The Bible, consisting of 66 books, divided into two Testaments (Old and New) is the Word of God. In Peter’s second letter he writes, “for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (). Over a time period of around 1,500 years by about forty different authors on three different continents (Asia, Europe and Africa), in three different languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) the Word of God was written. However, the ultimate source of the Bible is God. Unlike any other document in this world, the Scriptures originate with God, thus making them His Word. This is why Scripture is authoritative, relevant and sufficient.

On Sunday evenings (beginning 15 Feb) at Hills Bible Church, we will running an eight week course which will be a part of our evening services. In this course, we will be walking through the message of the Bible. This will help provide those who attend gain a clear understanding of the Bible’s message and it’s big picture.

21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
