Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 3)

Third in the series and a good look at why we need to delve further when we encounter critics of the Bible. There are many times personal agendas at work.

Who Wrote The Bible Who wrote the Bible?

For those who’ve been following our current series, it’s time to get into the battle for the Bible. (You might need a cup of coffee to get through this one.)

We’re about to give you some information that will help you stand tall at any water cooler, but with two caveats before we check into the debate. First, we’re about discovering the truth—not defending dogma or tradition for tradition’s sake. Second, we fight with gentleness and respect—the objective of apologetics done right is to remove obstacles, not to win an argument. And for those who are new to Veracity, as a matter of ethics, on this blog we don’t tell you what to think.

In our previous posts on the subject, we laid out the traditionally accepted authors of the Bible. As you…

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David

One Response to Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 3)

    Thanks David for the reposts. You’ve rightly framed one of the main ideas of this post: when we run into a challenge such as the Documentary Hypothesis, which may appear to be logical and plausable at first blush, we shouldn’t be concerned about our faith being shaken. I have experienced many affirmations of my faith by taking the challenges and doing some homework–that’s what personal discipleship is all about. The amazingly simple plumb line is that Christianity is about the truth. I really can’t describe the joy and confidence that come from seeing that play out in one answered challenge after another.
