1 How We Got Our Bible Session 1: Ancient Texts

2 Introduction All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

3 Introduction What is “all Scripture”? “The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven…. The Bible is a product of man, my dear. Not of God. The Bible did not fall magically from the clouds. Man created it as a historical record of tumultuous times, and it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book” (p. 231).

4 Introduction What is “all Scripture”? “Who chose which gospels to include?” Sophie asked. “Aha!” Teabing burst in with enthusiasm. “The fundamental irony of Christianity! The Bible, as we know it today, was collated by the pagan Roman emperor Constantine the Great” (p. 231).

5 Introduction What is “all Scripture”? “…until that moment in history [Council of Nicea, 325 A.D.], Jesus was viewed by His followers as a mortal prophet…a great and powerful man, but a man nonetheless. A mortal” (p. 233). “Jesus’ establishment as ‘the Son of God’ was officially proposed and voted on by the council of Nicaea” (p. 233).

6 Introduction What is “all Scripture”? “Anyone who chose the forbidden gospels over Constantine’s version was deemed a heretic. The word heretic derives from that moment in history. The Latin word haereticus means ‘choice.’ Those who ‘chose’ the original history of Christ were the world’s first heretics” (p. 235).
