THE BIBLE IS DIVINELY INSPIRED
Consider These Intresting Points That Testify That The Bible Was Inspired By God.
~Greenleaf one of the greatest lawyers in our time has authored the authoritative three-volume text, A Treatise on the Law of Evidence (1842), which is still considered "the greatest single authority on evidence in the entire literature of legal procedure."1 Greenleaf literally wrote the rules of evidence for the U.S. legal system. He was an atheist until he accepted a challenge by his students to investigate the case for Christ's resurrection. Greenleaf became a Christian and wrote the classic, Testimony of the Evangelists. "Let [the Gospel's] testimony be sifted, as it were given in a court of justice on the side of the adverse party, the witness being subjected to a rigorous cross-examination. The result, it is confidently believed, will be an undoubting conviction of their integrity, ability, and truth."2- Taken from Lee Strobel
~Sir Lionel Luckhoo (1914-1997) is considered one of the greatest lawyers in British history. He's recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "World's Most Successful Advocate," with 245 consecutive murder acquittals. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II -- twice. Luckhoo declared: "I humbly add I have spent more than 42 years as a defense trial lawyer appearing in many parts of the world and am still in active practice. I have been fortunate to secure a number of successes in jury trials and I say unequivocally the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is so overwhelming that it compels acceptance by proof which leaves absolutely no room for doubt."3- Lee Strobel
The Bible was written for God to reach out to his people. God has inspired the authors to write what he wanted to say, to tell people about his love for them. 2Timothy 3:16; 2Peter 1:20-21; John 10:35; 17:17).
- When writing, they were moved by God’s Holy Spirit. (2Peter 1:21). v The Bible is unique because through all it’s 40 authors, written over a 1,500 year span; over 40 generations, it has the same message throughout.
- There IS Evidence THAT IT IS Divinely inspired AS IT touches on astounding remarkable evidence of History , Science, Mathematics Medicine to the finest detail. It also has Numeral Mathematics within the words, as well as THOUSANDS of Bible codes threaded within and throughout the BIBLE
- It makes no mistakes or no contradictions in the orginal Hebrew text that the bible was written in. The Bible states facts that scientific advancements not revealed for thousands of years. It is an evidence it was truly inspired by God.
- The Bible speaks scientific truth before it being discovered. The Bible describes God hanging the earth "on nothing" (Job 26:7). This was written millennia before Isaac Newton discovered the invisible laws of gravity that showed the earth truly is suspended "on nothing."
- The bible stands separate compared to every other ancient creation account. The Bible pictures the creation of the earth in a very scientific manner. In Genesis 1, the continents are lifted from the seas. Then vegetation is created and, later, animal life—all reproducing "according to its kind"—recognizing fixed genetic laws. The Bible is historical, faithfully reflecting society and culture as history and archaeology would discover them thousands of years later.
- The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in A.D. 1947 provided an incredible proof for the authenticity and reliability of the Old Testament. The Scrolls comprise some 800 documents in tens of thousands of fragments. They confirm word for word identical to the Hebrew Bible. These manuscripts are 1000 years OLDER than the previous oldest manuscripts we have ever found.
It is INTERESTING that the oldest documents EVER found ARE THE Dead Sea Scrolls. (AGAINST ALL ODDS they would even survive and TESIFY to the Maker of the world and bring glory to our father YHWH. They were saved in the precise location with the precise temperature and without sunlight.
- The bible is intact, compared to all the ancient works of substantial size. This is against all odds and expectations. There are now more than 5,300 known Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. Add to that over 10,000 Latin Vulgate and at least 9,300 other early versions and we have MORE THAN 24,000 manuscript copies of portions of the New Testament in existence.
- No other document of ancient times even begins to approach such numbers and confirmation. In comparison with other ancient documents that have available copies versus the originals are - (Caesar-10 copies which are 1000 years older), (Tacitus 20 copies which are 1000 years older) and (Plato 7 copies which are 1200 years older)
- As mentioned above, the Most ASTOUNDING Evidence that YHWH has inspired the bible is the THOUSANDS of ELS Codes, (known as the bible codes) found buried under the text . Check out Evidence below that discuss the evidence. Also a fantastic site http://www.exodus2006.com/ for a list of codes found.
- Gleason Archer, a scholar of biblical studies and languages of recent years, writes about attributes of the Bible: "As I have dealt with one apparent discrepancy after another and have studied the alleged contradictions between the biblical record and the evidence of linguistics, archaeology, or science, my confidence in the trustworthiness of Scripture has been repeatedly verified and strengthened by the discovery that almost every problem in Scripture that has ever been discovered by man, from ancient times until now, has been dealt with in a completely satisfactory manner by the biblical text itself-or else by objective archaeological information" (Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties, Zondervan, Grand Rapids, 1982, p. 12).
- Frank E. Gaebelein, an eminently qualified author and general editor of The Expositor's Bible Commentary, has remarked that "the attitude of suspended judgment toward Bible difficulties . . . is constantly being vindicated, as archaeology has solved one Biblical problem after another, and as painstaking re-examination of discrepancies has finally led to answers" (The Expositor's Bible Commentary, Zondervan, Grand Rapids, 1979, Vol. 1. p. 31).
