Two weeks ago in our Sunday Snippets I asked how we got from the young Christian Church in the New Testament through time to the church we attend today. And last week I showed you a great series of books that kids and adults can read that take you on a biographical journey through time, presenting Church history in a readable way. Well this week I have a copy of the New King James Version of the Bible to GiveAway. This year is the four hundred year anniversary of the first printing of the King James Bible and I was wondering if our kids really know where their Bible comes from… How did we get from Ancient scrolls to the Bible they have lying next to their bed?
So I quizzed my kids and we had a great discussion, I used this article, from every student.com as a reference. Each question is asked and answered in the article so if you want to know the answer then just follow the link.
- Historically is the Bible True?
- Why do the Gospel Books provide so many accounts of Jesus’ life?
- Why hasn’t the Bible become corrupted over time, as it gets copied from generation to generation?
- Is there archaeological evidence to support the Bible?
- What do you think about the claim that there are contradictions in the Bible?
- Who actually wrote the books of the New Testament?
- Why did it take so long to write the New Testament?
Then in our quest to discover where the history of the Bible we looked at this article from The English Bible History from GreatSite.com, which has a really readable history including all the the great people who made our Bible the book that we read today. Men like William Tyndale and Martin Luther. The article is followed by a timeline of important events, which is a great summary.
As usual I have to thank CBD, our GiveAway book suppliers for another great book.
