What is Bible
The Bible is a collection of sixty-six books written by more than 40 authors in around 1500 years. 2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is God-breathed” God gave them to the man to correct, rebuke, train and to teach us. The Word of God unfolds as a divine love story between God the Creator and the object of His love, humankind. When we read through the pages of Scripture, we learn about God’s interaction with humans. We learn about His mighty purpose and plans which He held right from the beginning of time throughout history.
The original text was communicated through Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. Most parts of the Old Testament were written in Hebrew and with a small percentage in Aramaic. The New Testament was written in Greek. Bible is the Word of God given to humans to follow God’s instructions and to reach the destination which God has reserved for us. More than 40 authors have penned the Bible under the authority and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
