Would you say it is . . .
a book of human wisdom?
a book of myths and legends?
the Word of God?
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
“All Scripture is inspired of God.”
WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU
CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?
Yes, for at least three reasons:
Amazing harmony. The Bible was written over a period of 1,600 years by some 40 different people. Most of them never met one another. Yet, the entire book is harmonious, with one central theme!
Honest history. Secular historians seem quick to cover over the defeats of their people. In contrast, Bible writers candidly recorded both their personal failings and those of their nation.
—2 Chronicles 36:15, 16; Psalm 51:1-4.
Reliable prophecy. The Bible foretold the destruction of the ancient city of Babylon some 200 years in advance. (Isaiah 13:17-22) It revealed not only the manner in which Babylon would fall but even the name of its conqueror!
Numerous other Bible prophecies were also fulfilled down to the smallest detail. But is that not what we would expect of the Word of God?
—2 Peter 1:21.
