Most of the New Testament were written by Jews, but not all. Most of the Old Testament was was written by members of the other Hebrew tribes.

The Word of God is written from a Hebraic perspective not Greco-Roman. This is where alot of confusion happened in translating and understanding Rav Shaul's intent and many other authors. Thanks for the Holy Spirit leading us to the basics of Salvation.AMEN

Okay Rich, now you're talking. :) Wretches like US become Christians when we believe in Jesus Christ & what He by grace* did FOR US on the cross. He, not Paul, is God!

Paul was merely a man who God inspired to teach & write for our ultimate benefit. Like US, Paul also had weaknesses. I read no where in the NT where Paul blamed God for giving him a demon. Whatever the discomfort was, Paul simply asked God to remove it.

*Grace: What GOD gives US when we don't deserve it.

leon, Ya know, I came into christinity because of Paul's writings and for years praised what he wrote until one day something snapped. I saw that grace was NOT in the Ten Virgin prophecy and that Paul blamed God for giving him a demon (2nd Cor.12:7-9). The more I looked the more I tried to defend Paul. It was my attempt to defend Paul that caused me to see that Paul was duped like most of the christians today. I know few will see it and agree, but that was prophecied too.

God is no respector of persons, the Jew and Greek are equal, for God has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell upon all the face of the earth. For the prophecy came not in any time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke moved by the Holy Ghost. All scripture given by inspiration of God, and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

The Scripture was written in the Middle East in ancient Hebrew from the 36th century B.C. by Henoch in 3507 B.C. (ref: Gen.5:1+ Ex.17:14+ 31:18+ 32:15,16,19+ 34:1,4,27-29+ Deut.6:4-9). The N.T. began to be recorded by Matthew in 5 B.C., and finished by John around the 3rd decade A.D. The 1st English Bible based on the latin vulgate was transcribed by John Wycliff in 1380 A.D. And William Whittingham with his colleagues translated the 1st Bible from the Hebrew and Greek in 1560 A.D in Geneva, Switzerland.

The definition of scripture is writing inspired by God, God-breathed or God-spoken words, which he directs whomever he chooses to record them. Paul was an Apostle of Jesus Christ, Christ spoke to him and directed him to go witness Jesus' words, therefore Paul's writings are indeed counted to be scripture.

writings from other religions are not inspired or God-breathed. Words can be tested for virtue and known whether they are truly from God or not. Please Read- Psalm 19:7-11+ 34:8+ 119:129-160, Isaiah 8:10,20, Jeremiah 14:14,15+ 23:21,22+ 29:31+ 30:2, Isaiah 55:6-11, Matthew 5:18+ Matthew 7:15-20, John 8:47+ 10:3-11, I John 4:6, Galatians 1:8,9, Hebrews 4:12, II Peter 1:21.

The Hebrew Scriptures are the oldest antiquity of writing to date. According to the Holy Scripture, the first man Adam was created in 4194 B.C., and in the seventh generation in 3507 B.C. I believe that Henoch began to record the Scriptures when he walked with God, then he was raptured by God 300 years later.
---Eloy on 2/15/08

It is logical that Adam gave the firsthand Genesis history to the seventh generation, which was Henoch in 3507 B.C. The actual temple Scriptures were collected from around the Mediterranean, from Palestine, and the Middle East. Even though the Scriptures were gathered from the various countries of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey, and Greece and Italy, yet they all agree in content and have very little variation. The Holy Scriptures were used since the time of Moses in 1525 B.C.

pt 1: John Wyclif, in 1380 A.D., published the First English Bible, translated from the Latin Vulgate. In 1526, William Tyndale was the first to use the original Greek scriptures to translate the New Testament into English. And in 1530 A.D. he also was the first to use the original Hebrew to translate the Old Testament scriptures into English. To date the best and most accurate English Bible is the 1560 Geneva Bible.

pt 2: The actual temple Scriptures were collected from around the Mediterranean, from Palestine, and the Middle East. The Aleppo Codex is the oldest known complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, handwritten in Tiberias of Palestine in the early 10th century around 915 A.D. by the scribe Shlomo Ben-Buyaa. A copy can be found in the Keter Yerushalayim, The Jerusalem Crown published in 2001 A.D.
---Eloy on 2/15/08

pt 3: The Aleppo Codex is the most authoritative manuscript of the Massoretic text of the Bible, the most accurate, and sacred source document, both for the biblical text and for its vocalization. And I favor using the Original Greek Constantinopolitan Texts for the New Testament biblical source document. A copy can be found in the 1841 The English Hexapla reprinted in 1999 A.D.
---Eloy on 2/15/08

pt 4: To date the best and most accurate English Bible is the 1560 Geneva Bible. It was this Geneva Bible, the "Thanksgiving Bible" which the pilgrims brought to America upon the Mayflower and settled in the English colonies of Massachusettes and the east coast, and on this- Thee Bible- in which the Bible knowledge of the Puritans was built up during the Civil War.

JD_Rich: You have a very focused hatred for the Apostle Paul. Why? His teaching must've spotlighted & touched a nerve regarding one or more of your actively engaged in sins, the likes of which are described in Romans 1.
---Leon on 2/15/08

No, not all of the writers were Jews. For example: the Gospel of Luke and Acts were written by Dr. Luke, a gentile physician.

No, some were from other tribes of Israel. Luke wasn't and neither was Paul even though he lied when he said he was a Benjemite. They couldn't be found at that time so no one could dispute what he said (fortunate for him). Paul said he would be anything people wanted him to be (a real con artist) as long as they agreed with him (a real con job).

Leslie *The writers of the Bible O.T. and N.T. were Jews.*

Saint Luke was not a Jew.
---Ramon on 2/13/08

The writers of the Bible O.T. and N.T. were Jews. The word "Christian" only appears 3 times in the Bible - only to describe the word Messianic (Follower of Jesus, Christ-like). When they converted people, they converted them to Messianic Jewdism.
---Leslie on 2/13/08

Moses & Joshua wrote down the Torah (at least the majority) and were of the tribe of Levi & Ephraim.
Granted all biblical writers were either physical or spiritual descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

All writers, were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Word is Holy Spirit inspiration.
