Is the Bible True? Randall Niles discusses the evidence for Biblical inspiration, trustworthiness, and authenticity. (This is a 2007 low res classic - For higher quality, please visit "History of the Bible" on this same YouTube channel.)

The Bible is a phenomenal account of history, comprised of 66 separate books, written over approximately 1,600 years, by at least 40 distinct authors. The Old Testament contains 39 books written from approximately 1500 to 400 BC, and the New Testament contains 27 books written from approximately 40 to 90 AD. The texts were penned in different languages, locations and cultures. The authors covered the spectrum of life -- from kings to fishermen, scribes to shepherds. Unlike other books of religion, philosophy or mythology, the biblical accounts were written by totally different people in totally different contexts.

Remarkably, when the Bible is read as a whole, it is a perfectly integrated message system! From Genesis to Revelation, there is a systematic structure that boggles the mind. Even with todays computers, scholars have a hard time understanding how the various models, types, codes, themes, symbols and predictions all came together without material error or inconsistency.

Some scriptures may appear obscure in their original context. However, when read in the light of texts written hundreds of years later, the message becomes dramatically clear. For instance, in Genesis 3:15, God is speaking to Satan when He says, I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." This language is hard to understand until we see the scripture fulfilled in the New Testament. There, the writers view Satan as striking at Christs heel through the crucifixion, until Christ crushes Satans head (sin) through the power of the resurrection. There are numerous models, types and symbols used throughout the Old Testament scriptures that are fully explained in the New Testament texts. Often, Jesus Christ himself acts as the full explanation that ties the Old and New Testament concepts together.

Dig in and explore the integrated design of the biblical texts for yourself! Is it possible that 40 authors writing separately over hundreds of years could have planned the amazing integration that we now see in the completed collection of 66 books?
