Can anyone know who really wrote the bible? Read here and tell me what you think :)?

Many people are told that we can’t be sure who wrote the Bible. But the Bible is often clear about who penned its contents. Some parts begin with such phrases as “the words of Nehemiah,” “the vision of Isaiah,” and “the word of Jehovah that occurred to Joel.”—Nehemiah 1:1; Isaiah 1:1; Joel 1:1.

Most Bible writers acknowledged that they wrote in the name of Jehovah, the one true God, and that they were guided by him. Prophets who wrote the Hebrew Scriptures proclaimed more than 300 times: “This is what Jehovah has said.” (Amos 1:3; Micah 2:3; Nahum 1:12) Other writers received God’s message through angels.—Zechariah 1:7, 9.

The Bible was written by some 40 men over the course of 1,600 years. Some men were used to write more than one book of the Bible. In fact, the Bible is a miniature library of 66 books. It consists of the 39 books of the Hebrew Scriptures, called by many the Old Testament, and the 27 books of the Christian Greek Scriptures, often called the New Testament.

    - The Jewish scribes in 560 BCE when they were slaves in Babylon wrote down the stories that had been told over campfires for a few thousand years. And since Sumerian was the pre-cursor language to Hebrew, they were stories from the Sumerian tablets.

    - Only in your dreams. Most of the people were made up and the Torah was written in 560 BCE and the last time anything was written was a little over 600 years later. Try reading something intelligent rather than just regurgitating fundie lies.

    It doesn't matter.

    The great and wonderful 'bible' laid the groundwork for the rewards of Islamic extremism ....

    Matthew 25:1 -- Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps,

    and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

    Muslims took it 1-very essential step further = They made the reward 72 virgins, instead.

    No is the straight answer, the same as no one can really know if what's written in it ever even happened. In billions of years, with enough convincing, the world may believe that vampires existed. All hail Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    It's well acknowledged academically to be almost entirely anonymous. The claims of books being named prophets or disciples are all fraudulent. Even regarding Paul, the most well known author, half of the books are forgeries and there's still debate about his real identity.

    The history of writing the Bible; who, when, and why is available and fairly common knowledge. See, The Catholic Study Bible.

    The Author of the Bible is God, but he used men to write it.

    This is similar to a businessman telling his secretary to write a letter that contains his ideas.

    God used his holy spirit to guide the Bible writers to record his thoughts.

    God’s spirit guided them in various ways, sometimes causing them to see visions or have dreams that they would then write down.

    Do you really think that a supernatural being who allegedly lives in the sky communicated telepathically to a bunch of superstitious pagans thousands of years ago by a very dubious technique called divine inspiration?..or do you think that maybe they just made it up..

    most if not all were transcribed by disciples or seers for the most part. This is true for both books as in the O.T and the N.T bibles.
