18. Questions Part 3: How Do We Know We Can Trust the Bible?
Show Notes

More and more today, the Bible is coming under attack more than I have ever seen or heard before. 

How do we know that we can trust the Bible? Besides knowing that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time and has changed more lives than any other book, and that so many people bank their lives on the Bible and will even die for it, let’s talk about how we know that we can trust the Bible.

 First of all, the Bible isn’t just a book of principles…things that we should do and not do, but it is actually true…including the story of Noah and the ark and Samson and his strength. 

 Today’s episode is going to be more apologetic in nature. 1 Peter 3:15 says, “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you.” That word defense is the Greek word for apologetics and that basically just means a thoughtful defense of the Word of God.

If we understand why we believe what we believe, it’s easier for us to share the Gospel with those who are around us. 

 So, over the next couple of episodes we’re going to talk about how we can know that we can really trust the Bible. 

The first way we can know that we can trust the Bible is because it is historically accurate.

3 ways that historians test to see if a manuscript is historically accurate:

1. Were there any eyewitnesses to what happened?

2. Was it was recorded and copied with extreme care. 

3. Is the manuscript confirmed by archeology?

Not only is the Bible historically accurate, but it is also scientifically accurate. To find out more about how, listen in to today's podcast.
