Authority of the Bible - by J-me (Part V)
11/4/2008 7:52:33 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

Are there any proofs outside the scriptures that reveal the authority of the Bible?
A friend of mine asked me the other day, "Is there any proof that the Bible is authentic outside of the scriptures themselves?"

I had to reply, "Of course, how many proofs do you want?"

"Give me ten," he said.

"Okay," I said. Following are the ten proofs that I presented:

1) Ecclesiastes 3:14 states, "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him."

The First Law of Thermodynamics supports the fact that nothing can be added to or taken from creation. It states, "that energy can be gained or lost in chemical processes -- shifted from one to another -- but it can't be created or destroyed. Income and expendature of energy have to balance." (Exploring the Way Life Works, Hoagland, Dodson, Hauck, p92, 2001)

2) Isaiah 51:6 states, "Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished."

The Second Law of Thermodynamics supports the fact that heaven and earth shall wear out. It states, "energy inevitably disperses, dissipates, scatters -- that is, it is transformed from more usable forms such as photons and bonds to a less usable form, namely heat. The tendency of energy to disperse, and of ordered structures to become disordered, is called entropy, and physicists say that the entropy of the universe is increasing." (Exploring the Way Life Works, Hoagland, Dodson, Hauck, p92, 2001)

3) The Bible indicates the use of atomic materials in creation.

Hebrews 11:3 "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

4) The Bible reveals the jet stream centuries before its scientific discovery.

Ecclesiastes 1:6 "The wind goeth toward the south and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits."

5) The prophecy of Jesus made 2,000 years ago has literally has been fulfilled.

Mark 13:10 "And the gospel must first be published among all nations."

6) Archaeological evidence at digs at Ur, Fara, and Kish reveal a layer of clean water laid clay between remains of ancient civilizations that are clear evidence of a Biblical Flood. This layer of clay proves that was a cataclysmic flood of long duration that completely separates pre-flood civilization and post-flood civilization.

7) "Calvary" is Latin, and "Golgotha" is Hebrew for skull. According to scripture this is where Jesus Christ was crucified. This place still exists today outside of Jerusalem.

8) In 1881, General Christian Gordon found a garden at the base of Skull Hill where Jesus was crucified. He set his men to digging and under 5 feet of rubble he found what is now called the Garden Tomb. This tomb is empty and fits the exact description in every aspect, of the tomb where Jesus was laid and rose again from the grave! A nearby vault bears the inscription, "Buried Near My Lord."

(items 6 - 8 are taken from Halley's Bible Handbook, Zondervan Publishing House)

Living proof of the Bibles authority are revealed in items 9 and 10.

9) The Jewish people themselves are living proof of the Bibles authenticity. On the one hand are the volumes af archaeological evidence that prove the accuracy of the Jewish people's history as given by the scriptures.

On the other hand, the realization of prophesy of the return of the Jewish people to Israel, made over 2,000 years ago.

Isaiah 43:5-7, "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth. Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him."

10) Christians are also living proof of the authenticity of the Bible.

Isaiah 42:5-6, "Thus saith God the lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth and that cometh out of it; he that giveth breath, unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people for a light of the Gentiles."

Isaiah 49-6, "And he said it is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel; I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth."

Although this is a short list of outside proof of the Bible's authenticity, there is literally an endless supply of proof.

God has given plenty of proof of his truthfulness through the scriptures.

Best Regards
