Question 10: Who is the Author of the Bible?
Answer: God the Holy Spirit is the Author of the Bible.
Prove it.
II Timothy 3:16

Question 11: How did the Holy Spirit write the Bible?
Answer: He wrote the Bible by using people.
Prove it.
II Peter 1:21

Question 12: Can the Bible ever be wrong?
Answer: No, the Bible is the Word of God, and God cannot lie.
Prove it.

God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Numbers 23:19

There are some difficulties in the Bible, and even some paradoxes, but it is important to remember that none of these are unresolved. There may be fault in our understanding of the Word, but there are no true contradictions or inconsistencies.

It is also important to remember that the Bible is written somewhat conversationally in some places, and it is polemical in places, so it does have metaphors and figurative language and even estimates, but it is to be taken literally, and it does contain the absolute Truth.

Other verses to consider:

As also in all [his] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

II Peter 3:16

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

I Corinthians 14:37
