The Bible

'I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air. A few moments hence, I am no more seen - I drop into eternity. I want to know one thing. The way to heaven. God has given us a way, written in the Good Book, the Bible. O give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God!' (John Wesley)

Explaining the Bible:

The Bible is God's message to humanity. He has spoken to all peoples and all generations. Of course, God first did this by addressing His people, the Israelites in the Old Testament and the young Church in the New Testament, in a language they could understand.

The original text of the Bible was written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek - languages of the people. Since God intends to speak to all people of all ages through His Word, each generation and language group must have the Bible translated into its own language.

The Bible is God's message and it is ultimately addressed to all people in every generation and of every age.

Hebrews 1: 1,2
