​IS THE BIBLE STILL RELEVANT TODAY?

 IS IT POSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE OR SHOULD WE ONLY HAVE FAITH?​​​ kindredsubjectsDOTblogspot.comSLASH2012SLASH03SLASHalimpsest-of-hebrew-poetry-overtopml.jpg


In the age we live, the relevance, reliability and historicity of the Bible is seriously questioned. The world in which the Bible was penned is very different from our world today, which renders it difficult with which to relate by say, modern Western Society. So is the Bible still applicable to modern person, who has moved so far along the road of civilization?


The intention of this site is not to defend or debate the reliability, authority and inerrancy of the Bible, but to invite you to join a journey of discovery of the world, language and culture of the Bible. This will enable you to decide on the answer to this question for yourself. The objective  is not to prescribe to you or decide on your behalf what you should believe, but to explain and expose, as helpfully as possible, the meaning and message of the Bible, within its cultural and historical context, empowering you to make your own conclusion regarding the relevance and truth of the Bible and its message for humanity today.


​Tighten your boots and fit your hat, we are about to leave on a long journey, sometimes dry, sometimes difficult, towards an indescribable destination!​​

It is located in the library of the Vatican in Rome. There are older fragments of the Bible that are still preserved however-- the oldest being a tiny scrap of the Gospel of John was found in Egypt, dating back to the beginning of the second century. (It is currently in the Rayland's Library in Manchester, England).​

Did you know that the Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit by over 40 different authors from all walks of life: shepherds, farmers, tent-makers, physicians, fishermen, priests, philosophers and kings. Despite these differences in occupation and the span of years it took to write it, the Bible is an extremely cohesive and unified book.​
