The Bible Portal

The Bible is a collection of short books recording the history of the world, the Jewish people, the life of Jesus, and the early Christian Church. It is unique in that it contains 66 books, 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament written by 40 different authors over 1500 years. No other book in history is as popular, or as revered, nor as diverse in context as the lives of those who wrote it.

Creationists hold a number of views regarding the reliability of the Bible, ranging from strict inerrancy to substantive accuracy. However, all creationists agree that the Bible is history, not mythology or allegory, because the text itself is so obviously historical in style and content unless otherwise implied within the text through a historical-grammatical exegesis.

Due to its being prized as the coveted word of God, the Bible has been better preserved, and translated into more languages, than any other book in history. Original manuscripts can be found in the oldest written languages on Earth, and it also contains one of the longest running genealogical sequence known to exist, spanning approximately 4000 years. There is simply no other book in existence that offers a better chronological record of the early history of the Earth.


Selected article

Caesarea Maritima
Caesarea Palace Site.jpg

In 500 B.C. the Persians gave the Sidonians all the coastline from Dor to Joppa in gratitude for use of their fleet in the Persian invasion of Greece. The Sidonians used this site as an anchorage for merchant ships on the trade route to Egypt, and this location slowly grew into an important coastal town. The city was originally called Straton's Tower after its alleged founder Straton, the king of Sidon. He built a lighthouse and fortifications around this small town in order to protect the port. This Phoenician city fell to Alexander Yannai in 96 B.C. and became part of the Hasmonean kingdom until Pompey conquered it in 63 B.C. It was temporarily under the control of Cleopatra of Egypt, but then the city was returned to Roman emperor Augustus.

Selected biography

Bust of Michelangelo's David

David (1085 BC–r. 1055 BC-1015 BC), (Hebrew: דָּוִד, Davíd; Arabic: داوود, Dāwūd ; Geez : Dāwīt ; "beloved"), was the second King of the United Kingdom of Israel. King David was born in Bethlehem, about 1085 BC (1040 BC according to Edwin R. Thiele), and he was a part of the tribe of Judah (and king of that tribe only for seven and one-half years). He became king of all Israel in about 1048 BC, and reigned successfully until about 1015 BC.


Selected Passage

2 Peter 3:3-6 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." 5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. (NIV)
