Bringing together non-believers …
No, the Bible was not written by “God.” It was written by man. Or to be more specific, many men, probably thousands of different people, who over the ages created, contributed, translated, edited and embellished various writings over hundreds of years. After this, various church organizations “canonized” selected writings and created different versions of the Bible. Even today, people disagree over various translations of the books, and the new testament we recognize today was not assembled until the 4th century, 300+ years after Jesus’ time!
The bottom line is that for the most part, nobody really knows who wrote the Bible. Many of the books’ authors to this day remain completely anonymous. But scholars all agree there were numerous authors of both the old and new testament.
