    The Christian define properly Jesus plus Books equal Bible. The Bible does not mean law. The Koine Greek word biblia means “books”. Either Hebrew word Tanach. The sacred book of Christianity, a collection of ancient writings including the books of both the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Hebrew Scriptures, the sacred book of Judaism. A book or collection of writings constituting the sacred text of a religion. The word scriptures mean “A sacred writing or book”. “A passage from such a writing or book”. “The books of either the Old Testament or the New Testament or of both: The Bible”. These are obviously right definition of Bible. Therefore, the Word was with God, Jesus is.

    However, let’s look at the Jehovah’s Witnesses view on term Bible. They explain the word “Bible” means “Law”. Their reason is obviously the Watchtower Society & Bible Tract contains policy. So the members must follow the arranging schedule and morality based on their biblical views than God’s Will. When you read the Bible, you do not see which day and time for worship. But you do the Will of God by helping people, showing people the beautiful qualities from Jehovah God, teaching people from what you learned and experienced, not just preaching is good enough for salvation. Oh, no, but the more is the sight of God. Hmm, perhaps if that society changes to accept Bible is book instead of law.

    Define the bible? An attempt by ancient thinkers to explain (wrongly) the then nature's unknown, and write it in such a way that it benefits them.

    The decision on which writings should be in the NT was made by some men who said they agreed with those writings. They were followers of Paul, so he dominates the NT. However, of the 13 or 14 attributed to Paul, he actually was only responsible for 7 of those writings. Several of the writings fraudulently state that Paul was responsible (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Colossians, Ephesians).

    The Protestant soteriology that is assigned to Paul's writings (substitutionary death paid to God, etc.) were generated 1100 years ago by Anselm.
