Well-known Bible quotes include several verses in Genesis 1, John 3:16, Matthew 28:19, 2 Timothy 3:16 and Acts 2:38. Topics covered in these passages include the creation of the world and the first man and woman, salvation in Christ and Jesus' commission of his disciples to baptize and preach.
The first chapter of Genesis covers the creation of the world, which is presented as taking place within six days, although Christians disagree as to whether these were six literal days or a figurative use of speech. Verse 27 details the creation of the first man and woman.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus instructs his disciples to preach the Gospel worldwide and to bring in new believers via baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. A statement in support of the divine inspiration of scripture appears in 2 Timothy 3:16, which also proposes the Bible as a tool for teaching, correcting mistaken notions and growing in the Christian life.
John 3:16 identifies Jesus as the Son of God and the way to eternal life. In Acts 2:38, the apostle Peter calls upon unbelievers to repent and be baptized in order to receive forgiveness of sins and preparation for the Holy Spirit.
