3 John

The most profound piece of writing of all time

Word to your mother

John has many of my favorite Bible verses

John 3:16

4 Proverbs

Proverbs offer us an insight into proper conduct and behavior. It offer us tangible, life changing principals. The book of Proverbs presents us with an opportunity to see immediate results upon application.

5 Genesis

This is the only chapter I've read and Nehemiah - Luckys

Genesis 3:19 has a sentence at the end of the verse. It reads:"For dust you are and dust you return to."

Worst book in the Bible

I love the accounts about creation and joseph

6 Romans

Jesus Returns to heaven
The Holy Spirit comes to Earth
Peter and others receive power from him
Paul becomes a follower of the Lord.
Love this book

I love the book of Romans. It's really good! - kittywarrior107

7 Matthew

Matthew 24:7
"For nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another."

It's sad to believe that these words just came true. This is one of the prophecies that people need to look into the bible.

I love how this book describes Jesus's miracles. #LovingJesus

8 Kings
9 Exodus

There are 10 commandments written in Exodus chapter 20 verses 1-17.

An amazing interesting story of an oppressed people being led out of their despair through a miracle and one man striving with the Lord by his side to free the exodus out of Egypt.

Also the name of one of my favorit metal bands

10 Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 9:11, NWT

"I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all."

The Contenders

11 Luke
12 Philippians
13 Job

I love this book - Cakecookiespie

Teaches a very important lesson but all of the books in the bible are good

14 Numbers
15 Daniel

This one so awesome! This book only has 12 chapters but if you read the Bible book the most famous chapters are 6 (Daniel is protected by God) and 3 (The three Boys are saved) which we're pretty familiar with right? I mean don't get me wrong we all know the stories of Daniel and the three Boys

16 1 Maccabees

Maccabees is a book of the Bible; just not of the version evanglicals use today. It was not rejected during canonization as people here seem to think (and no, it wasn't rejected by Jesus).

This shouldn't be on here because this was from the Apocrypha, which contains 13 books that were rejected by Christ when the bible was originally written.

Isn't this from the Apocrypha? Not a real book of the bible.

Not from the Bible.

17 Hebrews
18 Deuteronomy

King Og is in the book.

Dude there on to me

19 Acts

Acts and Genesis provides spiritual DNA to define who and what we are. Additionally, Psalms 139 is chromosomes of our existence!

Cool book about the first Christians spreading the Gospel around the world. Also a good outline for Christians today in how to share Christ with others. - 1Nyjetsfan6

20 Judges

Judges is such an interesting and amazing books of the bible, and is also quite entertaining. From Ehud to Deborah, Barak and Jael, to Gideon and many more, Judges is a very amazing book! By regular standards, the top 10 should stay almost the same, but Judges should be around 8 or 9 - SirSalvador

21 Galatians

It shows the importance of seeing people as children of God, rather than through negative means of judgement. It also shows the importance of following God's inspiration, not just the law of the land.

Fruitage of the spirit

Galatians 5:22, 23

"On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law."

Definitely a great book. Talks about receiving salvation through Jesus as opposed to the law. Talks about equality. Spiritual endurance. Fruits of the Spirirt. Also, it's written by Paul, which means its awesome. If I went looking through the Bible highlighting verses, I think Galatians would be full of neon yellow.

22 Wisdom

Contains a Messianic Prophecy, concerning Our Lord's Passion.

Not a book of the Bible.

23 First Book of Samuel

Great action and adventure

24 1 John
25 Song of Solomon
26 Colossians
27 Mark

Very well written and the outline is well made. The story can be divided into 2,3 or even 5 major themed parts. The only point is that Mark is originally said to have a very abrupt ending. But who knows maybe even that was for a reason!

28 Joshua


29 James
30 Isaiah

Isaiah 2:4 says that, "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, now will they learn war anymore."

31 Tobit

No, the bible doesn't include the book of Tobit.

32 2 Maccabees

Actually, 2 Maccabees is not from the Bible.

33 Jeremiah

Jeremiah 10:23 from the bible states that humans cannot lead themselves. People mislead themselves by making one mistake after another and they can hurt themselves.

34 Jude
35 Jonah
36 Esther
37 1 Kings
38 1 Thessalonians
39 1 Corinthians
