Notice the UNITY of the Bible. it is miraculous!

* The Bible was written over a period of 1,500 years.

• The Bible was written by over 40 different authors (Among them were kings, military leaders, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, tax collectors, poets, statesmen, musicians, scholars and shepherds.)

• The Bible was written in many different places, at many different times and by people experiencing many different moods.

• The Bible was written on three continents: Asia, Africa and Europe.

• The Bible was written in three different languages: Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.

• The Bible is written with many different literary styles: Prose, poetry, historical narrative, romance, law, biography, parable, allegory and prophecy.

• The Bible addresses hundreds of difficult issues without a single contradiction.

• The Bible is a book of great diversity, yet, in spite of this, it unfolds a single continuous story, and it does so without ever contradicting itself.

And that one overarchiing theme and continuous story is the plan of Salvation for lost sinners which is revealed from Genesis to Revelation. It is the road that leads to faith in Jesus Christ as the only hope for Heaven. They looked forward to Christ in the Old Testament. They looked at Christ in the Gospels. We look back to Christ since the Book of Acts and all the way until now in the New Testament Church.
