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.
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

HOW WAS THE BIBLE FORMED?
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the Ten Commandments and the Law, originally given by God to Moses; historical documents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.
