1. what is the Bible?

Introduction

 

The Bible is the book that God wrote through his servants. It is a book that is wholly inspired by God, which He left for us so that we may know what His purposes are for our lives. Through the Bible we are able to know His will, which is the open door to indicate the road to salvation for our souls. 

 

The Bible is a perfect book that gets us closer to knowing the character of God. It is the only book in the world that faithfully transmits the Word of God.
