Why I Believe the Bible #11 (The Honesty of the Bible About Its Authors and Heroes)

BIble
The Bible is a brutally honest book.  One of the things that it is most honest and forthright about is the character flaws of its authors and main characters.  The Bible focuses on reality and how God works through the weaknesses of those he created to accomplish his plan.  It does not concentrate on fantasy.

If the Bible were strictly a human endeavor, one would have expected its authors to exclude their own flaws from the story and the flaws of their patriarchs.  Far from excluding such information the Bible is replete with the sins of its writers.  It reveals both the good and the evil, the best and the worst, the hope and despair and the joy and pain of its authors.

The exhaustive look at the examples of this honest treatment of its characters would be way to long for this article, but let’s look a number of examples.

Why I Believe the Bible #10 (Eyewitness Evidence)

At the time it was written, the Bible was widely circulated and viewed by eyewitnesses to the events it records.  As regards the New Testament, fragments of 5 books have been found from within 35 years of Jesus’ death.  These eyewitnesses would have been in a position to refute what the authors had written and the lack of any such refutation provides further evidence for the reliability of the Bible.

In his letter to the church in Corinth, Paul explains that Jesus appeared to 500 and disciples and makes a point that many of them are still alive.

Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.  [1 Corinthians 15:6-8 ESV]
