The Holy Bible fully explains all about God, His ways

and means with all men

What is the Bible?

The Bible Portrays Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World.

"Behind and beneath the Bible, above and beyond the Bible, is the God of the Bible."  

The Bible is God's written revelation of His will to men. Its central theme is salvation through Jesus Christ. The Bible contains 66 books, written by 40 authors, who wrote over a period covering approximately 1600 years. The Old Testament was written mostly in Hebrew (a few short passages in Aramaic). About 100 years before the Christian Era the entire Old Testament was translated into Greek. The New Testament was written in the Greek language. The English Bibles are a translation from these original languages.

Millions of people today are searching for a reliable voice of authority. The Word of God is the only real authority we have. His Word sheds light on human nature, world problems and human suffering. But beyond that, it clearly reveals the way to God. The message of the Bible is the message of Jesus Christ who said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6). It is the story of salvation; the story of your redemption and mine through Christ; the story of life, of peace, of eternity. Our faith is not dependent upon human knowledge and scientific advance, but upon the unmistakable message of the Word of God.

The Bible has a great tradition and a magnificent heritage. It contains 66 books written over a period of several hundred years by many different men. Yet the message, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, is clear throughout. The 66 books become one.

Who wrote the Bible - and How?

This is an important issue as you need to know that the Bible is actually God’s Word and written by Him, using His prophets to record what He told them to say.

Many people who do not know any better, say that the Bible is not God’s Word. Because they do not believe, they miss out on all of God’s wonderful promises and mislead others. Make sure you find out the truth for yourself.

There are many scriptures that tell us who wrote God’s Word the Bible.

Here are some examples. Notice the various ways in which God speaks to people.

An early example - (Exodus 32:16 NIV) The (Ten commandments ) tablets were the actual work of God; the writing was the writing of God Himself, engraved on the tablets.

That means that by some means God Himself actually wrote on the tablets. (remember Charlton Heston as Moses receiving the commandments on stone in the film)?

(2 Timothy 3:16 NIV) All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness....

That means that God spoke by His Spirit to the spirits of men, who heard this and wrote down what they heard.

(2 Peter 1:21 NIV) For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

That means that all knowledge came from God as the Spirit of God spoke to men, who either wrote it or spoke it.

(Romans 16:25-26 NIV) Now to him who is able to establish you by my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all nations might believe and obey him....

That means that what was hidden in the past was revealed to Paul the Apostle, so that people of all nations might believe what God had revealed to him.

(Jeremiah 1:9 NIV) Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth.

That means that the Spirit of God conveyed what Jeremiah was to speak and he spoke it through his mouth.

(1 Kings 16:1 NIV) Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu son of Hanani against Baasha:

That means that a word of knowledge came from God into Jehu's spirit and he spoke it against Baasha.

So, the Bible is God's word to mankind, to tell of His nature and what God expected of man in this world.
