Biblical wisdom is spiritual wisdom for you to live in reality so that you may avoid doing all the wrong things in your life. The book of Revelation is the last book of the Bible.
Does a non-believer need to read the Bible first in order to become a believer?
Well, not necessarily. A non-believer may not know how and where to begin with the Bible. After all, a non-believer must, first and foremost, show the intent to believe. Having said that, a non-believer should have some basic knowledge about the Bible.
The Bible is about the history of mankind, and their salvation.
When God created Adam and Eve, the first human beings, He placed them in a garden with the tree of life. The fruits of that tree represented the way of life God wanted them to accept and follow. But near the tree of life was another tree, a tree whose fruits represented a mixture of both good and evil. God commanded them to avoid the second tree. But God also gave them the freedom of choice.
Then Eve's curiosity overwhelmed her. She yielded to the deceptive influence of "that serpent of old," and then persuaded Adam to join her in tasting the fruit of evil. All of mankind has followed them in that choice, resulting in living a life of good and evil.
The Bible is about what God planned and intends to complete the redemption and salvation of all who will repent. The Bible is the Word of God. Through the Bible, God speaks to each and every one of us, if we are willing to listen and believe.
Biblical wisdom, expressed in God’s Word, may show humans how to live to the best and the fullest, how to live and survive in a world of good and evil, as well not as how to conquer death, which comes in the end. Most importantly, the Bible shows humans how to live in reality. Many in this world do not live in reality because they commit sins and do evils, still thinking that they can get away with no accountability because God does not exist.
Are the biblical truths authentic and believable?
Biblical truths were mainly based on past historical events. Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate, the Governor of Judea in the Roman Empire, and He was crucified on the Cross. That was a historical fact.
But was Jesus the Son of God, as He claimed? Did Jesus actually come back to life after three days? All these might or might not be historical facts. They require your faith to believe in them.
Anyway, according to Guinness Book of Records, the Bible is the all-time best-selling book, as well as the most translated work in world literature. This indicates that many people do believe that the Bible is a book of absolute truths with divine instructions and revelations from God.
The Bible is a book of wisdom based on biblical truths that require faith to believe in the authenticity of all historical manuscripts reporting those events that had already taken place hundreds and thousands of years ago.
The Bible has 66 books according to the Protestants, and 77 books according to the Catholics. These books belong to the Old Testament, and 27 of them are in the New Testament. The Old Testament is about the ancient prophets foretelling the coming of the Savior, as well as about the history of the Israelites, the chosen people of God. The 27 books in the New Testament are about Jesus Christ, the salvation of mankind, the growth of the early church, and the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The book of Revelation is the last book of the New Testament. As the title implies, it is about not only the revelation of every aspect of faith and belief in order to transform a non-believer into a believer to ensure that death is a rite of passage to eternal life.
