Hello Rainhard Rösler!
The Bible – The Word of God or Man?
How did the God of the Bible ensure the credibility of its divine origin?
the Bible writers testified that they had written under inspiration or that they hadtestifyin (2.Sam.23/2; 2.Tim.3/16; John 17/17; 2.Petr.1/21)
That would not be proof in itself, of course, but it is part of the whole structure of evidence; Jesus never relied on Jewish traditions other than the part of the Hebrew scriptures known as the Old Testament in his argument.
The Bible writers were distinguished by honesty
They did not try to glorify anything (as has often been noted by other historians).They reported defeats as honestly as they did victories. They also honestly reported serious misconduct by individual servants of God; through the constant rebellions of the people against the moral customs of God to the assassination of Jesus Christ.
Tradition of The Scriptures
As for the tradition by transcriptions, the copywriters were motivated in that they wrote off in the conviction that they were copying the word of God and worked carefully.Over time, the custom of even counting the letters and words became commonplace.
How carefully the Sopherim worked can be seen from the finds of Quumram (at the Dead Sea).Among these finds, with the exception of the book of Esther, all Bible books are represented, but mostly only in fragments. The Jesaia scroll was completely present, of the Psalms 36 copies, of the fifth book of Moses 29 copies, of the other books often less than a tenth. But from these finds it was possible to see how exactly it was written off.
As far as the Christian-Greek scriptures or the so-called New Testament are concerned, there are three complete copies of the copy, which go back to the original from a number of copies, which are the “codex vaticanus”, “the codex sinaiticus” and the “codex alexandrinus”; in between a lot of fragments, the oldest of which (a piece of the Gospel of John) was dated to the beginning of the second century (which was not only due to radiometric methods, but also on the basis of then in use fonts).
So, as far as the sequence of copies is concerned, there is little doubt about the correct tradition; inthetical to falsifications have crept in with regard to translations, mostly from the theological conviction of the translator, but these can be identified on the basis of reliable transcriptions.However, the number is often overestimated, but the effects were often very important. [1
since the God of the Bible is concerned that his word should be as accessible as possible to all people, he has ensured the widest possible dissemination.The Bible is by far the most widely used religious book; this despite the fact that for more than 500 years the “layman” was forbidden to read the Bible in the vernacular and various translators were persecuted by the Inquisition with the threat of death penalty.
the God of the Bible did not have the Bible written as a scientific textbook, but since God is omniscient, it contains statements that go far beyond the knowledge of the times at that time, and when it makes scientific statements, it is accurate and accurate with the facts (not always with theories).For example, their geographical, historical, astronomical and other data have been repeatedly confirmed, but never refuted, by excavations, although many have been questioned before.
Parallel reports, such as the synoptic Gospels, show that they were not write-offs, but reports that took place from the point of view of the respective writer, with age, mentality, occupation and the like playing a role here. Played
Although about 40 scribes have written on the 66 books of Holy Scripture, often with time differences of centuries, the Bible has a uniform theme from beginning to end and is completely harmonious; thus free of (real) contradictions, which suggests a truth-loving author who has monitored the transcripts.Contradictions arise only through incorrect interpretation.
The author of the Bible has reserved the right to be the interpreter of his word (Genesis 40/8; 41/16; Dan.2/28).Accordingly, the correct rule for interpreting the Bible is: “TheBible explains the Bible”; this is particularly true of the parts of the Bible written in symbolic language.The God of the Bible has ensured that the “code” for deciphering the Bible was often written centuries in advance, without the scribes of these acts being aware.
the God of the Bible has ensured that we have received reasonable and thus satisfactory answers to questions on which, in the worldly sense, “the mind” has already broken our heads in vain, such as “the origin of life (especially its complexity). , which today knows science like never before in the history)”, existence of evil, “what the future brings”, “sense of life” etc.
the application of biblical moral standards, despite the imperfection of man, yields the best results in relation to interpersonal relations; which suggests that the “constructor” of man knows best about his “construction”.(Jes.48/17)
many servants of God (especially after the ministry of Jesus on earth) have confessed with their lives that what they have seen and heard is based on truth.(Acts 4/20)
Only the God of the Bible has worshipdens from the beginning of human history to the present day
had; most “gods” are only of historical interest.
the God of the Bible has proved himself to be a God who has made events centuries and millennia in advance, often in great detail, and, unlike fortune tellers, clairvoyants, and various prophets, has a 100% success rate; and thus challenged the future forecasters and astrologers of other nations to do the same (Isaiah 47/12,13).An example of this is the Messiah prophecies:
The Total these points (not individual points alone) are proof that the God of the Bible is the true God and the Bible is his revealed word.Jeho.vas witnesses are, of course, willing to provide detailed information, clarify details, answer relevant questions and comment on objections for the sum of these allegations.

There were two Bethlehem in Palestine, hence the clarification of the prophet “Bethlehem-Efrata”.An important indication of the Prophet is that the expected Messiah has a pre-human existence.

How does this prophecy be explained, if not by God?And this prophecy is one of many. Smart minds think they were written down retrospectively. This interpretation is refuted by the fact that the Jews – who do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah – also have them in their Bible.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are willing and free to help people learn the Bible (more precisely).
