Why is reading the Bible a bit like doing a jigsaw puzzle?

Many parts of the Bible are difficult to understand. Some people believe that parts of the Bible are like poetry where God shows people a way of thinking about things. Other parts need to be studied over and over again and, like a jigsaw puzzle, only make sense when you can see how the rest fits together.

Christians believe that the more people read the Bible the more they find out about God. They believe it is important to find out what is in the whole Bible so they can see the big picture of who God is, what he has done and how he is at work in people’s lives today.
