What are the 5 most important books in the Bible?

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

What are the 5 most important books in the Bible?

the first 5...it's the foundation for the rest of the bible.

If I were to pick 5 from the NT, they would be:  John, Acts, Romans, Hebrews, Revelation....if I expand the list to 7, I would throw in 1Cor and Galatians


it I had to pick a mix of 5 from the OT and NT: Genesis, Exodus, John, Acts, Romans

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?
Coming for to carry me home,
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

What about Isaiah, JMF? Pretty prophetic if you ask me.

Yep. 

If taking 5 from Old Testament, probably change to taking: Gen, Ex, Dt, Psa, Isa

Hard to say, though

If someone were to ask which books of the bible they should read and what order to read them in, I would say:
1) Genesis (creation, fall, Israel)
2) Exodus (freedom of Israel from slavery)
3) John (introduction to Jesus fulfillment of Genesis and Exodus)
4) Acts (behavior of Christians)
5) Romans (faith, and accepting other Christians with different beliefs)
6) Lev, Num, Deut (the dreadfulness of the Law of Moses)
7) Galatians (faith, clearing the mind of the Law of Moses)
8 ) Hebrews (the supremacy of the new covenant)
9) Rest of Gospels (focus on Christ)
10) Proverbs
11) Psalms

Everything you need to live a good, moral life can be found in those 5 Books.

I suppose I'll go with Genesis, Exodus, Luke, John, and Hebrews. But it's a difficult list to make.
