What are the things that make the Bible so special, and it becomes one of the best-selling books in the entire world? Have you ever asked this question personally? And that is the goal of this article, I will share the uniqueness of the Bible so that you can learn.
For one, it’s CONTENT. No other book in this world addresses mankind’s wicked sinfulness and need for divine redemption.
Only the Holy Bible completely explains man’s origin, purpose, and destiny.
The miraculous way in which the Holy Bible has been given to mankind.
Literally, thousands of manuscripts have been unearthed by archaeologists throughout, the Middle East (over 5,000 of the New Testament alone). If men authored the Bible, then it would have been impossible to bury the many different passages of the Bible, over varying centuries, in different languages and penned by forty different men. God is the divine Author of the Holy Bible.
Obtaining forgiveness from God.
Acts 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
Acts 13:38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Also, only the Bible tells us how to obtain forgiveness, salvation, and peace with God (Romans 5:1; Romans 10:9-13).
God’s love for man. No other book in this world speaks of God’s unconditional love for mankind (John 3:16).
Eternal punishment for man’s wickedness. No other book warns of God’s fierce judgment and eternal punishment upon the ungodly (Revelation 20:11-15).
Fulfilled prophecy. No other book in the world contains as much accurate prophecy (and fulfilled prophecy) as does, the Bible (there is NO prophecy in the Quran). The King James Bible contains 29% prophecy.
Theological harmony of the total of Scripture.
Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
Matthew 26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
Matthew 26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
No other book in the world can boast of such harmony of agreement, between over forty known writers (God being the Divine Author), spanning 1,500 years of time; and yet arranged in one perfectly interwoven volume.
The Bible gives us a detailed explanation of the creation of the universe and teaches that the universe was created by the Word of God…
Hebrews 11:3, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
There is your answer friend, God created the universe out of NOTHING! God did the impossible as ONLY God can do. What other book in this world claims that God created the world out of nothing? Could such a book be a mere coincidence when it so perfectly answers all of the perplexing questions I presented to you earlier? The Bible is undoubtedly the Word of God that it claims to be. No other book even compares.
Jesus Christ is the Creator, God Almighty…
Colossians 1:13-17, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
We read in Hebrews 11:3 above that “Through FAITH we understand…” It is ONLY through faith in the Word of God that anyone will ever understand the truth about creation. The atheists and evolutionists do NOT have faith in God or the Bible; rather, they have placed their faith in unproven theories, speculation, and false science.
The great error of their thinking is the failure to concede that THERE IS NO LOGICAL ANSWER OTHER THAN A DIVINE CREATOR. Evolution cannot be proved because it is a dirty lie of the Devil. Evolution is false. Evolution is stupid.
Evolution is baseless speculation. The ONLY plausible answer is God. The Bible confirms what our common sense should teach us about the origin of the universe. Creation couldn’t have happened without a divine Creator. The proof is irrefutable that God exists! History proves that the King James Bible is God’s inspired, preserved, inerrant, Word of God.
