      Well, if you are reading a portion of the New Testament everyday or go to a good bible study weekly, and have a heart to study and know the Word of God, it would not seem that overwhelming. To explain all this material in one day can be. Thank you for your comment. Thanks for reading my hub.

      That's a lot to be familiar with. I think most Christians would fall short, at least as far as being able to explain all this in a comprehensive manner is concerned. I know I would.
