We all know that the Bible is important to Christians, but many people don’t understand why. If you’ve ever been curious about what it is that makes the Bible so important in Christian faith and why we should care about it too, look no further!


Some scholars say are the top arguments for believing in the importance of this book. These include things like its origins as a Jewish document written by Jews about other Jews which became a document for Christians; its prophetic messages which give hope to Christians today; and its unique correspondence between words-in-text and meanings-in-context.


Each of these perspectives is valuable in revealing the importance of the Bible to Christians, but I’ll also take a look at what other scholars say are the more subjective reasons why many people find inspiration and consolation in reading Scripture.



The Bible as a Jewish document written by Jews about Jews which became a document for Christians The Bible was only originally written by Jews, which means that its original authors were familiar with Jewish culture, Jewish customs, Jewish history, and Jewish writing style. This is one reason why those who are familiar with those things often find it easier to understand the Bible.



“Whoever knows a people’s literature knows their minds,” wrote German philosopher (and atheist!) Ludwig Feuerbach . This is particularly the case when the document you’re reading deals with issues that are difficult to understand. There is something about the way Jewish scholars wrote Scripture that makes it easier for Jews and Christians alike to understand what it says, because they knew what they were trying to say when they wrote it.



By examining how Scripture was written, we can also understand why it’s so important for readers today. For one thing, even though the authors were from different times in history and from different parts of the world, these ancient documents were all put together into one canon of scripture . They were all able to talk about the same things because they used the same language.


They all talked the same way. What’s more, they weren’t copying each other word-for-word, but rather conceptualizing their ideas in similar ways—or at least, these concepts have been preserved until today through the textual similarities that have emerged since those times.



The Bible as a prophetic book One thing most people can agree on is that Jesus is important. He’s a historical figure whose life and teachings are recorded in Scripture. But just because he is recorded in Scripture doesn’t mean he’s infallible—far from it! In fact, like any other human being, Jesus made mistakes and had bad days .
