> Very well expressed, and I'm sure the thoughts of many. If I may just mention a few things about the Bible and another reason I believe it is the word of God, ,,,, People don't generally get this, but the Book of Mormon is a second witness that the Bible, Old and New Testament, is the word of God and that the Jesus of the old and New TEstament is the Christ, the Son of God. At some future date perhaps we will also have the records of other tribes of Israel, and dig up even more things that absolutely prove the Bible and even the Book of Mormon to be true. But until then, we have to rely on our own faith. In one of our scriptures, it says concerning the various gifts of the spirit, "to some it is given to know, and to others to believe on their words" Isaiah, Ezekiel, David, Abraham, Moses, etc are prophets who knew. They wrote it down and handed it down from one generation to another.
> Have you ever visited the Holy Land? Just walking the walk is a witness in and of itself. Incredible experience to visit the holy land.
> The Dead Sea Scrolls include earlier versions of biblical text. For the earnest scholar, the information is to be found. The Bible is a collection of records kept by various authors. The following scriptures from the Book of Ezekiel talk about the two records coming together. (stick means book)
> The following scripture points out that even back then, the Bible was not appreciated or thanked for. Did the world thank the jews for the bible? No, they persecuted them for not recognizing the Messiah.
> And as far as preserving the Bible, that's pretty much up to God, and I think He has done a mighty good job of it. Imagine, an actual record that had its beginnings at the beginning of time as this earth knows it. Pretty incredible if you ask me.

You make some excellent points here, however, the Hebrew translation for the word that is used in
Ezekiel means stick, or tree ('er) (phonetic pronuncation, I can't type the Hebrew.)

this website is super for that kind or if you ever have questions about the meaning of things Biblical.
You are right about Israel, I lived in Jordan for two years and visited frequently. MB
