However, they wrote at different periods in time, and in diverse situations in life. Their writings were eventually gathered together in one volume we call our Bible. So there was never any intention of placing the Bible in a strictly systematic format.

Yet it has marvellous harmony and unity of the main subject, because God who “is NOT a God of Disorder” 2 Cor. 14:33 has inspired the writing of it all. The message of the Bible surpasses that of all other boks ever written.
