TXT: How Did We Get the Bible?

On Sunday at CrossWay Church we began a new series called TXT.  This week’s message: How Did We Get the Bible?

We broke this question down into three more questions:

(1) Where did the Bible come from?

The answer to this question is simple: God.  The Bible came to us from God.  It originated with Him.

(2) Who put all these ancient documents together into one volume?

Again, to summarize: the church put it together under God’s divine guidance.  For both the Old Testament and the New Testament, there were very strict standards (the literal meaning of “canon”) for writing to be included.

(3) How did we get the Bible in English?

It took centuries and several people died to make it happen.  An English translation of the Bible has been legal for less than 500 years.

The podcast is already up, so you can check out the full story there.
