What Do Catholics Need To Know About Reading The Bible?

"What is the Bible? Where did it come from?

The Bible is not one book. It is a library. It is 73 books consisting of various literary genres. There is history, romance, poetry, inspiration, drama, and so much more. In every single page, we believe that God is the primary author working through the secondary human author. Therefore, Sacred Scripture is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

There are 46 Books in the Old Testament which show us the drama of salvation, from the creation of the world and Adam and Eve to a couple hundred years before Christ. This is where we also find the Wisdom literature, like Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Sirach. We also hear from the prophets who are anticipating Christ."
