How We Got Our Bible (Pt. 1)

To say that the Bible is unique is perhaps an understatement.  No other book in the history of mankind has so served to shape and influence the lives of so many for the good than has the Bible.  Written over a period of about 1500 years; comprised of 66 books written in three different languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) on three different continents (Africa, Asia and Europe) by more than 40 different authors most of whom never met or knew each other, coming from totally different backgrounds.  God inspired these men through the agency of His Holy Spirit to write down the exact revelation of His mind and will whilst at the same time making use of their individual personalities and characters.  You have tax-collector by the name of Matthew, a Prime Minister by the name of Daniel, a shepherd by the name of Amos, a King by the name of David and a military general by the name of Joshua.  You have a fisherman by the name of John, a cupbearer by the name of Nehemiah, a priest by the name of Ezekiel, a doctor by the name of Luke and so the list could continue!!  Paul wrote from prison in Rome, Ezekiel from captivity in Babylon and John from exile on the Isle of Patmos.  David wrote from his royal palace in Jerusalem and his son Solomon later did the same.  Yet In spite of this, the 66 books of the Bible speak with such unanimity and consensus, a single voice that’s without contradiction.

This teaching take's a look at the character of the Bible, its structure and it's composition.
