THE BIBLE IS GOD’S LOVE LETTER TO YOU

Psalm 119: 1-16

1Blessed are the undefiled in the way, Who walk in the law of the LORD!

2Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,

Who seek Him with the whole heart!

3They also do no iniquity; They walk in His ways.

4You have commanded us to keep Your precepts diligently.

5Oh, that my ways were directed to keep Your statutes!

6Then I would not be ashamed,When I look into all Your commandments.

7I will praise You with uprightness of heart,

When I learn Your righteous judgments.

8I will keep Your statutes; Oh, do not forsake me utterly!

9How can a young man cleanse his way?

By taking heed according to Your word.

10With my whole heart I have sought You;

Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!

11Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You!

12Blessed are You, O LORD! Teach me Your statutes!

13With my lips I have declared all the judgments of Your mouth.

14I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches.

15I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways.

16I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.

The Bible is a collection of works by more than 40 writers,

It is written during a period of about 1,600 years.

Yet the Bible is unified in spirit, outlook and inspiration.

The earliest parts of the Bible

were written at approximately 1500 B.C.

The most recent around 100 after the birth of Jesus..

The original languages of the Bible were Hebrew (Old Testament),

Aramaic (parts of O.T.)

Greek (New Testament).

The Bible is a collection of 66 books --

39 in the Old Testament

and 27 in the New Testament.

The Books contain the Holy Bible, the Word of God.

The Bible is the Inspired Word of God - inspired by God --

and written by man.

2nd Timothy 3:16 says: All Scripture is given by inspiration of God....,

"inspiration" comes from the Greek word: "THEO-NEUS-TOS."

It means "God-breathed" or "inspired"

The Holy Spirit "breathed" the Scriptures to the writers...

while supervising each and every word.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God.

It is Reliable, authoritative, and inerrant

2nd Peter 1:20-21 says:

knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
