Did God Really Write the Bible?

Yes ... yes he did.

Yes … yes he did.

Here is what happened. “When the Lord finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave Moses the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.” Deuteronomy 9:10

So God wrote the first set of commands.

But when Moses came off the mountain and saw the people partying and worshiping a golden calf, he became angry, threw down the tablets and broke them. Which meant he had to start over. [This was waaaay before control-S and files saved in the Cloud]. Back up the mountain he went.

The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands. Then the Lord came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming … Exodus 34:1-5

There is a long section where God recites the commands to Moses and then …

The Lord said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.”  Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. [I hear writers can behave this way when they’re on a deadline.]  And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments. Exodus 34:27-28

Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai. Exodus 34:32

So God wrote the first set of ten commandments and dictated the second set to Moses, along with all the other commands.

Of course there is much more to the Bible than just his commands, but God is clear as to the authorship of Scripture: He wrote the first draft of the first section. His authorship continues through His Spirit.

No prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, men spoke from God as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21

Jesus said, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me. But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what i say? Moses wrote about me!” John 5:46-47

Jesus said: “David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.” Mark 12:36

These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. 1 Peter 1:12

The Holy Spirit also testifies when He says: This is the covenant I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws on their hearts and write them on their minds. Jeremiah 31:33

The Lord said to Moses in Exodus 25:1-22 and the Holy Spirit was making it clear that the way into the most holy place had not yet been disclosed while the first tabernacle was still standing. Hebrews 9:8 When Christ came as high priest, He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11-12

Those who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God — and fall away, — cannot be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace. Hebrews 6:1-6

The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet. Acts 28:25-27

Through the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. Philippians 1:19

You said through the Holy Spirit, by the mouth of our father David Your servant. Acts 4:23-28

The Scripture had to be fulfilled in which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through David. Acts 1:16

After Jesus gave instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles Jesus was taken up to heaven. Acts 1:2
