Chapter 1 - Letter from a Friend

Who wrote the Bible?

The Bible is really a library of sixty-six books, written by many authors
hundreds of years apart, yet their writings all agree. Obviously their
writing was under God's direction. This is why all the books fit together
so perfectly.

When Jesus was on earth, He constantly quoted from the Old Testament
(the New Testament had not been written then) showing the importance
He placed on the Scriptures.

What did Jesus say about the importance of the Bible (Scriptures)?

You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them
you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about
me.
John 5:39.
