"The Uniqueness of the Bible"

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16-17

You can trust God's Word. It is God's revelation to man penned by 40 men over a 1500 year time span. Yet the Bible speaks as one voice.

When have you ever gotten 40 people to agree on anything? Yet the Bible speaks in harmony from Genesis to Revelation.

The Bible is unique among all books ever written. Its authors included a political leader (Moses), a fisherman (Peter), a military general (Joshua), a prime minister (Daniel), a doctor (Luke), a king (Solomon), a tax collector (Matthew), a rabbi (Paul), and many others. Yet they speak as one voice.

The Bible was written on three continents (Asia, Africa, and Europe).

It was written in three languages (Hebrew - Old Testament; Aramaic - during the 6th through the 4th centuries BC; Greek - New Testament). Jesus would have read the Bible in Greek.

The Bible has been read by more people and published in more languages than any other book. Between 1950 - 1960 as many as 3,000 translators were hard at work translating the Bible into various languages.

By 1966 the whole Bible had been translated into 246 languages and dialects. One or more whole books of the Bible had been translated into another 739 languages. In fact, at least some of the Bible had been translated into over 1,280 languages by that time.

Why painstakingly take on this task? Because "this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:14).

Saints we are getting close. It's time to draw close and to know our God.
