The Bible: History and Today


And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
—Mark 16:15

Why are many people so quick to believe a word of gossip or rumors about others without any idea if what’s being said is true but need every piece of possible evidence before they are able to believe something the Bible says? A few people that I know proclaim that evolution is real yet, the one given credit for evolution; Charles Darwin in the Origin of the Species could not say or conclude that his ideas were fact but rather, it was all just a theory.

There are many people who believe that the human race, somehow, evolved from another creature such as a gorilla yet, gorillas still exist. In order for something to evolve, something else has to devolve. While I do believe that people have the opportunity to change throughout life and in order to be successful, one must change at various points in their life, there has never been no evidence or sign that one creature changes into another. That is, no species has magically changed into another creation but for some reason, people are willing to believe in such an idea despite no evidence whatsoever.

However, there is physical evidence that backs up the Biblical story of creation and other events. There are the original manuscripts and writings from the authors that have survived throughout history including secular, non-religious documents that show that Jesus was, indeed, going from place to place performing miracles. Therefore, there are many different historical pieces of evidence that show that Jesus not only walked the Earth but that He did, in fact, perform some of the miracles and events written about in the Bible. It’s important to note that the Bible could not possibly tell of all the miracles Jesus performed as there would not be enough space to write or time to read them (John 21:25).

No individual or groups of people have ever been able to disprove the claims of the Bible despite the different texts being written fifteen hundred years apart. The accuracy and consistency of the Bible is amazing and astonishing which, again, further shows the greatness of our Lord and Savior. The Bible is filled with many different types of content including human history (the beginning of man and all of creation, the fall of man and repopulation of the human race, and glimpses of the end); poetry metaphors and allegories of what life is meant to be like which are all examples of English class; historical dates and events in the form of history; calculations that show the Earth’s age and other formations for God’s creations for mathematics; and on and on.

As we read through the Bible, we see that God is clearly at work through His creation. He created us to be obedient to Him and while we are imperfect beings, God was able to not only speak all things into creation (Psalm 33:9) but He passed down the writings of the Bible, or inspired them, through everyday people to write His word (1 Corinthians 2:12-13). Although the Bible was written by everyday people, it has never been proven inaccurate, false, or unreliable and has stood the test of time. The more time goes on, the more that science has lined up with God’s word including scientists now claiming that the world is not millions or billions of years old but rather, just thousands. In short, not only is the Bible the best-selling book in the history of the world but it is the literal and holy word of God.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
—Hebrews 4:12
