Route 66

When approaching the Bible, the simplest way to understand it is to place Jesus Christ in the middle of any of the 66 books you are reading.  Each book is individually wrapped to help us better understand God, who came in the person of Jesus Christ.  The following is a little bit of fun to help you see Jesus in every book of the Bible.
