An Overview of the Christian Bible, and Many Other Things of Interest to the Christian
A reliable voice of authority. More than anything else, people everywhere are looking for something they can depend on.
The Word of God is the only real authority we have. His Word shines light upon human nature. More clearly, it shows us the way to God.
It is in the Bible that we find the answers to life's most important questions.
The Bible is the written record of God's intention. Its theme is salvation through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible is made up of 66 books, written by 40 authors, covering a period of more than 1,500 years.
The Old Testament was written mostly in Hebrew, with a few short passages in Aramaic. The entire Old Testament was translated into Greek about a 100 years before the death of Christ. The New Testament was written in Greek. The English Bible is a translation from these original languages.
As one book, a compilation of many, the Bible is recognized for its historical and literary significance even among those who do not ascribe to its teachings.
Others have taken this one book as a guideline toward following differing paths. There are so many opinions and interpretations of the Bible that it is difficult to know just how we can sift through them all and find the truth.
