The Power & Beauty of the Bible

There is no other book as powerful as the Bible; and no other book that has stood the test of time and scrutiny.

The entire Bible was written so that we may know and worship God through His Son Jesus Christ. The Bible is a volume of 66 different books, letters and poems.

This is what the Bible says about itself:

"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work."

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Archaeological Evidence

There are hundreds of specific documented finds that confirm the truth of the history recorded in the Bible.  “On the whole archaeological work has unquestionably strengthened confidence in the reliability of  the Scriptural record.”

Millar Burrows of Yale

Historical Evidence

From ancient sacred writings to ancient secular historians the Bible continues to be confirmed as historically accurate, and in content, true to the original writings.

Fulfillment of Prophecy in Jesus

Jesus Christ fulfilled 60 major prophecies from the Old Testament.  For example: His birth, type of death, His betrayal, the time in history, etc..

The odds of just eight prophecies being fulfilled are 1 in 10 to the 7th power, or the state of Texas, two feet deep in silver dollars, one marked, one blindfolded man selecting the marked coin.
