How do we know the Bible is true?

The Bible is a library of 66 separate books written by about 40 different writers of various backgrounds over a time span of at least 2000 years. Real people separated by generations of time, distance, and social class; simply do not write in agreement like this. Other evidences, such as the fulfillment of hundreds of historical prophecies, archaeological discoveries, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the unique qualities of the Bible itself give witness to its truthfulness. The Bible claims divine inspiration in both the Old Testament (2 Samuel 23:2) and in the New Testament (2 Timothy 3:16,17).

The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.   2 Sam 23:2   (KJV)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.   2 Tim 3:16-17   (KJV)

In fact, there are over 3,000 statements of divine inspiration. Clearly, the Bible must be trustworthy! In fact, no other book in history, while having been the object of such hatred and rejection, has maintained its unique preservation. No other book in history has stood the test of time convicting men in every generation and across all social classes, of sin and the need for a Savior.
