Question:How did we get the Bible?
Bible Answer: The Bible was written by God the Holy Spirit and human authors. 2 Peter 1:21 tells
us that men were "moved by the Holy Spirit" when they wrote. What
they wrote was from God. This is why the Bible is also called
the Word of God. The Bible is the very words of God. It does not contain
the Word of God. It is not about the Word of God. It is the Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16 says that scripture is inspired by God. The
Greek word "inspired" means "breathed," that is, scripture was
breathed out from God. God is the real author of scripture.
The prophets, apostles and others were His tools. They used their
own grammar and words when they wrote and it is obvious when one reads the different books they wrote. The words contained in the books are from God.
The Bible was distributed to other people (Luke 1:1-4) and
it was passed from church to church (Col. 4:16-17; 1 Thess 5:27).
In later years history tells us the Christians passed Bibles around
and handwritten copies were made. History tells us the monks diligently
and carefully hand copied the Bible. Kings had copies made such
as the King James Version. Today there are over 5,000 very ancient
parchments and many full copies of the Bible. With the invention
of the printing press, it became possible for the common man to
own a Bible. God has made sure that His Word was preserved.
Bibles have been made down through time. Today the best and
most accurate translations of the Hebrew and Greek Bibles are
the New King James Bible (NKJV), the New American Standard Bible
(NASB) and the New International Bible (NIV).
