    Actually no man authored the Bible, but many men were used to pen the words. As to who they all were... a few from the New Testament are Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul. I confess I don't know much about the writters of the Old Testament, but the ones I do know are Moses, David, Solomon, and go down the list of books and pretty much the ones with a person's name was written by that person.

    I don't deny that God could enable the pope to speak infallibly-- and I realize that such pronouncements are actually pretty rare. I simply maintain that when he does so, his pronouncements will accord with Scripture. If they don't, he has not spoken infallibly. Strangely enough, you believe the same thing. If the pope were to make an ex cathedra pronouncement that Jesus was not God's unique son, Catholics would and should reject such utterance because it contradicts both scripture and sacred tradition. At the end of the day, both of us understand that scripture is normative. That's not what we've been arguing over for 500 years. I imagine you and I believe almost exactly the same thing about the scriptures themselves. The wrangling seems to be over whether or not papal interpretations carry the same authority as the text does. So far, at least, I'm not convinced that they do. merry Christmas from an estranged brother.

    Jehovah God is the Bible's only Author. 2 Peter 1:21 says; "For prophecy was at no time brought by man's will, but men spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit."

    A bunch of over fed intellectuals who lived at a time when people still thought that the sun revolved around Earth and when you had a headache it was because those demons were in your head.
