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

All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

II Timothy 3:16

The Bible self-attests to its own truthfulness and reliability, which is not surprising, considering it is the Word of God. However, there are other ways to demonstrate its veracity, including its internal consistency, its fulfilled prophecies, its life-transforming power, its extant manuscripts, and, most importantly, the fact that the Lord Jesus Himself – God incarnate – taught that it is the Word of God.

To have God’s Word in our hands makes it imperative that we have it also saturating our minds, and hidden in our hearts. It is likewise imperative that we live according to its principles, precepts, and explicit commands.

To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Isaiah 8:20

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17
