Why Trust the Bible Pamphletanswers 6 questions brought up by recent books and TV shows about the reliability of the Bible, including “Was the Bible changed?” Or “Was the Bible edited?” Or “Are there thousands of Bible errors?”
The Bible can be trusted.
People who have been influenced by skeptics such as Dan Brown and his bestseller, The DaVinci Code, or Dr. Bart Ehrman’s book Misquoting Jesus, will find convincing answers in this booklet Why Trust the Bible. The Bible text has not been “changed with reckless abandon.” And the Bible is not full of errors as some claim.
The bestselling Why Trust the Bible reassures Christians about the reliability of the Bible. Dr. Timothy Paul Jones examines six claims, and shows what logic and history actually tell us.
Why Trust the BibleGives a Critique of Bart Ehrman’sMisquoting Jesus
Claim: The Gospels were written long after Jesus lived and were written by people who weren’t eyewitnesses.
Claim: The stories about Jesus’ life and death were not handed down reliably and not recorded accurately.
Claim: The Bible is full of textual errors, as proven by the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Claim: The New Testament wasn’t finalized until hundreds of years after Jesus and his disciples, so there could have been many other “gospels” accepted and later rejected, in addition to the four Gospels found in the Bible today.
Claim: The originals of the Bible are lost; therefore, we have no way of knowing what it actually said.
Claim: The Bible was edited by scribes or powerful people who had an “agenda” and changed many teachings.
Jones shows that the biblical story and text were passed down with amazing reliability. And the Bible was hand copied for centuries with remarkable accuracy.
