 WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

“All Scripture is inspired of God.”​—2 Timothy 3:16, New World Translation.

WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU

Satisfying answers to life’s big questions.​—Proverbs 2:1-5.

Reliable guidance for day-to-day living.​—Psalm 119:105.

Real hope for the future.​—Romans 15:4.

 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. Over 700 years in advance, the Bible foretold that the promised Messiah would be born in Bethlehem, a small town in the land of Judah. (Micah 5:2) Where was Jesus actually born? Why, in that very town!—Matthew 2:1-6.

    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.

 TO THINK ABOUT

How can God’s Word improve your life?

The Bible answers that question at ISAIAH 48:17, 18 and 2 TIMOTHY 3:16, 17.
