Who actually wrote the Bible?

Is Bible Man's Word or God's Word? Why should we read it? Can the Bible really tell us the future for mankind? Or is it just the best thinking of Men of the age when it was written? More importantly: can Bible contain errors? And if it does, then what?

You may be SURPRISED that Jehovah's Witnesses use many translations, here is a short list often quote in our literature pertaining to an array of subjects. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/

But why use different translations? Because a variety often broadens the meaning of scriptures. Case and point: Let's take a look at one scripture (Romans 11:13)

For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles (KJV)
But to you foreigners I say, Then so far as I am an apostle to foreigners (BLV)
Now, I speak to you who are not Jewish. As long as I am an apostle sent to people who are not Jewish (GT)
For to you I speak -- to the nations -- inasmuch as I am indeed an apostle of nations (YLT)
Now I speak to you who are people of the nations. Seeing that I am an apostle to the nations (NWT)

Since Paul preach to Jew and the Gentiles, an apostle to the nations id the most accurate use of his apostleship.

The true author of the bible, and everything else is the Most High God (EL), but as far as people being used to in the sense to "mediate" it to physical form (IE through text) was written down by multiple people probably at least 2000 thousands of years or more I would speculate, and probably re-written/translated thousands of times. Anything that an imperfect/incorruptible person gets there hands on no matter how strongly they live in the good of there creator is still subject to corruption no matter who they are, and so yes the bible can contain errors if being managed by people, but still not impossible for someone to apply correctly. Besides the written word in actuality (it's importance aside) is but a mere reflection of his true word which is the essence of wisdom from Yah's spirit. If you really begin to awaken your mind in the light of Mashiah (messiah) then you begin to notice the complexity of how at least at minimum the christian cannon has within it including Torah.

Cont... The Psalms are much more complex than a lot of people may realize as well in the way that they were written. It's like looking into a battle strategy from beginning to end, but of a spiritual nature. The orders of them, and even more specifically the words used, and the order of the words used.

EL is a short version of Elohim, it's talking about a representative of God. The Word is a Mighty God. "I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you on the way and to bring you into the place that I have prepared.  Pay attention to him, and obey his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgressions, because my name is in him." (Exodus 23:20-21)

Paul calls this angel CHRIST "that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." 1 Cor 10:4

When the HOLY BIBLE was originally printed, the HEBREW AND CHRISTIAN readers took it for granted that the many AUTHORS WHO COMPILED THE MASSIVE BOOK were guided and inspired by the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. Unfortunately, this did not occur. Hence the many contradictions and inaccuracies.
The famous English theologian, and author, FRANCESCA STAVRAKOPOULOU, recently gave a lecture in Australia, claiming that Moses never existed, and that the EPIC EXODUS NEVER TOOK PLACE.
To get a copy of her lecture, please go to GOOGLE and type her name, and surname.
Kind regards,
John Romer

Did God die for our sins? Did God offered up supplications? Did God have godly fear? You're the one telling me that Jesus is God berrington. If Jesus is God as you say, shouldn't the scripture read this way?

And when God became twelve years old, they went up according to the custom of the festival and completed the days. But when they were returning, God remained behind in Jerusalem, and God'sparents did not notice it. Assuming that God was in the company traveling together, they covered a day’s distance and then began to hunt God up among the relatives and acquaintances. But, not finding God, they returned to Jerusalem, making a diligent search for God. Well, after three days they found God in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers and listening to them and questioning them. But all those listening to God were in constant amazement at his understanding and his answers." (Luke 2:42-47) :-)
