Christianity - The Bible

This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at Christianity and the Bible. The Bible, despite appearing in one volume, is not really a single book. Instead, it is a whole collection of books, a bit like a mini-library. It is made up of Jewish scriptures, held in what Christians call the Old Testament, which is the first part of the Bible. The second collection of books in the Bible is called the New Testament. The Bible contains many different types of texts, including histories, laws, songs and poetry, letters, prophecies, visions and the gospels, which tell the life of Jesus.

The Bible was originally written in two languages, Hebrew for the Jewish scriptures, and Greek for what is now known as the New Testament. A Bible written in English has been translated from these two languages. Christians believe the Bible to have been inspired by God, which is what is meant by speaking of these writings as the "Word of God".
