Hi! I am fogged in with an inversion in the NW corner of the USA. Snow would at least be brighter at this point. Welcome to our forum.
I do pray that the you will come to know the God of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as your best friend and loving Father.
We learn about His character in the Bible, especially the New Testament. Jesus came to reveal our Father God to us by exemplifying Him as recorded in the Gospels, the first 4 books of the New Testament. The beliefs of the Christian faith are found in the rest of the New Testament, since the church was not founded until after Jesus died on the cross, taking upon Himself the sins of the world by suffering and dying in our place.. After He arose from the dead and ascended into heaven, God the Holy Spirit was sent to live in Christians. This occurred in the book of Acts (right after the Gospels) and was the birth of the church. So I suggest you start by reading the 4 Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
We understand the Bible by first praying and asking God to forgive us of our sins and imperfections, and to send His Holy Spirit to us to help us understand His Words and to conform us to be more like Jesus, the only perfect man. Jesus lived in heaven with Father God from before creation and was known then as The Word and I AM. The Word, the Father and the Holy Spirit are one God and all took part in creating all things. The Word/Jesus left heaven to be born in the form of man to reveal our loving merciful Father God to us, and to die for us so that we can be forgiven. He is the Jewish Messiah.
That being said, Jesus was of the Jewish faith so the foundation and history behind the church is the Old Testament of the Bible starting in Genesis.
I hope this helps.
