THE BIBLE IS DIVINELY INSPIRED
- Reliability of the Manuscript evident by the enormous number of manuscripts (more than 24,000), the very short time span between the original and the other manuscripts
- The Unity of the BIBLE- Inspired by YHWH One of the most amazing things about the Bible is that although it was written by over 40 men of different backgrounds over a period of 1500 years, there is a remarkable unity from cover to cover, an underlying and consistent theme: "God's salvation of man through the Messiah." Why is it that we have Bible CODES through out the entire BIBLE ?
- Old Testament scholar Gleason Archer Commented on the Dead Sea Scrolls- "they proved to be word for word identical with our standard Hebrew Bible in more that 95 per cent of the text. The 5 per cent of variation consisted chiefly of obvious slips of the pen and variations in spelling." No other historical literature has been so carefully preserved and historically confirmed”
- "We have given practical proof of our reverence for our own Scriptures. For although such long ages have now passed, no one has ventured either to add, or to remove, or to alter a syllable; and it is an instinct with every Jew, from the day of his birth, to regard them as the decrees of God, to abide by them, and, if need be, cheerfully to die for them"- Josephus
- Luke mentions other particulars about the offices and titles of officials of the Roman Empire. In every case he gets it right, as confirmed by archaeological discoveries many centuries later."One of the most remarkable tokens of (Luke's) accuracy is his sure familiarity with the proper titles of all the notable persons who are mentioned . . . Cyprus, for example, which was an imperial province until 22 BC, became a senatorial province in that year, and was therefore governed no longer by an imperial legate but by a proconsul. And so, when Paul and Barnabas arrived in Cyprus about AD 47, it was the proconsul Sergius Paullus whom they met . . ." (F.F.
