How Aunthentic The Bible Is?

A page from the earliest surviving Bible, of which another fragment has been discovered in Egypt

Christians are the most intelligent inhabitant of this world spiritually speaking. Why and How?

Lets take a look and study the only basis and foundation of Christians belief and doctrines " The Bible" How authentic it is? Personally I didn't know much about the ways and details of how this book are been written. I have read and finish the whole books of the new testament, I was not a Christian then, I'm a member of Roman Catholic Church. I remember attending mass to different churches in different places back in my country and go back home with a sampaguita flowers for my Sto. Nino ( A graven image of child Jesus ).

That was a summer vacation then, and I have no place to go and practically doing nothing at home when I started reading the Bible's new testament. Since then I got interested in reading it just like a romantic novel of love, where some can't wait to read and finish it chapter by chapter and while on the course of reading it I haven't notice the tears flowing from my eyes I can't exactly explain why but since then I've stop attending to any catholic mass again ever.But many notwithstanding the facts and authenticity of it remains doubtful about the scripture

The Bible: A brief history

Although earlier fragments of the Bible have survived the passage of time, the Codex Sinaiticus is so significant because it is by far the most complete. The full text that has been discovered so far contains virtually all of the New Testament and about half of the Old Testament.

But whenever an ancient version of the holy book is found, it often raises questions about the evolution of the Bible and how close what we read today is to the original words of Christ and his early followers.

The Old Testament was written largely in Hebrew (with the odd Aramaic exception) but it is by no means a homogenous entity. Protestant and more recent Catholic versions of the Bible tend to use the Masoretic Text, a variation of the Hebrew Old Testament that was copied, edited and distributed by Jewish Masorete scholars between the 7th and 11th centuries. Earlier Catholic translations and the Greek and Russian Orthodox churches use the Septuagint, an ancient Greek version of the Hebrew text that was translated between the 3rd and 1st centuries BC.

In studying the early history of the New Testament, historians have about 5,650 handwritten copies in Greek on which they can draw, many of which are distinctly different. As Christianity consolidated its power through the first millennia, the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John came to form the key elements of the New Testament.

You want to know who holds the power of God and the wisdom of God in the bible. and the wisdom you need to acquire to live in harmony with this world. It's just a question away
