Who wrote the Bible?
Question: Who actually wrote the Bible and all of its books?
Answer: In the gospels found in the Bible, we frequently find Jesus' statements, "it is written” referring to the Old Testament Scriptures. Jesus' quotation of Deuteronomy 8:3, during the time when he was tempted forty days by the devil, confirm the validity of the Old Testament Scriptures and who wrote it.
The following is an even more powerful statement by Christ in Luke 24 when he said to his disciples, 'These are the very things I told you about while I was still with you: everything written about me in the Law of Moses, the writings of the prophets, and the Psalms had to come true' (Luke 24:44).
Concerning the authors of the various books of the Bible, it is widely known that Moses wrote the Torah, the first five books of God's word, and there is scriptural evidence of it:
According to Jewish tradition, either Joshua or Ezra inserted, at the end of Deuteronomy, the account of Moses death. The book of Joshua bears his name because he wrote it. He continued where Moses' portion ended in the Book of the Law (Joshua 24:26). The book of Judges is generally attributed to Samuel, but it is a little unclear exactly when he authored it.
The authors of the two books of Samuel are not known with certainty. Some attributes them to the prophet Isaiah, while the Pelubert Bible Dictionary refers to different people, including Samuel himself (1Samuel 10:25), Nathan the prophet, Gad or Iddo the seer. This is the same situation for the books of 1 and 2Kings. The authors are not known for certainty. Chronicles are traditionally attributed by the Jews to Ezra, and probably correctly so, in spite of modern scholars that believe they were written at a time past Ezra.
