(help! ) cl: how was the bible formed?


The stories of jesus and his sacrifices, and his allies

the bible was formed by writting it to something

The Bible is the holy scripture of the Christian religion, purporting to tell the history of the Earth from its earliest creation to the spread of Christianity in the first century A.D. Both the Old Testament and the New Testament have undergone changes over the centuries, including the the publication of the King James Bible in 1611 and the addition of several books that were discovered later.

Old Testament

The Old Testament is the first section of the Bible, covering the creation of Earth through Noah and the flood, Moses and more, finishing with the Jews being expelled to Babylon.

The Bible’s Old Testament is very similar to the Hebrew Bible, which has origins in the ancient religion of Judaism. The exact beginnings of the Jewish religion are unknown, but the first known mention of Israel is an Egyptian inscription from the 13th century B.C.

The earliest known mention of the Jewish god Yahweh is in an inscription relating to the King of Moab in the 9th century B.C. It

Scholars now believe that the stories that would become the Bible were disseminated by word of mouth across the centuries, in the form of oral tales and poetry – perhaps as a means of forging a collective identity among the tribes of Israel. Eventually, these stories were collated and written down.

Hezekiah. It was during the reign of Hezekiah of Judah in the 8th century B.C. that historians believe what would become the Old Testament began to take form, the result of royal scribes recording royal history and heroic legends.

The Bible is an assorted collection of ancient writings. Christians believe there is something

special about these works because God orchestrated their formation. Of course, ordinary people

like you and me wrote the various poems and letters and historical accounts that became books of

the Bible. But somehow God inspired these writings, unlike any other works of literature, so

that they provide us with a unique and accurate picture of life, history, reality, and God himself.

This raises a question—if so much is riding on this collection of books, how do we know we

have the “right” books? What if God inspired someone, but their book didn’t make the cut? Or

what if we got the wrong books and, consequently, our whole view of God is wrong?

Fortunately, there’s ample historical documentation about the formation of the Bible that can be

of great help as we tackle these challenging questions.

To begin with, little debate exist about the Old Testament. Early in their history, the Jewish

people began to collect writings that were important to their history and faith. These included

the Ten Commandments and the Law, originally given by God to Moses; historical documents

that traced God’s relationship with humanity and Israel; poems, songs, and wisdom literature

that Israel used for worship and character formation; and the messages of great prophets whom

God called to guide and correct the people.

By the time of Jesus, most Jews considered this collection of works authoritative. This

Hebrew Bible included thirty-nine different books (the same books Christians call the Old

Testament, though in different order) and described events from the creation of the world until

roughly 400 B.C. Various other Jewish books, later called the Apocrypha, were written between

400 B.C. and the time of Jesus, but Jews did not consider them as part of the authoritative

canon. Jesus himself only quoted from Old Testament books and never referenced the

apocryphal writings. There remain some Christians today (e.g., the Roman Catholic Church)

that include the Apocrypha in their Bibles, but neither Jews nor early Christians believed in their

authority and we should follow their lead.


1. Biblical inerrancy is the belief that the Bible "is without error or fault in all its teaching"; or, at least, that "Scripture in the original manuscripts does not affirm anything that is contrary to fact". Some equate inerrancy with biblical infallibility; others do not.

2. Scholars now believe that the stories that would become the Bible were disseminated by word of mouth across the centuries, in the form of oral tales and poetry – perhaps as a means of forging a collective identity among the tribes of Israel. Eventually, these stories were collated and written down.

3. Simply, To share the words of God.
