"Why do ye also The Bible transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" Matthewl5:3 #2 is the inspired Word of God ..... Truth or Tradition? Internal Evidence. Unbelievers like to argue that you cannot go to The Bible itselfto prove it is inspired of God. You must find evidence elsewhere. This borders on the ridiculous. If blood is found at the scene of a crime, how do you determine whether it is animal or human? How dd you tell if a white granular substance is sugar or salt?

In Genesis, the Tree of Life is taken away because of sin, in The Revelation, the Tree of Life is restored. In Genesis, life begins in a garden; in The Revelation, the garden is restored. In Genesis, Paradise is lost, in The Revelation, Paradise is regaine& In Genesis, we read about the beginning of the devil's evil work in The Revelation, we learn of his final overthrow. Truth About Truth. Jesus said: "Sanctify them through thy truth: th word is truth" (John 17:17). Truth will never contradict itself. There are those who believe they have found discrepencies in The Bible, but on careful examination, there is a logical explanation. Some have questioned how 12 priests could carry "the ark" over the Jordan River (Joshua 4:1-11). The Ark of the Covenant was not The Ark of Noah. What do you think?
