An Introduction to the Bible: God’s Holy Word

The Bible is the Christian cannon of scriptures and its Old Testament is the cannon of Jewish scripture. The Bible It is a collection of 66 books. The Old Testament has 39 books and the New Testament has 27 books. More Bibles have been printed and translated into more languages than any other book.

 The Bible is much more than a collection of religious writings. It is neither a collection of myths nor a mixture of myth and history. The Bible is made up of mainly history, law, poetry, prophecy, wisdom, doctrine and theology. No other ancient historical document is as well persevered as the Bible since it has been carefully copied from the originals and carefully translated into many languages. The Bible’s historical accounts are unusually honest for ancient historical accounts since it lacks the flattering distortions of leaders found in other cultures. The Bible openly depicts the failings of even the godliest of kings such as David.

The Bible is the most loved book ever written being cherished by millions of Christians who read and live by the Bible. Ironically the Bible is the most heated book ever written since those who hate Christians also tend to hate the Bible. It contuses to exist despite numerous efforts to destroy it by burning it, banning it and attaching its legitimacy

The Bible is the Word of God written by God through human authors through divine inspiration of their vary words making it infallible. God’s preservation of his word explains why it is so well preserved.
