The Living Bible

What does the Bible claim about itself?

Open Bible being held up to the sky

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


(2) ". . . no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of Yahuwah spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."  (2 Peter 1:20-21)


(3) "For the word of Yahuwah is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12)


(4) ". . . the Scripture cannot be broken." (John 10:35)

What evidence does the Bible offer to support these extraordinary claims?


Here are just a few examples of the Bible’s scientific claims that predate modern science.  Many more could be cited.

Internal Consistency

The 66 books of the Bible were written:

Incredibly, all 66 books of the Bible maintain a wonderful harmony with each other!  The Bible's internal consistency is a remarkable testimony to its divine origin.


"Remember the former things of old, For I am El, and there is no other; I am Elohim, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done . . ." (Isaiah 46:9-10)

Bible with Hebrew TextYahuwah, in order to demonstrate the authenticity of the Bible as His inspired word, has given us hundreds (literally) of divine forecasts.  Roughly 30% of the Bible is prophecy.  That is to say that about 1 out of every 3 verses in the Bible is prophetic!  To date, about 85% of the Bible’s forecasts have come to pass exactly as predicted!  Why should we expect the still future forecasts to be any different?

Here are just a few of the prophecies that have, in every detail, been fulfilled to date:

The book of Daniel, alone, has accurately forecasted more than 2,500 years of what is now history!

Now, let us look to Yahushua of Nazareth...

Yahushua fulfilled more than 350 messianic prophecies in every detail, including the exact times, places, and circumstances of His birth, His ministry, His rejection, His betrayal, and His vicarious death.  61 of these prophecies are considered by scholars to be “major prophecies,” which is to say that the specificity of the foretold events allows historians to objectively investigate the validity of the prophecies' alleged fulfillment.  Every prophecy, without exception, was irrefutably fulfilled in Yahushua. 

Here are just a few of the prophecies that were, in every detail, fulfilled in Yahushua:
Crucifixion Nails, Crown of Thorns, & Hebrew Bible

Hundreds of years before crucifixion was even introduced by Rome as a
form of execution, Scripture recorded that Yahushua would be pierced
through His hands and feet.  (See Psalms 22:16-17 & Zechariah 12:10.)

*Suggested Reading: Psalm 22 & Isaiah 53Amazing!  Bear in mind when reading these passages that Psalm 22 was written around 1000 BC; The book of Isaiah was written around 700 BC.

According to mathematicians…

The odds of one man fulfilling 8 of these prophecies.......................1 in 1017
1 in 10:17 = 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000


The odds of one man fulfilling 16 of these prophecies.....................1 in 1045
1 in 10:45 = 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

The odds of one man fulfilling 48 of these prophecies.....................1 in 10157
1 in 10:157 = 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,

“And now I have told you before it comes,
that when it does come to pass, you may believe.” 
(John 14:29)

What external evidence is there to support the claims of the Bible?  

Experiential Consistency

The unique content of the Bible has, for more than 2,000 years, enriched the lives of millions of people: men and women, young and old, rich and poor, free and slave, from all backgrounds, and from every ethnic group in the world.  Addictions have been conquered.  Broken hearts have been healed.  Fear, confusion, anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, sickness, and all manner of darkness have been overcome by the ever-living light of Bible Truth. 


Isaiah Scroll (Dead Sea Scrolls)The ancient Scriptures of the Bible have been remarkably preserved and accurately translated for thousands of years despite the innumerable attempts to obscure their contents and the countless efforts made throughout recorded history to destroy them altogether.  Today, nearly 25,000 ancient Bible manuscripts of the New Testament still exist.  There is no other book of antiquity in existence that can be supported by even 1,000 partial manuscripts!

The discovery of the “Dead Sea Scrolls” in 1947 attests to the remarkable preservation of the Old Testament, as well as to the astounding accuracy of its modern translation.

Life Testimonies

Countless millions of people willingly laid down their lives during the Roman papal “Inquisitions.”  They were burned at the stake, beaten, stoned, beheaded, hanged, torn apart by wild animals, and relentlessly tortured using the most unfathomably cruel methods ever witnessed by humanity.  This period is often referred to as the “Dark Ages” because the Light of the Bible was intentionally hidden and obscured by the Roman Church-State.  It was “heresy” to read the Bible or to even be found with a Bible in your possession.  It was for the Love of the Truth contained between the covers of the Bible that these countless men and women willingly laid down their lives. 

They knew the TRUTH…that the Bible is not a book of condemnation and imagination; it is the Book of Hope, Promise, Enlightenment, and Liberty, the Living words of a Loving Creator, the revelation of unconditional Love and Mercy resting on the only pillar of Truth - Yahushua, Son of the Living Eloah!
