Books and their AuthorsThe Books and their Authors
And who were the authors of the books of the Bible?
"The Bible books by whom?" Eventually, the Bible was composed by God about the author of man. Timothy 3:16 says that the Bible was "exhaled" by God. He oversaw the Bible's authors so that while they were using their own style of writings and their own personality, they were still recording exactly what God was about.
It was not God who was dictating the Bible, but God who completely directed and inspire it. In human terms, the Bible was composed over 1500 years by about 40 men of different origins. Ezra was a preacher, Matthew a taxpayer, John a fisher, Paul a musterer, Moses a pastor, Luke a doctor.
Although the Bible was written by various authors over 15 hundred years, it does not conflict with itself and contains no inaccuracies. Authors all have different points of view, but they all preach the same one real God and the same way of redemption - Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Only a few books in the Bible name their authors.
