“…The Bible… Truth or Fiction? Who? What? When? Where? And, WHY…?

Who?  What?  When? Where?  And, WHY?The Bible…. Truth or Fiction?

It is often said, by those who are weak in FAITH, or simply ‘do not believe’… that the Bible is a ‘bunch of fairy tales.’  Even the ‘liberal professors, and educators’… are telling our youth… there is “no God”… that… it is all made up.  I don’t even engage those types of people, as I’m not qualified to argue the point… so, I leave that up to the Wisdom of Jesus… to handle.  That said, though… I ask…?

WHO would have the ‘capacity’ to ‘make up all these biblical stories,’ make the interconnection from the Old Testament to the New Testament, and then… who would even ‘think to do it,’ and, who would have the ‘time to do it,’ and lastly….I ask, ‘who would even care,’ or even be able to foresee the potential conflict as to the ‘authenticity’ or pure ‘fairy tale?’  Who?  What?  When? Where?  And, WHY?

The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 24:35-48.   The disciples of Jesus recounted what had taken place along the way, and how Jesus was made known to them in the breaking of bread.  While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost.  Then he said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts?  Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have.”

And as he said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.  While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, he asked them, “Have you anything here to eat?”  They gave him a piece of baked fish; he took it and ate it in front of them.  He said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law of Moses and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.”

Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures.  And he said to them, “Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things.”

    Charles–thanks–most of my life I was a doubting Thomas– I finally realized so many
    things in the Bible were true and accurate and the ancients could not have possibly known is what
    solidified my belief–one example from the Bible is when it is pointed out there are as many stars in the heavens as sands on the world’s beaches—science has only discovered that within the past ten years—Only God could have informed ancient people of such things—and there are just too many such example for a rational person to deny–bill

      Oh… Bill. How right your are. If ONLY people would use some ‘rational thinking’…. they could come up with the same conclusion. But Alas …they are living in a ‘worldly dream,’ filled with the likes of satan. I can remember ‘many times,’ as a younger adult… reading some passages in the bible, and thinking… WOW… if only I had seen this, or read that…BEFORE…maybe, just maybe… I wouldn’t have done… this, or that. I don’t know, for sure, but what I do know…is TODAY… I’ve gotten my head ‘half-way’ screwed on right; and I’m conscious… all the time, with ‘trying to do the RIGHT thing’ for the right reason, to the right people… which should be: For the HONOR and GLORY…of the Lord God, Jesus, The Christ, the Son of The Father. Thanks be to God, and thank God…for YOU, Bill. Many Blessings….cjlb…4/7/2018
