Who Wrote The Bible Who wrote the Bible?

Welcome back to our series on the authorship of the Bible. In this post we will explore evidence that points to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as the writers of the four canonical gospels.

Setting aside for now discussions about canonicity, inerrancy, and textual criticism, how much confidence can we have that the four gospels were written by their traditionally-accepted authors?

Because none of the gospel writers identified themselves by name as the author of the text, these foundational books of the Christian faith remain technically anonymous. It is no surprise therefore that skeptics seek to discredit the claims of Christianity by questioning the traditional authorship of the gospels. Likewise it is no surprise that well-meaning proponents of the faith get in over their heads when it comes to defending the traditional authorship. As you can see from spirited discussions like this one (be sure to read…

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

  1. Hi David, it’s been a long time since we’ve been in touch, I don’t usually continue to comment on Men’s Blogs unless asked so thank you for all the likes, I accept these as an invitation to visit and comment when needed and lead to share God’s Truth.

    In response to what is written above, God tells us He wrote the Scriptures, (as confirmed below ) that He inspired all of them, as for errors in Translation, whether deliberate or through man Trusting in their own understanding, God will show these to us too by The empowering of The Holy Spirit as Jesus teaches us all Truth, having asked for both His wisdom (Proverbs 4:7-James 1:5-6) and empowering (Luke 11:13) and so receiving The gift of The Holy Spirit, which means because we Love God and so we show we do, we will know His heart of Love for us and His good plans, His thoughts , Motivation, and His guidelines that are needed for our Maturity and perfection in Him as confirmed in the Scriptures (1Corinthians2: 9-16)

    We either believe we have God’s wisdom and empowering or we Trust in Mankind for fleshy answers, some of whom even question what God tells us is True but than this shows they are Trusting in themselves or others not Him. Worldly study wearies the soul.

    2 Timothy 3 -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 perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

    Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is True, and we are in Him that is True, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life.

    Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops … ( perhaps these are our Computers today )

    Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go. I will guide you with Mine eye.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

    Thanks David for the reblog. I really appreciate your support and have been richly blessed by your blog. You have a genuine, level-headed approach to reading and applying Scripture that always challenges the reader to think. Thank you!
