Is the Bible Reliable?
What Jews and Christians believe about God is found exclusively in the Bible, a compilation of writings that were written between two and four millennia ago. In the Judeo-Christian beliefs, God has been divinely revealed through these writings, but what does that really mean? Some believe that “God” wrote the Bible while others hold that the writings were inspired by God, as if God was the muse. And though the Bible is filled with a lot of historically accurate information, there’s a lot that’s left unexplained. Add to that reality that almost everything that we know about Jesus comes from the Bible, it’s no wonder some have doubted the veracity of the biblical content. Just now reliable is the Bible?
