What’s Bible Express About? Take a Look!
The Bible is the religious story of the ancient Hebrews and the early Christians. It is a collection of sixty-six books (plus Apocrypha), written by many authors over a period of twelve hundred years – from about 1100 B.C. to A.D. 100.
With few exceptions, the Bible was originally written in Hebrew (Old Testament) or Greek (New Testament). No single book has influenced the world more; it has inspired the greatest works of art and literature of the world and is the most quoted book ever: there are translations in more than 1,700 different languages.
The Bible describes men’s and women’s daily relationship to God and their yearning for true meaning in life. Even within the great diversity of the Old and New Testaments, there are common themes providing unity: there is one God; we are God’s people; sin is alienation from God and from each other; God is just, compassionate and forgiving.
