    The OT was mostly plagiarized from the Sumerian tablets. They say it was begun 1200 or 1800 BCE, but who knows since they made up the dates anyway. The NT was written over 325 years by hundreds of people but in 325 they voted on what was to be included in the bible. Mark wrote 4 gospels but they voting group decided that only one of them was divinely inspired. Who knows for sure.

    no person guy or woman wrote the Bible. that's a compilation of books written via many diverse authors. lots of the books themselves are in all possibility compilations written via many diverse authors (Genesis and Exodus, as an occasion). some have faith Moses wrote the 1st 5 books, yet it is likely legend on the grounds that writing form, vocabulary, and grammar selection in the text textile. additionally, there are issues of continuous good judgment throughout the time of, which betrays the possibility that the 1st 5 books of the Bible have been written via many diverse hands. the hot testomony replaced into additionally written via many diverse human beings, likely for the time of the 1st century. besides the shown fact that, no person has get right of entry to to the unique records, we in trouble-free terms have copies of copies of copies of copies. each and every of those copies are diverse in some way, so that's impossible to pin down precisely what the unique text textile says. we are able to in trouble-free terms approximate what the unique text textile suggested. So, in a feeling, the Bible replaced into 'corrupted' with the aid of the years of its written transmission via careless or theologically inspired scribes. If God did certainly motivate the Bible, why did not God then shield the unique records so as that we could understand what they suggested? My slump is that those are very human records, written via human beings with their own theological, social, and cultural biases. those texts, in my opinion, do ingredient to God, yet they weren't authored via God. basically my opinion although. wish this helps slightly.

    God inspired man to write the Bible. You can look at any Bible and it gives the author's name.

    2Timothy 3:16

    "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"
