Proof The Bible is the word of God

I was born into a Christian family, so I take my faith for granted. But one question seems to come up. What proof do we have that shows The Bible is the word of God? Can we really trust The Bible and know if The Bible is true? Is there any evidence that the Bible is truly God’s Word? Continue to read as I share proof The Bible is the word of God.

Satan can use this type of question to make us doubt our faith and doubt The Lord. So, it’s important that we are ready with the truth- so when the attack comes- we are ready. 

 

Proof The Bible is the word of God

1. The Bible Is the word of God

The Bible identifies the author as God. For our benefit, He encouraged mankind to record His words in writing.

While there are recurring themes in the Bible, the authors’ individual styles and personalities are also evident.

The things that are recorded in the Bible were not created by humans but by God.

This is demonstrated by the fact that the original manuscripts were error-free and authored by God, who is the ultimate authority on all subjects and who is without flaw so it is clear that God has authority in every area covered.

2. The Bible Is Unique and Unified

The Bible stands out over all other literature because its message is consistent across all 66 of its books.

Over the course of 1,500 years, it was written by more than 40 distinct authors, including shepherds, monarchs, priests, intellectuals, fishermen, and prophets.

The Bible does, however, convey a consistent message despite its authors’ use of a wide range of genres, and goals for their writing, and exhibited a broad range of emotions.

3. The Bible Has Been Faithfully Passed Down

Isn’t the Bible just a copy of a copy? This is a typical denial of the Bible’s accuracy. The scribes who copied the Bible did so meticulously. Several precautions, such as counting the number of letters on a page and in a line, were used to verify accuracy. There are a few minor differences among some manuscripts, but we can almost always determine the original phrasing. Thanks to the abundance of early texts and fragments, we can find out the original wording in nearly every case.

4. The Bible Contains Fulfilled Prophecy

The Bible’s frequent use of prophecy serves as proof of its divine origin. Only the Bible provides precise, prescient prophesy because only the God of the Bible has the knowledge of the future and the ability to make it come to pass (Isaiah 46:9–12).

It shows every messianic Old Testament prophecy and then how those were fulfilled in the New Testament.

5. The Bible Contains the Key to Eternal Life

Everyone wants the secret to having eternal life. Many people spend crazy amounts of money and time trying to find the answer. I haven’t heard of anyone finding the source of eternal life.

That’s because they are looking in the wrong place. The Bible contains the key to eternal life. Nothing else.

The Bible’s message provides ultimate answers to our greatest need (God’s forgiveness) and meets our deepest desire (eternal life).  In order to atone for our sins, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die in our place. God raised Jesus Christ from the grave three days after He died in order to fulfil His justice. Three days later God raised Him from the dead.

The answer to our greatest need and deepest longing is the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

6. The accuracy of the Bible is confirmed by archaeology and history

7. The Bible speaks of prophecies that are already fulfilled

8. The Bible and science are in agreement

9. The Bible was written by eyewitnesses

10. The claims of Christ concerning the Scriptures

11. The Bible has the power to change lives

12. The Bible’s primary author can be trusted

Conclusion

Ultimately, We Must See for Ourselves A person can know the Bible is God’s Word by first examining the claims of Scripture, considering the evidence for those claims and then personally accepting the challenge of Scripture to “taste and see” if these things are true. The psalmist gave the following challenge:

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalm 34:8 NKJV)
