After reading “Everyday Bible Study, chapters 6-9” I found that God wrote the Bible. The Bible is made up of 66 books and was written over a large time span and has many different Authors like Peter, Matthew, and Timothy to name a few, and all were from various parts
The bible is an old book written a long time ago for an ancient audience. God is the divine author of the bible and he intended for us to be able to read and understand it, even in these current times. However, those ancient years in the time of the roman empire was were Christianity, as we know it, began its first steps. For this to happen, the authors who were inspired, had to make sure that their audience could understand and relate with their words. While we have learned to translate the language of the bible over the years the words and meanings are still the same. Which is why it is important to understand the context in which the Bible was written.
Scripture opens with a witness to the act of God in creation. This fact points to us that understanding the world as the creation of the infinite-personal God is a fundamental starting point in constructing any kind of adequate theology. What is also clear is that it is important to get this understanding right, to the extent that we can do so. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1 HCSB) (Akin, Theology of the church). But with the revelation of the speaking God who has told us what he has done should make us want to please him each and every day and to show him we love him to.
In addition, the Bible is never fixed and is always open to interpretation. This means that inherency

As a person throughly studies the Words of God found in the Bible, one would find that there are many topics and doctrines contained within. One of the major doctrines or teachings found in Scripture is prophecy. Around 28 percent of the Bible is classified as prophecy. The men who wrote these prophecies did not write based off what they thought would happen. Neither did they write them after the events that were predicted took place as some critics of the Bible would claim. These men were inspired by an omnipotent, omniscient God Who knew the events that would take place in the world. After all, “Prophecy is written foreknowledge of the omniscience of our omnipotent God”
BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW 2 Biblical Worldview Sara was at a coffee shop with a friend, Joanna, and started have a discussion. They start to talk about different things happening in the world and how they view them. They talked about how the world begin, how to treat people, and much more. This conversation went on for a while and Sara was using the Bible to back-up what she was saying, while Joanna had nothing to support what she believed in. Sara had a biblical worldview.
Unlike Mythology, narratives of the Bible are actual events that took place dating back to the beginning of time. The conception of The Holy Bible’s compilation started thousands of years ago in the land of Egypt. Initially, the Old Testament Scriptures were written in the Hebrew language, however, they were later translated to the Greek. At the onset of the New Testament writings, they were originally recorded in the Greek language. Forty men transcribed the voice of God, which resulted in sixty-six books of the Holy Bible. The Holy Scriptures explained the creations, formation of the world, God, God’s chosen people, sin, and the plan of salvation as well.
Caitlyn Tasney Honors English 11 Mr. Wade 3 March 2017 A Reason to Believe “A thousand times in history a baby has become a king but only once in history did a king become a baby.” The Bible and other written documentation was written by man, so people think it’s flawed and not the word of God. They’re not able to walk by faith and not by sight. This means that if they don’t see Jesus and the miracles that He performed, they don’t believe all the “stories” in the Bible happened in real life. People who believe in the Bible, walk by faith, meaning that they trust in God. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born of a virgin, died and was resurrected for the sake of all humanity.
Biblical WorldView Biblical 101 James Owulade Jr. Paul’s letter to the Romans presents a systematic approach to the Gospel. This makes the Gospel of Roman an important book when it comes to the Christian Worldview. The Book of Romans covers a wide array of topics that are important to believers to understand and to live by. These topics includes: the attribute and existence of God, origin of creation, problem of evil in conjunction to sin, solution of sin to reach salvation, ethics and morality and lastly hope for humanity/creation. This reflection paper will show what Paul teaches us in regards to these topics and how it is applied to Christian’s worldview.
God’s word is God’s word, not to be changed, rewritten or altered in any fashion or form. Whatever I found that He told us, as Christians to do, I was more than willing to adhere to.
Why And When: The reason that the Bible was created because the stories and books in it was chosen because it taught some sort of lesson that related Christianity and showed examples of what to do and what not to do to please the God. The Bible is a collection of
Many believe God intended the Bible and science to be separate, but not divorced. I generally believe they do go together to an extent, that the Bible is not a science book, but a book with some scientific accuracy. Many scientific studies were founded upon the content of the Bible. The text of the Bible caused many scientists to try to verify or contradict what was mentioned in the Bible. Though the Bible and science do not perfectly line up on the creation of the world, there are many things that science and the Bible agree on. The biblical view of science is that science supports the natural-truth of the Bible. When there are numerous things that are contradicting in the Bible, science is typically defeated by people who believe the Bible to be entirely true, regardless of the scientifically facts shown with research.
