135. Isn’t the Bible written by Man?

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness according to 2 Timothy 3 verse 16. For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but by holy men of God, as they were moved upon by the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1 verse 21). In Revelation 1 verse 10, John wrote the testimony of what he saw in a vision while he was caught up in worship in the Holy Spirit on the Lord’s day.

The Bible is a compilation of 66 books written by forty different authors. The sixty-six books represent a number of literary genres such as historical, poetic, prophetic, songs, gospels, and epistles or letters to the churches. When the Holy Bible was compiled the result was called the Canon of Scripture. Early Church fathers studied very intently the content of each book and agreed that the sixty-six books of the Bible had divine authenticity to be included in the Canon. They asserted strongly that they relied entirely on Divine inspiration to make this compilation.

When reading the Qur’an, it must be read it in Arabic to worship Allâh. There are verses in the Qur’an or Hadith that instruct the reader to worship Allâh in Arabic. But faith to believe it’s revelation in Arabic comes from Allâh, so we need to read the Qur’an and worship in Arabic to avoid anybody trying to corrupt the text.
