Christianity is a religion that recognizes the Bible as the Truth
Word of God.
You must believe that all the contents in the Bible are historical facts, recorded as the inspiration of God, and prophecy of the facts to come.
has preserved the Word equally with his ability.
Ps.12:7 You shall keep them, O LORD, You shall
preserve them from this generation forever.
However, nowadays, liberalism, which does not believe the contents of the Bible as it is and rationally interprete, and the giftism that charismatic
which neglect the truth of the Bible and pursues dialects and cure are rampant in Christianity.
In addition, atheists use the Bible as an excuse not to believe in God, promoting it as a story that is not the word of God but a story that is made up of ancient myths.
2Tim.3:16~17 All Scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and 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.
2Pet.1:20~21 knowing this first, that no prophecy
of Scripture is of any private interpretation,
All the records of the Bible are written by men
but inspired by God, to educate the doctrine of salvation, the rebuke of faults and sins, and to educate them with the righteousness of God.
for prophecy never
came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were
moved by the Holy Spirit.
Peter said that the Bible was not written by the private will of a person, but by the impression of the Holy Spirit.
The original of the Bible has been lost for a long time, but many manuscripts contain have
the same contents, proving that the Bible certainly existed.
The Bibles, written by different authors of different eras, are not contradictory, has consistency and association, and many prophecies have been accurately achieved
prove the authority of the Bible.
It is also revealed that the things recorded in the Bible are historical facts through ancient relics of biblical archaeology.
Originally, the word 'Bible' means a Book.
But it is not a book made by human thought, but a book written by God's inspiration.
As we know a book, we can know the author's thoughts, and if we read the Bible, we can know the nature and will of God.
All things in this world eventually rot away, but the
Words of God, who is the first and last, is eternal.
John17:3 "And this is eternal life, that
they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You
That is why the only way for humans to get eternal life is to know about the only true God and Jesus Christ
sent by Father.
'Why do I live?', 'What should I live for?', 'How should I live?', 'Where do I come from and where do I go? '
No matter how much human beings worry themselves, they can not get answer.
Only God who created man knows the answer.
Human philosophy and ideas are just
uncertain speculations and assumptions.
We can never avoid death, avoid judgment, or get eternal life
on our own.
Therefore, believing and following the Bible as the Words of God is the most basic attitude of the person who is saved.
the Record of Bible

The Bible began with Moses 3,500 years ago and recorded the Word of God for 1,600 years until the apostle John 1,900 years ago.
Heb.3:4 For every house is built by someone,
but He who built all things is God.
Is.45:18 For thus says the LORD, Who created
the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has
established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to
be inhabited: "I am the LORD, and there is no other.
the reason people go to hell because they can not be saved is because they do not know God's love and do not come back.
The Bible is a letter of love from God who desperately seeks us.
The pictures above are the Scrolls Bible, which is hidden in the caves of Qumran before the Israelites were scathed around the world by the wrath of God for sin, persecuted and mocked, and killed, and a young man discovered in this cave in 1947.
Jer.36:2 "Take a scroll of a book and
write on it all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel,
against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke
to you, from the days of Josiah even to this day.
2. The credibility of the Old Testament
So let's start by looking at how credible the Old Testament is. There was a lot of controversy about it. Because until the 1940s, the oldest Old Testament copies were only the Massoretic text recorded around 900 AD, so many have been suspected. The last book of the Old Testament, the Malachi Book, was recorded around 400 BC, and it was suspected that the Massoretic text written 1300 years later, and that many errors would have been included.
By the way, a great discovery was made. In 1945, in the Qumran hills near the Dead Sea in eastern Israel, Bedwin Shepherds found the lost sheep and threw stones to find the sheep that would have entered the cave. It’s hard to get in and out, so He put threw a
stone in the cave, whether
there is a sheep
But once there was no sheep, and there was pottery breaking
sound. So He thought there is treasure box.But
There was no treasure in the cave, but
there was a jar, in
it there was a leather scroll that looked useless.
Shepherds considered scrolls worthless and sold them to antique at a low price; the antique merchant did not know what they were. But he thought it was something expensive and sold it to the bishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church at a much higher price. It was taken to the United States and, after the research of the Israeli Old Testament scholar, it was revealed that it was Dead sea scrolls of the Old Testament recorded around 125 BC.
The Dead sea scrolls
was recorded only 270 years after the Malachi was recorded. There was a lot of criticism that the Massoretic text was recorded 1300 years later, and the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls reduced the vacancy by 1100 years.
Since then, many archaeologists have found copies of the Old Testament as well as some of the New Testament in 11 caves in the Qumran area near the Dead Sea.
The Old Testaments were kept in the same jar as the figure on the left.
The right is a picture of the Isaiah of the Dead Sea scrolls which are written in Hebrew. The Dead Sea Scrolls
are currently housed in the Israel Museum
in Jerusalem, and the building is in the shape of a jar lid, which is built
strong enough to prevent bombs from being destroyed.
The Dead Sea
scrolls and Massoretic text made 1025 years later, how similar these two were, and it was surprisingly revealed that the two copies were completely consistent. It was revealed that the Massoretic text was the same Bible as the the Dead Sea
Scrolls, and it would be the same as the original of the previous Bible. The Bible we have is the same Bible as the Bible recorded by Moses and recorded by various prophets.
The New Testament is written in Greek, and the Old Testament is written in Hebrew.
What is the secret to the precise preservation of the Old Testament without the error
passed millennium? It is found in Jewish customs. There were separate biblical copying experts who only copied the Bible among the Jews. They were called Talmudists, who copied the Bible, and there were nineteen copying rules.
If you look at some of the rules, first, always wear the same dress and copy, and if you change your clothes, you can change your mind. You should use only
black ink. Copy them on clean animal skin, and write the gap between letters and letters as narrowly as possible. This is because heretics should not add letter by their own will later.
And if you copy the Bible for your life, you would have completely memorized Psalm 23, for example. No matter how well you know, you must see and write the original without relying on memorization. And when you use these words, God, Yahweh, Elohim, you should never look at anyone, because if you misuse God's name, it will be a big deal.
3. The Reliability of the New Testament
Then let's compare the New Testament with Homer's Iliad by the old-book verification method.
Iliad has 643 copies, the first copies were recorded 500 years later in 400 BC, and the errors between books are 5%. On the other hand, the New Testament has a total of 24,633 copies, and the first copy of the original AD100 appeared just 25 years later. And the degree of error between copies is only 0.5%. So, when we compare the accuracy of Iliad with the accuracy of the New Testament, we can see that the New Testament is 8,000 times more accurate when Iliad is correctly 1.This is an objective test result. It is more accurate than Shakespeare's play.
I know that the Bible is the most accurate book in human books, but 0.5% have problems with why there is an error. So, when we analyzed the error, 80% was found to be spelling wrong; the remaining 20% was found to be a connection error. It is 0.5%, but it is judged that there is no error.
The right picture is the New Testament Hebrews written in the papyrus.
The left is a handwriting tool that the people of the early church recorded the Bible, the Word of God, and they were inked on a pen and recorded on papyrus or sheep leather.
4. Propagation of the Bible
Martin Luther, a Catholic priest, is wrong to admire tradition more than the Bible, and it is the Reformation that started with the idea of
going back to the Bible.
Luther's Reformation was successful because of Gutenberg's development of printing; when they printed a large number of rare Bibles, anyone could see the Bible.
5. Composition of the Bible
The entire Bible is divided into two parts: the Old Testament and the New Testament.
a) Old Testament
The Old Testament refers to the first half of the Bible, which consists of 39 volumes and classified:
