How do we know we can actually trust the accuracy of the Bible? Is the Bible an ancient document that has been tampered with? Has it been edited many times over the centuries and now is filled with errors? How can we know what the Bible really said when the originals no longer exist?

According to a nation-wide study released by the American Bible Society (2014), almost half of all Americans do not trust the accuracy of the Bible. So, how can you know that you can trust the Bible? and What do you say to those who question its reliability?

"The Bible can be trusted," says author Dr. Timothy Paul Jones. The good news is that the Bible is reliable, even though it was hand copied and there are variations between texts. Teach your class with this ready-to-use PowerPoint® presentation that explains the variations and why they don t affect the trustworthiness of the Scriptures.

This PowerPoint gives answers to refute the following claims:

  • The Gospels were written long after Jesus lived by people who weren't eyewitnesses.
  • The stories about Jesus' life and death were not handed down reliably and not recorded accurately.
  • The Bible is full of textual errors, as proven by the Dead Sea Scrolls
  • The New Testament wasn't finalized until hundreds of years after Jesus and his disciples, so there could have been many other "Gospels" accepted and later rejected -- in addition to the four Gospels found in the Bible today.
  • The originals of the Bible are lost, therefore we have no way of knowing what it actually said.
  • The Bible was edited by people who had an "agenda" and changed many teachings.

Discover 10 solid reasons why you can trust the Bible and find out how to answer common questions about its reliability with this ready-to-use PowerPoint®. Author Dr. Timothy Paul Jones responds to critics' challenges in an easy-to-understand way with quick-reference comparison charts, time lines and simple summaries. Packed with fascinating facts and easy-to-understand explanations, this PowerPoint® tells you what you need to know without losing you in theological terms or "overly-academic" language. Instead, it responds to critics' claims in a simple, logical, and non-judgemental way. Over 120 full-color and customizable slides.

Dr. Jones' interest in this topic began many years ago when he came across these arguments in seminary. At first his faith was badly shaken and he wondered if he still believed. But as he dug deeper, he found answers. In over 120 full-color slides, Dr. Jones shows the errors in critics' logic and facts and does it in an easy-to-understand style with charts, diagrams, and explanations.
