The size of Noah’s Ark

Children’s books and toys of Noah’s Ark often lead to another objection about the truthfulness of the Flood—how did all the animals fit in there? Genesis 6:15-16 gives us the dimension; it was 450 feet long by 75 feet wide by 45 feet high. So imagine a four story building that is one and one-half [&hellip

The source of the Flood’s water

As mentioned in the previous blog, the Bible’s account of Noah’s Flood is the most detailed and longest account of all the recorded histories that we have. It makes sense since God revealed it to Moses as he wrote Genesis. However, through the years, many objections have been raised against the veracity of the worldwide [&hellip

Flood stories from around the world

When someone reads the beginning of the Bible, the first events are Creation in Genesis chapters 1-2, the Fall into Sin in chapter 3, the first murder in chapter 4, and the genealogy of the descendants of Adam to Noah in chapter 5. Following these chapters is the Flood account in chapters 6-9. The world [&hellip

7 questioned books in the New Testament

From approximately 100-350 AD there was division over seven books in our New Testament. No one questioned the apostolicity of the four Gospels, the book of Acts, the thirteen letters of Paul, 1 Peter, and 1 John. After all, these were written by apostles, or with “apostolic approval.” For instance, Mark is considered to be [&hellip

The origin of the New Testament books

Since Jesus and the Early Church already had the Old Testament Scriptures, how did the Bible grow to have the New Testament? If you recall, Jesus had twelve Apostles that He taught very deliberately and intensively; they were given the charge in Matthew 28:19-20 to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in [&hellip

Jesus’ view of the Old Testament

As we saw previously, historical documents support the fact that the Old Testament was already in existence and canonized as the Word of God. However, some people still won’t accept those books as inspired Scripture.  Maybe they don’t like the content of some of the chapters. Or maybe they don’t like the concept of a [&hellip

The 66 books of the Bible

Having established the reliability of the Bible by referring to the oldest existing copies to verify what we have in our hands today, let us continue to examine another question: why are these sixty-six books special? In other words, what is the canon? The canon is defined as the accepted list of books with authority. [&hellip

The Bible’s Inerrancy (Part 2)

In the previous blogs we saw how the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and has been reliably copied for centuries.  The Bible is also inerrant, or without contradiction.  Read it cover to cover and you will see for yourself. People have been trying to find contradictions for over 2000 years and haven’t been successful. The only thing [&hellip

The Bible’s Inerrancy (Part 1)

In the past two blogs we’ve established that the Bible is an extremely reliable document, without parallel in ancient literature, passing all bibliographical tests. But some will still say that the Bible should be disregarded since it is full of contradictions. To answer that charge, Christians need to know that the Bible is without contradiction [&hellip

Is the New Testament reliable?

What about the reliability of the New Testament?  The degree of accuracy of the New Testament exceeds 99%, which is greater than that of any other book from the ancient world.  And what is astounding is the strength of the argument when comparing it to other ancient writings. When measured against such works as Homer’s The [&hellip
