      1. History of the Bible: How The Bible Came To Us

Important terms to remember:


Skeptics often claim that the Bible has been changed. However, it is important to define the terms that apply to the source of our English Bible.

  • Autographs: The original texts were written either by the author's own hand or by a scribe under their personal supervision.

  • Manuscripts: Until Gutenberg first printed the Latin Bible in 1456, all Bibles were hand copied onto papyrus, parchment, and paper.

  • Translations: When the Bible is translated into a different language it is usually translated from the original Hebrew and Greek. However some translations in the past were derived from an earlier translation. For example the first English translation by John Wycliffe in 1380 was prepared from the Latin Vulgate.
