2 Timothy 3:16 – 17
“All Scripture is given by God and is useful for teaching, for showing people

where the book is in the table in the front, then the big bold numbers are the
chapters, so find 3, then find verse 16, the small numbers.
If you're looking for stuff on a particular topic, then there's a section
at the front with passages relating to faith, relationships, etc.
If you want to read about what Jesus did, there are 4 versions of that,
called the gospels. They're Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and they're at the

The book after Genesis, named Exodus, is about Moses leading the
Israelites out of Egypt.
There's another section at the front here too, with where you can find
certain well known stories from the bible.
