Not all writings are the same. You wouldn’t send a text message to a friend with the same writing style you would use to hand write a letter to your grandmother. In the same way, the authors of the Bible used different writing styles ( poetry, narrative, and prophecy ) to communicate to their original audience.

The Bible isn’t meant to confuse you, so keep reading! The more we read, the better we get to know God and the more we understand what we’re reading.
