Who wrote the Bible?
What if the disciples got together and just made up the religion, then wrote the books of the Bible?
The people who wrote the Bible were very careful.
History records of the 12 ‘disciples’ of Jesus, every single one of them was killed because they believed Jesus is Lord and that he rose from the dead. There was one exception - the Apostle John was not killed for being a Christian. But he was sent into exile for the rest of his life because he was Christian.
The apostle Paul also died because he was a Christian. From this, it would seem unusual if the disciples made the story of Jesus up. Why would they all be prepared to die for a lie which they knew they had made up? Why not admit your lie rather than be killed?
