  • 2 Tim 3:16-17 (NKJV) "ALL SCRIPTURE is given by INSPIRATION of GOD, & is PROFITABLE for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in RIGHTEOUSNESS, that the man of God may be COMPLETE, thoroughly Equipped for every GOOD WORK."
  • 2 Tim 2:15 (KJV) "STUDY to show yourself APPROVED unto God, a WORKMAN that needeth not to be ASHAMED, RIGHTLY dividing the WORD of TRUTH."

The Bible is a Collection of 66 Books, and was written by God thru Men (about 40 Men) over a period of about 1550 Years dating from 1450 B.C. (the time of Moses) to about 100 A.D. (following the Death & Resurrection of Jesus Christ).

Bible Facts—
  • The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered off the Northwest Shore of the Dead Seas in 1947 (between 1947 and 1956) in Qumran (near Jerusalem) by a Shepherd who discovered some of the many of these Scrolls in a cave. They then found Tens of Thousands of fragmented Scrolls in Eleven caves. These Scrolls date back from 250 B.C. to A.D. 68 and Represent roughly around 900 different documents.
  • The First Translation of the English Bible was initiated by John Wycliffe 1382
    and completed by John Purvey—1388.
  • The Bible has been translated into 2,018 languages, with countless more partial translations,
    and audio translations
  • The Bible was written in three languages: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek.
  • The Bible was divided into chapters by Stephen Langton in 1228.
  • The Old Testament was divided into verses by R. Nathan in 1488 and the New Testament
    by Robert Stephanus in 1551.
  • The entire Bible divided into Chapters and Verses first appeared in the Geneva Bible of 1560.
  • The entire New Testament as we know it today, was "Canonized" before the year 375 A.D.
  • The Old Testament had previously been Canonized long before the advent of Christ.
  • The word "Canon" comes front the Greek word "Kanon," meaning a Measuring Rod.
    So to have the Bible "Canonized" meant that it had been measured by the standard or test of
    divine inspiration and authority. It is the collection of writings or books accepted by the
    Apostles and leadership of the early Christian Church as a basis for Christian belief.
  • Today the Bible is the largest seller of all books published

Bible Scriptures

  • Romans 10:17 (NKJV) "FAITH comes by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD of GOD."

  • Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) "WITHOUT FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to PLEASE HIM (GOD), for he who comes to God must BELIEVE that He is, and that HE is a REWARDER of those who DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM."

  • Psalms 1:1-2 (NKJV) "BLESSED is the man who walks NOT in the COUNSEL of the UNGODLY, NOR stands in the PATH of SINNERS, NOR sits in the seat of the SCORNFUL; But his DELIGHT is in the LAW of the LORD, and in His law he MEDITATES DAY and NIGHT."

  • Joshua 1:8 (NLT) "STUDY this BOOK of the Law CONTINUALLY. MEDITATE on it DAY and NIGHT so you may be sure to OBEY ALL that is written in it."

God's Word is Living & Powerful!

  • Hebrews 4:12-16 (NLT) “For the WORD OF GOD is ALIVE and POWERFUL. It is SHARPER than the SHARPEST TWO-EDGED SWORD, cutting between SOUL and SPIRIT, between JOINT and MARROW. It EXPOSES our INNERMOST THOUGHTS and DESIRES. NOTHING in all Creation is hidden from God. Everything is NAKED and EXPOSED before His Eyes, and He is the one to whom we are ACCOUNTABLE. So then, since we have a GREAT HIGH PRIEST who has entered HEAVEN, JESUS the SON OF GOD, let us HOLD FIRMLY to what we BELIEVE. This HIGH PRIEST of ours UNDERSTANDS our WEAKNESSES, for He Faced ALL of the same TESTINGS we do, yet he did NOT SIN. So let us come BOLDLY to the THRONE of our GRACIOUS GOD. There we will receive HIS MERCY, and we will find GRACE to HELP US when we need it most.”
