Bible 6 Billion Copies
December 18, 2011 by staff
Bible 6 Billion Copies, The Bible is a collection of texts written by different people. Certain texts were written by historians who tried to show what Ancient Israel was like. Other texts are poems about God. Still others were used to make laws. All texts were written over a period of about 1200 years. Followers of Judaism and Christianity consider the Bible sacred but they do not all agree about what belongs in the Bible. A number of texts are both in the Hebrew Bible, used by Jews, and the Christian one.
Some Christian Bibles are interpretive translations of Hebrew and Greek writings into English and are therefore full of errors and misunderstandings of the texts they seek to interpret. It is widely considered a wise course of action to accept the fact that many errors have occurred and only private study of the ancient languages or careful use of dictionaries can overcome these errors for the Bible student. Some Bibles, such as the 1611 King James Translation (commonly known as the Authorized King James Version of the Bible), are directly translated into English from the original languages. The accuracy of literal translation without human interpretation was ensured by many different scholars congruently translating every word from the original scripts.
There are many names for the Bible; some call it Holy Scripture, Holy Writ or the Good Book. The Bible was written long ago in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, and translations were made later into Latin and some other languages. Now there are translations in English and many other languages. The word ‘bible’ is a transliteration of the Greek word ‘biblos,’ which means simply “book.”
When talking about the Bible, a book is used to speak about a number of texts. All the texts that make a book are believed to belong together. Most of the time, people believe they were written or collected by the same person. Sometimes, all the texts of a book also have a common subject, for example how to punish someone who has done something against the law. The Bible contains different kinds of such books. Some are history, telling the stories of the Jews, Jesus, or Jesus’ followers. Some are collections of wise sayings. Some are God’s commands to His people, which He expects them to obey. Some are songs of praise to God. Some are books of prophecy, messages from God that He gave through chosen people called prophets.
