love," but in the KJV (King James Version) it reads, "Thou shewest lovingkindness." So stick to the NIrV!
