A Book Unlike Any Other: The Holy Bible

What kind of book is the Holy Bible? Who wrote this best seller? And what does the Holy Bible mean for us today?

How can the Bible give answers for all the toughest problems humanity has struggled with for so long? The Holy Bible can give definitive answers because its ultimate author is the greatest expert of all. Our Creator God knows exactly what makes us tick and what causes us to suffer and what makes us thrive.

God tells us He inspired the Holy Bible. Even though the 66 books of the Holy Bible were written over a period of 1,500 years by about 40 authors, each with a personal style, there is an amazing consistency to its message and teaching that displays the ultimate authorship of God (2 Timothy 3:16 ).

The Old Testament clearly identifies many of its sayings as coming directly from God. “More than 3,800 times words are introduced by such formulae as ‘The Lord spoke,’ ‘Thus says the Lord’ and ‘The word of the Lord came’” (Eerdmans’ Handbook to the Bible, 1973, p. 33).

Jesus Christ gave His unqualified support to the inspiration of the Hebrew Bible, what we call the Old Testament today. He said, “Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35 ).

When the apostle Paul wrote, “Scripture says,” it was the same as if he was saying “God says” (Romans 9:17 ; Galatians 3:8 ).
