Put on Your Biblical Glasses

This week on the History for Christian Teens podcast, your hosts, Crystal and Kevin Niehoff, talk about the most loved, most hated, most read, and most censored book in history- the Bible. Be sure to listen in as we discuss the importance of seeing the world, others, and ourselves through the lens of God’s Word.

 

We kick off this episode by learning some great facts about the Bible. For example, did you know the Bible has a total of 66 books by 40 authors? With 40 authors the Bible has been written on 3 continents- Asia, Africa, Europe! Then, we learn the purpose of the Bible, in a nutshell, is that it is the story of God’s redemptive plan to rescue humankind and restore His creation, taking place over six major acts. Throughout the ages, the Bible has shown itself to be trustworthy and reliable. Archeologists and historians told of the works of ancient writers such as Caesar, Tacitus, and Josephus to name a few. Undeniable scientific accuracy of the Bible. In the end, a lot of boils also down to faith,  “Apart from faith it is impossible to please God.” (Hebrews 11:6).

 

In light of the accuracy and reliability of the Bible, we should put on our Biblical glasses to view history, and everything else, through the eyes of our Creator, the  All-knowing, All-seeing, Almighty, infinite, eternal God.

 

Next week- We go back to the beginning to find out how humankind ended up in the mess of sin and death by exploring the lives of the very first man and woman.
