AUTHORIZED KING JAMES BIBLE PURE CAMBRIDGE EDITION THE HOLY BIBLE CONTAINING THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS TRANSLATED OUT OF THE ORIGINAL TONGUES: AND WITH THE FORMER TRANSLATIONS DILIGENTLY COMPARED AND REVISED, BY HIS MAJESTY'S SPECIAL COMMAND, APPOINTED TO BE READ IN CHURCHES.
In case you have never heard this:
- the Old Testament doesn't begin until Exodus 19.
There can not be an OT until the law was given to Israel.
- The New Testament does not begin until the death of Christ at the crucifixion. The authority for this is Hebrews 9:16,17.
- This bible index is arranged with this in mind. The publishers of the bible have it wrong.
Do you believe God's word, or do you believe man, the publishers of your bible??

Acts 1 to 8
(God postpones New Testament at end of Acts 8, because Israel still rejected their Messiah, and God was about to pour down His wrath (the Great Tribulation), but God instead brings in the dispensation of His Grace. Who does God use? Not some great believer of the day, but Saul, the persecutor of the Jews)
Acts 9 to 28
(The preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret, is introduced to the Apostle Paul by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself after the Apostles Paul's salvation)
Acts 9 to 28
Dispensation of the Grace of God
(Our Doctrine for today)
(The Gospel: Romans 3:21-28, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesians 1:12,13)
Romans ~ I Corinthians ~ II Corinthians ~ Galatians ~ Ephesians ~ Philippians ~ Colossians
I Thessalonians ~ II Thessalonians ~ I Timothy ~ II Timothy ~ Titus ~ Philemon
(This is when the "catching away of the saints", the rapture, occurs)
(God resumes New Testament)
Hebrews ~ James ~ I Peter ~ II Peter ~ I John ~ II John ~ III John
Jude ~ Revelation
Regarding the Bible: God deals with man differently in times past, times present, times future.
When we speak of the dispensation of the Grace of God, we are talking about this present day...meaning, from the time the Apostle Paul was saved in Acts 9, until the saints are caught up to be with our Saviour.
to go to find all you need to know about how a lost person is saved today? Romans Chapters 1 thru 4, only. Begin your bible reading and study with Romans.
The gospel that saves: Romans 3:24,25,26 ~
"24. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26. To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus."
The Apostle Paul's declaration of the ~Gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJB), and also, in whom you trust, Ephesians 1:12,13 (KJB), after believing Christ's death, burial, and resurrection, for payment of all your sins.
