Rev.-David-Deal2Q & A What does Reverend Deal say?

 “All Scripture is God – breathed”

      Question: Who is the author of the Bible?

ANSWER:  Technically, the Bible is one book, but it is comprised of many books. The Bible was written by at least 40 different authors, covering a period of 1500 years. Please note that the majority of the 40 authors never saw or heard of each other. Yet its unity and message are so apparent it is very easy to think of it having just one author. That isn’t anything but the power of God himself. Hallelujah.  2 Timothy 3:16 says that ‘All scripture is given by the inspiration of God’. The Holy Scriptures (although the word bible doesn’t appear in the Scriptures) was written in three original biblical languages: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. Of the Sixty-six (66) books in the Bible fifty-five (55) are identified by tradition and history. Eleven (11) books whose authors are not known are: Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Esther, Job, and Hebrews (many preachers, theologians, historians, biblical scholars, etc. vehemently claims that Paul is the author of Hebrews). 

It is most interesting of the variety of occupational backgrounds which are represented by those authors who are known: Two of the writers were kings – David and Solomon

Two were priest – Jeremiah and Ezekiel

Luke was a Doctor

Two were fishermen – Peter and John

Two were shepherds – Moses and Amos

Paul was a Pharisee and a theologian among other things

Daniel was a statesmen

Matthew was a tax collector

Joshua was a soldier

Ezra was a scribe

Nehemiah was a butler
