A Bible Book Mnemonic

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit that knowing how many books are in the Old Testament compared to how many books are in the New Testament is not the most important fact someone can learn about God’s Word.

To me knowing the order of the books and whether or not a book is in the Old or New Testament is a lot more important. But still, the number of books is something that people like to know and something that we often teach kids in our ministries (or at home.)

So here’s an easy way to remember the numbers.

All together, the Bible has 66 books.

Thirty-nine of them are in the Old Testament. Twenty- seven are in the New.

Think about it like this.

Just sort of a Fun Friday Fact.
