What is one of the greatest miracles of the Bible?

One of the greatest miracles of the Bible is its unity. The 66 books of the Bible were written:

  1. On three continents.
  2. In three languages.
  3. By about 40 different people (kings, shepherds, scientists, attorneys, an army general, fishermen, priests, and a physician).
  4. Over a period of about 1,500 years.
  5. On the most controversial subjects.
  6. By people who, in most cases, had never met.
  7. By authors whose education and background varied greatly.
Yet, the 66 books maintain full harmony with each other. And this is because “Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:21). This unity is distinctive from all other books and is proof of the divine origin of the words which God moved men to record. Therefore, there is no doubt that the Bible is the very Word of God.  
This is clearly seen in Paul’s letter to Timothy: “… from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:15-17).  

And if the Bible is truly the Word of God, then it is the final authority for all matters of faith, religious practice, and morals. “Your word is truth” (John 17:17). Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away“ (Matthew 24:35). The words of even the greatest men of earth change, but the principles of God are steadfast forever, for God changes not (Malachi 3:6). The “the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8).

God’s truth never changes, for its Author is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). Those who come to Him for the salvation of their souls will never “hunger” (John 6:35), nor will they “thirst” (John 4:14).
