How Did the Bible Come to Us?

Did you know our Bible is God-breathed or exhaled out from God? (II Timothy 3:16-17) Yes, God Almighty is the Author. God’s Spirit moved forty-four or forty-five different individuals to pen His Word, over a period of about fifteen hundred years.


Jerome, an ancient historian and bible translator, called the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments a Divine Library.



God, Himself, spoke His ten commandments from Mount Sinai and the Israelites heard His voice and trembled. In almost 4,000 references, Bible writers penned the Lord spoke audibly.

 Truly, our amazing Bible came to us by supernatural means and in the original languages, it is perfect and incapable of error.
So what does it say about us when we don’t believe God’s word?
Our excuse comes with thinking, maybe the original languages are inerrant, but the translations are man’s doing and man is fallible.

However, think about this…


If we truly believe God is powerful enough to speak the universe into being, to form man from the dust of the earth and breathe into him the breath of life, can we honestly say He is not powerful enough to watch over the translation of His word?

Of course He is.

So again, what does it say about us when we don’t believe all of God’s word, when we pick and choose the parts we want to obey?

Maybe now we realize our error, then what can we do? What should we do?

What will we do?


Remember:
“The grass withers…
…the flower fades,
…but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8
