Where Did the Bible Come From?
No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Pet 1:20-21)
Over a span of more than 1,500 years, God moved the hearts of about forty people from various walks of life to write down what they had seen and heard. Teachings, stories, and eyewitness accounts had been passed down orally, on tablets, and on scrolls. These sacred writings, when put together, became the Bible.
The Bible is God’s self-revelation to the world. He speaks to us through the prophets, the apostles, and His own Son, Jesus Christ. It is a record of God’s interaction with people through history. Through these historical events and divine messages, the Bible shows us who God is, where human beings came from, and what God expects from us.
The Bible’s main focus, however, is on the salvation that the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, brings to the earth. It explains how God sent Jesus Christ to re-establish our relationship with Him, and to pave the way to His heavenly kingdom.
