The Bible: Fact or Fiction?
Study the Bible for yourself… Read through its pages, and discover the one, our Lord Jesus Christ, who can set you free to live forever for Him.
The first suggestion for people when they decide to be critical of the Bible is for them to study it. What We have found is that many people lean on the “experts” without looking into the Bible themselves. It’s a shame not to look into the truth of the Bible and follow those who seek to slander and defame. It’s also interesting to note that the Pharisees in Christ’s day accused Him as a false Messiah. Their charge surrounded the fact that they thought Jesus had come from Galilee and not Bethlehem. If they would have done their homework, they would have found that Christ was born in Bethlehem just as the Bible said in (Micah 5:2), “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” When we continue our research we find that the Messiah, Jesus Christ would be based in Galilee. (Isaiah 9:1- 2), “Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” (See also Matthew 4:12-17) Why didn’t the Pharisees look into His birth and ministry and see if it aligned with Scripture? Unfortunately, they would rather lean on bias and prejudice like many do today who choose not to believe and would rather criticise and slander.
Not only do we find many who make biased judgments concerning the Bible, but if they would read it with sincerity and study it earnestly, they would discover as many have, how the Bible is not only the source for truth, but it is the truth. The Bible follows the theme of history and is the greatest history book ever written. The people within its pages have been proven in many ways as real people and nations. Archaeology has discovered remains of these and their societies. As well as this, the prophecy of the Bible is proven as factual and verified in many ways. This is a great and exhaustive subject for a short article. Study the Bible for yourself before making biased judgments due to what you hear and read on the subject of those seeking to criticise. Read through its pages, and discover the one, our Lord Jesus Christ, who can set you free to live forever for Him.
