Is God’s Word Real and Reliable?
God promises his word will endure.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. Mathew 24:35
As historical fact the earliest known writing has been found around 3400 B.C. near the Persian Gulf. The discovery of the Sumerian script written on local materials: clay for tablets and reeds for styluses (writing tools). The bible was not just an oral historical book but a written history of the planet and the history of it’s people. These documents have been preserved over thousands of years and match modern bibles that we use today. There is a consistency in the message that alleviates us of any false books.
Thousands of theologians and scholars have studied the texts over thousands of years. Many publications, schools and lives stand as testimony of truth.
