Question: "What is Bibliology?"

Answer: 
Bibliology is the study of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. The Bible is the sacred book of Christianity, a collection of ancient writings (66 books for the Protestant canon), from a number of authors (40, spanning a period of roughly 1600 years of composition) that Christians hold are inspired by God, for the proclamation of the Gospel and the edification of the Body of Christ.

Some common questions about Bibliology are:

Inspiration: Is the Bible the inspired word of God?  What are the different views of inspiration?  Does the Bible itself claims that every word, in every part of the Bible, is inspired by God? (1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Inerancy and Infalibility: Does the Bible contain any errors or contradictions?  What about the supposingly differing accounts of the who was at tomb?  Is there a valid explanation for these different accounts (Matt 28:1, Mark 16:1, Luke 24:1 & John 20:1)?

Canon: Who determined what books should be included in our canon?  How did the Jewish people view the sacred scriptures in their time.  Why does Catholicism view the Deutercanonical books as inspired scripture, but Evangelicalism does not?

Textual Criticism:  Why do some versions of the bible have more verses that others?  How did God preserve the text of ther Bible?  Do we have any of the original writings of the Moses, the Prophets or the Apostles?

These are just some of the questions about the Bible that we hope you will find answers for here.  Should you have any questions, or not find a resource, please feel free to email us.
