Transcript of The Bible

BIBLE The best gift God has ever given to man Book of Books The word ‘Bible’ originates from Greek, biblos, meaning ‘the book’.

Bible is ‘the’ unique Book of all the books in the world. QUOTES

The sixteenth President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln, once said that “the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.”

U.S. General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) said, ‘Sir, Please believe me that I must read the Bible before I go to bed even in the most exhausted time. There is no exception.’ THE BIBLE IS NOT... Bible is not only a book of literature. Psalms 23 (read a verse)
It is not only a book of history. There are also stories in the Bible about Noah's ark, King Solomon, Jericho... Bible is not only a book of science.
Genesis (How to Earth was made)
It is not only a book about moral ethics.
-10 commandments. Bible is not only a Doomsday Book/Doomsday Book
It is very easy for people to think of the Bible as a doomsday book when they read Revelations. The last book of the Bible. No wonder this is called the ‘Book of books’.
French Writer Victor Hugo once said, ‘In England, there are two books, Bible and Shakespeare. England created Shakespeare, but Bible created England.’ The translation of Bible

Here we would like to recommend the Recovery Version of Bible, the most accurate in translation and with outlines and footnotes. The Bible reveals the origin of... THE UNIVERSE
Bible has mentioned about a Mighty, Eternal Creator who made the universe including heaven, earth and all creation out of nothing.

Even before men discovered the earth was round, the Bible says the earth was a big circle (Isaiah 40:22 2700 years ago) and hangs upon nothing (Job 26:7, 4000 years ago).

~ Although the recordings in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, are not a scientific document, it is fully matched with the scientific evidences (findings). MAN
-According to the modern genetic science and physiological studies, man is a very wonderful and complicated creation. Hence, there must be an omnipotent one behind the scene.
-(Therefore) Every sensible being must be from a higher creator who created it. There can't be something from nothing.
-Bible briefly and clearly mentions the origin of man: Man was created by God according to His image. (Gen.1:26-27) Revelation of a real God Before Christ era, most cultures were polytheistic on the earth.

Majority of western gods were described as cruel, bloody, fearsome and even lustful.

Chinese gods were men eventually worshipped as gods after their death.

Bible has revealed there is a unique real God who is infinite. He would take care of men like Father and husband. He is the real manifestation of love, honour, justice and compassion.

This is strongly opposite to the ancient gods. Men worship those gods out of their fear not because of the respect nor of love. The prophesy of the future of mankind Out of all the prophecies, 96.2% of them have been fully fulfilled. The rest of 3.8% is being fulfilled.
There are many categories of prophecies and they are wide-ranged: to the Jewish people, to 20 more nations including Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Syria, Greece and Romans etc.

But the most important one is the prophecy to Jesus Christ.
