Is the Bible Trustworthy?

People sometimes say: "The Bible is just a bunch of fairy tales and stories to scare people, like those in the Old Testament about stoning people to death!" Maybe what they don't realize is that the Bible is unique of all books in the world. It makes extraordinary claims about itself!

The Bible claims that it is the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).  Ken Hemphill in his book "Core Convictions", on page 5 states: "The Bible is the record of God's quest to make Himself known for the purpose of inviting people into dynamic, eternal relationship with Him".

Consider the attributes of this unique, extraordinary book.

  • Despite countless attempts to destroy and discredit it, the Bible remains today a best-seller. Its longevity is due to extremely careful copying of manuscripts by Scribes dedicated to this task, preserving the original text over many generations.
  • Be amazed by the Unity of Theme in the Bible from beginning to end. The Old Testament points forward to Jesus, New Testament describes the life of Jesus, and after His resurrection, it points back to Jesus.
  • The 66 books of the Bible were written over 1500 years, by 40 different authors from different backgrounds, on 3 continents, writing in different languages, and all writing about the same theme, God's plan of redemption for mankind, who rebelled against Him. (See https://answersingenesis.org/the-word-of-god/3-unity-of-the-bible/
  • Archaeological and historical evidence of real people and places named in the Bible. (The Stones Cry Out, Tom McCall, Chapter 6 page 55)
  • Every single prophecy to date has come true. (Evidence That Demands a Verdict, Josh McDowell)
  • Dead Sea Scrolls dated prior to time of Christ are identical to the biblical manuscripts.
