The biblical order of the Bible most of us use is different from what Jesus describes. The Bible we generally use is laid out: Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy), the Writings (Psalms and Proverbs, etc), then the Prophets. Jesus lays them out in a different order.

Luke 24:44, “all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.” Here we have the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Writings. I know this might not sound significant, but it has to do with the value we put on scriptural importance.
