God is complex, yet he wants to be known. He gives us opportunities each day to know who he is. Each of us can experience God through relationships, nature, or by learning from others. One of the best ways to know what he’s is like is by going to the Bible.
The Bible was written by a diverse group of people over thousands of years. They asked the same question we are today: who is God? They used poems, stories, and song to make sense of God and can help us understand him better. While we’ll never fully understand God, we can know what he is like.
5 Bible verses to answer the question: Who is God?
