Claims of Bible Authorship

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

 

Various writers, preachers, etc. have ideas about how the Bible was written and who the author or authors were. In this Article we will examine some of those ideas. Some people, such as the following writer, say that God was the writer of the Bible, that he told the writers what to write.

"How can a book that is written in a span of 1,600 years by forty men be so accurate and consistent? The Bible is accurate and consistent because it actually has only one Author.

The Bible says, "Every Scripture is God-breathed." (2 Timothy 3:16, WEB.) "Scripture" means "writing," and here, it refers to the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. What does "God-breathed" mean? It means that it was God, Jehovah, who told the forty men what to write. Jehovah is the Author, and the men acted like His secretaries, who recorded down in writing what He told them to write. This is why the Bible is accurate and consistent--it only has one Author!1"
