What is the Bible? No seriously, if someone asked you that and you had one sentence, what would you say? The Bible is ____________ . Not so easy, is it? At least not when you try to actually convey something of meaning. How about other questions: What is the message of the Bible? How is the Bible put together? Why is the Bible reliable?
Personally, I have wrestled with these questions myself for a while now and I’m still learning more and more. The truth is, when we engage in these areas of study and seek to determine the nature of the Bible, it is incredibly rewarding. It challenges unbelief and skepticism and it builds faith and confidence.
Questions we will consider in what I’ve called Bible 101 are:
- What is the Bible?
- What is the message of the Bible?
- How is the Bible put together?
- Why is the Bible reliable?
