3. Is the Bible True?
Of course the Bible is true. The Bible revealed scientific facts long before it was possible for human beings to know them. This proves the divine origins of the Bible. This is called scientific foreknowledge and it is one of the proofs of the Bible. Consider these four scientific truths.
1. The Expanding Universe
In 1929 AD, Astronomer, Dr. Edwin Hubble, discovered that the universe was expanding and this led to the discovery of the Big Bang. But about 3,500 years before him, the Bible told us the universe was expanding!
He alone spreads out the heavens … ~ Job 9:8
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent … ~ Isaiah 40:22
2. The Earth Floats in Space
Around 3,500 years ago, the Bible revealed that the earth floated in space. This fact was not discovered by man until 3,200 years later.
… He hangs the earth on nothing. ~ Job 26:7
3. Innumerable Stars
Over 3,400 years ago, the Bible revealed that the stars were too numerous to count. 3,000 years later, astronomer Johannes Kepler thought there were exactly 1,005 stars. It wasn’t until the invention of powerful telescopes in the 20th century that we knew the stars are indeed too numerous to count.
“Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” ~ Genesis 15:5
2,000 years ago, the Bible revealed that matter is made of atoms which are invisible to the naked eye. Science did not discover the atom until the 19th century; 1,800 years later.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. ~ Hebrews 11:3
No other “sacred text” gets science right; only the Bible gives true facts about science long before men could have known them. God revealed Himself through scientific foreknowledge.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness ~ 2 Timothy 3:16
Science Confirms the Bible
