Q: Can you give further evidence the Bible is “one of a kind”?
A: The Holy Bible is distinguished from all other books because it came from God. A cursory reading easily demonstrates the Bible claims to be God's Word. This writing acknowledges it is from God. Consider these examples: “The word of the LORD that came unto Hosea” (Hosea 1:1); “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (Proverbs 30:5-6); “And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.” (Exodus 31:18); “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” (Habakkuk 2:2); “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:18); “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19) One cannot escape terms such as “the word of the LORD” “word of God” “written with the finger of God” and “write the vision (which is from God)”. The reader is left to honestly admit this book, the Holy Bible, declares itself to be from God. Such an extraordinary book deserves, invites, even compels, our further investigation.
