The first book in this series presents an overview of the great theme of the entire Bible. Whether we follow the promise of God to send a Saviour for the human race, or trace the history of God’s chosen people, everywhere the Bible is pointing to Jesus the Messiah and then, in the New Testament, how the Messiah prepares for the future of his church. Some of the remarkable prophecies of the Bible – a significant problem for the critics – are examined in the second chapter. A chapter is devoted to the evidence of eyewitness accounts and how the Bible reveals itself as an authentic record of events that really happened. Which leads to the seemingly unnecessary question: ‘Did Jesus really live?’ Unfortunately, it is a question asked more now than ever before, although the answer is simple and decisive. There is not a single text in the first few centuries that questions the reality of the life and death of Jesus. Roman and Jewish historians and pagan philosophers and sceptics refer to the life of Jesus. They may doubt his resurrection and ridicule his miracles, but no one questioned that he really lived.
Chapter five looks at some of the people and events referred to in the New Testament letters that reveal the letters to have been written well before the close of the first century and the death of the apostles. Finally, we examine evidence in the Old Testament that reveal it as a record of events that undoubtedly happened. Claims are made, information is given and phrases are used that would be impossible for a writer to ‘invent’ many centuries later.
Along the way there are surprises and facts you may never have considered. This strong historical foundation of the Bible prepares us for Book 2 in which we consider what the Bible really claims for itself. It is this decisive claim that inevitably draws so much opposition. If the Bible is what it claims to be, it must be taken seriously — and the implications of that are enormous.
