The Bible is the record of the Hebrew people and early Christians. These human authors worked under the influence of God’s Spirit and at the same time under the influence of their community and culture. Why these words? Christians believe that this is God’s meaning in human words in content and message. The cultural history and empirical science was true for their particular time. History is always an interpretation. Science is always experimenting finding new ways to do things. The divine message of God transcends time and space, since it has an eternal ring to it that goes beyond the human authors and their words.
