The Scriptures, as spoken of on this site, represents the 66 books found in the Protestant Bible, with 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books found in the New Testament. It is our view that these books were written between 1446 BC and 96 AD, representing a time span of about 1,500 years, by the hands of about 40 different authors. The time frame and the number of authors can be debated, but the books named or selected within the canon of 66 books are closed and is non-negotiable within the Protestant Church since the 16th century. Some may argue for an earlier start time of the writings or plus or minus one author. But in the end, the Scriptures are viewed as God’s revelation revealed to humanity by God Himself.
