Bible Dictionary and the Bible

The Bible Dictionary included with the LDS editions of the scriptures is a very useful tool in understanding the Bible and its contents. It provides explanations about the organization and history of the Bible itself and the books contained therein.

I found the entries in the Bible Dictionary very useful but found it time consuming to try to flip through to find everything. Here, I have collected and organized the information to make it easier to use and learn from.

What’s the point?

Collecting information about the Bible helps one see the book as a whole and the unique roles and histories of each of its components. If one does not understand where the Bible came from and how it is organized, one cannot understand the Bible.
