Let’s take a look at just some of these books God has included in His Word.

The NLT translates John 1:1 like this: In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. This short list is just a glimpse into the awesome, breathtaking, endless, eternal, infinite God who tells us that our names are written on the palm of His Hand. Who can know the mind of this marvelous Creator, Savior, King…Jehovah God?
