Many people who mock the message of the Bible say that God hasn't written the Bible, but the people. These mockers say that the Bible is the book of the men, not the book of God.
The Bible is written over thousand years by the many Jewish people. The Bible is the word of God, whereby, He has spoken and influenced writing to the Bible and thus brought forth His will and the salvation in each phase of the history.
The Bible says that the prophecy (the word of God) was not at any time borne by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke, as they were guided by the Holy Spirit. People have written the Bible, but they have written it by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
I bring forth an illustrative example, which enlighten this matter. In the workplace, firm leader dictates the text to the secretary, who is writing it up. We can say that the secretary has written the text, but he wrote it just the way the director said this to her. The secretary did not make an interpretation and not brought forth her thoughts, but just what the director told her. The Bible is born exactly the same way. People have therefore written the Bible, but they have done it by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. So the Bible is, after all, the word of God.
The Bible describes phases of the nation of Israel because God chose one very small nation by which He revealed Himself to the mankind. The Bible describes also life of individual men and their relationship with God. The Bible tells also about feelings and thoughts, including the joys, sorrows, failures, successful choices of these people. But, however, all these different situations are reflected in God and God's will. The Bible reveals God's word to the mankind, because the Bible is the Word of God. God saves sinful man by the Lord Jesus after repentance and believing in Jesus. God teaches by His Word the basic values of the life, according to which man is good to live. God reveals by His Word future events. God reveals in His word the way the fountain of eternal life. Overall, the center of the Bible is God and the salvation of the Lord Jesus, the Messiah.
