The date and authenticity of the Acts of the Apostles is crucial to the historicity of early Christianity and, thus, to apologetics in general.
How Can We Know the Bible Includes the Correct Books?
Why are there only these 66 books in the Bible? Because God is the ultimate author of the Bible, and He inspired only these 66. All Scripture is breathed out of the mouth of God (Mt 4:4; 2 Tm 3:16). What the human authors wrote did not originate with them but with God, who moved upon them (2 Sm 23:2; 1 Pt 1:20–21).
Is the Old Testament Trustworthy?
What is a modern reader of the Old Testament to do with a book that teaches animal sacrifice, male circumcision, strange dietary codes, and festivals based on an agricultural cycle? Its contents appear to be so ancient and so removed from our day that some dismiss it as “primitive religion.”
Beware As Most Skeptics are Seeking to Feed their Doubt Not Their Faith
Christians why should we not give the Word of God to all skeptics equally? Why should we not always correct the skeptical ridiculer? In what ways has Satan blinded the minds of the skeptics? Why should we get answers now? If insidious doubts ever begin to creep into our minds, spiritual shipwreck is on the horizon. “The Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith.” (1 Tim. 4:1) Why? How? Why should it trouble us?
Who Wrote the Gospels Found in the New Testament of Our Bibles and How Do We Know?
The Double Standard from Skeptics
When we are looking at secular history, historians come across balanced, fair, reasonable but when it comes to the gospels, there is a tremendous double standard. The Gospels, for example, are presumed to be guilty of being frauds, authors unknowable until they are proven innocent, and the bar is raised when it comes to the level of evidence needed. The normal way of investigating historical events, peoples, and places ostensibly are thrown out the window.
THE BATTLE for the BIBLE – OT & NT
Bible chronology has very often been portrayed by critics as inferior, subordinate, secondary to that of the pagan nations. However, the Bible is a historical book, incomparably so among all other ancient writings. The historical records of the ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes, Persians, and others are, primarily, fragmentary; their early periods are obscure or,... Continue Reading →
THE WYCLIFFE BIBLE OF 1382: John Wycliffe Was a Champion of the Bible
Why did most people have virtually no access to the Bible in John Wycliffe’s time? What was the impact of the Wycliffe Bible? How did the clergy react to Wycliffe and his movement? Of what are we convinced, and how does this strengthen our faith? How does God’s Word deepen our love for him?
WHAT IS ONE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD BELIEVE THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD?
The most important question in religious thought is, “Is the Bible the Word of God?” If the Bible is the Word of God, an absolutely trustworthy revelation from God Himself of Himself, His purposes and His will, of man’s duty and destiny of spiritual and eternal realities, then we have a starting-point from which we...

Mistakes Were Made In Copying God’s Word. Was the Purity of the Bible Text Threatened? Were These Serious Enough to Ruin the Message of the Bible?
Sadly, 30 years ago, almost all Christians would have been stunned if they had heard that there were intentional and unintentional changes made in the process of copying the manuscripts of the New Testament over a 1,400 year period, some 400,000+ variants. What does this mean for our translations? Can they be trusted?
