The Bible is not an ordinary book. It is inspired or breathed out by God himself, which makes it special and spiritual. Because of these truths, reading the Bible requires faith in God and not just intellect and understanding.

Faith is the intense belief in something or someone even though you cannot see or touch what you believe in. That’s exactly how Christianity works. No one alive today has witnessed what Jesus Christ did on the cross, but because the Bible says so, we use our faith to believe it.
