Throughout history people have wondered, "What if the Bible was tampered with?" The bestselling Why Trust the Bible Pamphlet reassures Christians that the BibleCAN be trusted. The stories and text were passed down with amazing reliability. And the Bible was hand copied for centuries with amazing accuracy. Full color and glossy, this 12-panel pamphlet is an excellent teaching tool for new believers and for those who have questions about the Bible's origin. Author Timothy Paul Jones is a professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.
Size: 8.5"x 5.5" unfolds to 33" long. Fits inside most Bible covers.
Popular books and movies promote doubts about the authenticity and accuracy of the Bible. Some suggest that the Bible is an ancient document that has been edited so many times that it is now filled with errors. Why Trust the Bible Pamphlet equips believers to defend assaults against the Bible and to defend the faith. In five important questions, the author addresses what the skeptics claim and what history actually tells us. A time line reveals the development of key writings, the emergence of the biblical canon, and more. This great reference tool proves that the Bible can be trusted!
Author Timothy Paul Jones, Ed.D., states without a doubt, "The Bible can be trusted." In clear, concise language, Dr. Jones reveals the errors in the critics' logic and facts, and does it in an easy-to-understand style using helpful charts, time lines, and explanations.
This pamphlet gives clear responses to the following claims:
  • False Claim: The Gospels were written long after Jesus lived and were written by people who weren't eyewitnesses.
  • False Claim: The stories about Jesus' life and death were not handed down reliably and not recorded accurately.
  • False Claim: The Bible is full of textual errors, as proven by the Dead Sea Scrolls.
  • False Claim: The New Testament wasn't finalized until hundreds of years after Jesus and his disciples, so there could have been many other "gospels" accepted and later rejected, in addition to the four Gospels found in the Bible today.
  • False Claim: The originals of the Bible are lost; therefore, we have no way of knowing what it actually said.
  • False Claim: The Bible was edited by people who had an "agenda" and changed many teachings.
Among the many sound reasons why we can trust the Bible are exciting facts such as:
  • Each of the four Gospels represents eyewitness testimony about Jesus Christ. For example, Mark's Gospel is Peter's testimony and Luke's Gospel is Paul's eyewitness accounts recorded by his physician, Luke.
  • Documents such as the Dead Seas Scrolls and Masoretic texts reveal that biblical texts agree nearly 99 percent of the time.
  • The 27 books of the New Testament that we have today were mentioned in a pastor's letter in AD 367, and were recognized before that date.
  • A time line shows the years of Jesus' ministry shown side-by-side with key writings reflecting witness testimonies.
