1 Introduction Bible: from Greek biblia = books or scrolls - The Holy Bible. Scripture: from Latin scriptura = writing - The Holy Scripture. Word: translation of the Greek logos - The Word of God... Christ the Word of God and the Wisdom of God. Written by about 40 people with different culture, education, profession, language, locations, etc. over 1600 years, yet it has a unifying theme: CHRIST. Language: most of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew; a few chapters in Aramaic. The New Testament was written in Greek (a few Aramaic words). Characterized by: variety and unity, historical and contemporary, simple and profound, human and divine. Importance: a light to our path (Ps. 119:105), a sweet taste (Ps. 119:103), a weapon in the fight against evil (Eph. 6:17),... The Inspiration of the Bible 1. God gave and guaranteed all that the Bible writers had to say on all of the subjects they discussed. 2. He determined for them by inward prompting (plus providential conditioning and control) the manner in which they should express His truth. He did not dictate the manuscript to them but He revealed His truth (visions, spoke directly, etc.) to them and showed them how they should present it. He led them to express His Word in terms of their own outlook, interests, literary habits, peculiarities of style. The Inspiration of the Old Testament one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled (Matt. 5:18) no prophecy of the scripture of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but by the Holy Ghost. (2 Pet. 1:20-21) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Tim. 3:16) The prophets introduce their thus saith the Lord, the word of the Lord that came unto me, or something similar. - 3,808 times in O.T. Textual Transmission - the scribes (later, Masoretes; Masorah = tradition) and the customs of copying the Scriptures; counting the the words and the letters. Hebrew text (Masoretic) - Aramaic paraphrases (Targums) - Greek version (Septuagint, 280 BC) - Syriac 100 AD. The Inspiration of the New Testament God moved writers of N.T. to record His Word faithfully as He did with writers of O.T. They were conscious of what the Holy Spirit was doing through them. perfect understanding of all things from the very first (Luke 1:3) - eyewitness of events (John 21:24) St. Paul knew that he was expressing what the Holy Spirit directed him to write (1Cor. 2:13; 4:14; 5:9; 14:37; 2Cor. 9:1; 2 Pet. 3:15) N.T. text has been copied constantly from the start. Manuscripts: 5,000 in Greek and 15,000 in other languages - 2nd to 4th century. Ancient translations: Latin (the Vulgate), Jerome 400 AD. Syriac, Bishop Rabbula of Edessa 400 AD. Coptic, 300 AD.

5 The Bible is not such a book a man would write if he could, or could write if he would. The Bible is unique because... It was written over a period of 1,500 years, on 3 continents, in 3 languages by more than 40 authors from every walk of life yet with an awesome unity and continuity. It has been, and continues to be, translated, printed and distributed at unparalleled rates. It contains fulfilled prophecies, verified history and amazing personalities. It survived time, persecution and criticism. But above all, It is unique because it is the Word of God that changed and continues to change lives. So make it your daily bread and let it work miracles in your life.

The texts are of great religious and historical significance, as they include some of the only known surviving copies of Biblical documents made before 100 BC and preserve evidence of late Second Temple Judaism. They are written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, mostly on parchment, but with some written on papyrus. These manuscripts generally date between 150 BC to 70 AD. The scrolls are most commonly identified with the ancient Jewish sect called the Essenes. The Dead Sea Scrolls are traditionally divided into three groups: "Biblical" manuscripts (copies of texts from the Hebrew Bible), which comprise roughly 40% of the identified scrolls; "Apocryphal" or "Pseudepigraphical" manuscripts (known documents from the Second Temple Period like Enoch, Jubilees, Tobit, Sirach, non-canonical psalms, etc., that were not ultimately canonized in the Hebrew Bible), which comprise roughly 30% of the identified scrolls; and "Sectarian" manuscripts (previously unknown documents that speak to the rules and beliefs of a particular group or groups within greater Judaism) like the Community Rule, War Scroll, Pesher (Hebrew pesher פשר = "Commentary") on Habakkuk, and the Rule of the Blessing, which comprise roughly 30% of the identified scrolls.
