Farmers, fishermen, priests, physicians, politicians, kings, and shepherds ― God used people from various backgrounds to pen his book called the Bible. He even used an IRS agent named Matthew to write a biography of his Son Jesus. But how do we know the Bible is the word of God?
One proof is its amazing continuity. Think about it. Sixty-six books written over 1600 years by 40 authors in 3 languages on 3 continentsall speak with a seamless unity. One continuous drama of redemption, from paradise lost to paradise regained. How could this be?
There is only one plausible explanation. The superintending mind of God inspired the writing of these books and pieced them together like a jigsaw puzzle.
