Evidence Of Inspiration The Unity Of The Bible – Evidence That It Is From God Despite these diversities, the Bible is a book of incredible harmony Many scholars have pointed to the unity of the theme of the Bible. Genesis, the first book, describes man’s sin and it’s consequences of being barred access to the tree of life. Revelation, the last book, foretells of the righteous being granted access to the tree of life. Between the first and last book, the beautiful scheme of redemption unfolds before the eyes of the reader. This incredible unity of the Bible is strong evidence that it is the product of the Almighty God. Slide 20: The Bible Is Inspired By God.

In fact, the Bible sheds light on the fallacies of superstition and prejudice. The Bible reveals the answer to the most important question ever to be considered; yet, does so with remarkable brevity. The entire Bible is shorter than many novels. Mark’s gospel is shorter than many short stories; yet it reveals the greatest story every told. Slide 21: The Bible Is Inspired By God.

Even the record of the arrest of Jesus, his mock trial and crucifixion are recorded without bias, leaving the reader to consider the facts and supply his own emotion. There are no cover-ups in the Bible. The sins of people, even Bible heroes, are recorded in full detail for all to know. This unity and simplicity of style is further evidence of the Bible’s inspiration. Slide 22: Over these many centuries, events are written down in Hebrew (with portions in Aramaic). Moses and other writers, inspired by God, include leaders, kings and prophets.
