Actually Real and True

Author's Bias | Interpretation: conservative


Among its many unique features, the Bible is the only religious book where God is involved with the whole of human history from creation to end. How God reveals Himself to man is also unique.

When Moses, the Bible’s very first author, began to compose the very words of God, he did it when God Himself intentionally demonstrated the reality of His Being through the extraordinary miracles of the Exodus (Ex 6:6-7). This historical reality becomes the objective basis of faith for the nation of Israel (Ex 19:3-6).

God would use the Exodus as a reminder to the nation of Israel of the reality of His existence with the mandate of opening the Ten Commandments with: "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery" (Ex 20:2).

Through this event, God defines truth as corresponding to reality.
