if you're asking why read the Bible, here's a few practical
reasons straight from the source:
To live: "People need more than
bread for their life; they must feed on every word of
For understanding: "As your words
are taught, they give light; even the simple can understand
To know the truth: Jesus then said
to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue

busy, too forgetful - but your friends are there to
help. We need each other.
