The Word of God (Holy Bible) is an inspired word of the Holy Spirit, God has given to humankind to help us understand His plans for our lives.
NOTE:
1.   The Holy Bible was not arranged chronologically. 
2.   The Holy Bible was written by the literate, illiterate, kings, fishermen, and holy people. It was written in scrolls and stones and finally compiled by the disciples of Jesus Christ.
3.   The old testament was written in the Hebrew language whiles they wrote the New Testament in Greek and Aramaic language.
4.   The accepted part of the Holy Bible is known as the canon meaning it was authoritative, inspired by the Holy Spirit and endorsed by the Apostles of Jesus Christ
5.   The rejected part of the Holy Bible is known as the Apocrypha because the Apostles believed it was not inspired by the Holy Spirit and not authoritative.

The Purpose of God’s Word
