The Bible

Most Bible-believing followers of Jesus have probably studied Bible facts at some point in their journey. Sometimes I enjoy reviewing those facts again to remind myself how singularly awesome God’s Word is.  I marvel at how improbable it ever came to be. After more than 2,000 years it remains the world’s all-time best seller.

The Bible was written:

  • over a 1500 year span (from 1400 B.C to A.D. 100)
  • over 40 generations
  • over 40 authors from many walks of life (i.e. – kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, poets, statesmen, scholars)
  • in different places (i.e. – wilderness, dungeon, palaces)
  • at different times (i.e. – war, peace)
  • in different moods (i.e. – heights of joy, depths of despair)
  • on three continents (Asia, Africa, and Europe)
  • in three languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek
