1. Create a list of arguments why the Bible reflects the true word of God the Almighty.

     There are two different arguments as to why the Bible reflects the true word of God, The first being its continuity/unity and unerring continuance despite that so many authors where involved and so many years between each author also had passed. The second being,  the numerous detailed prophecies written in the Bible, that have come perfectly true. Over three thousand prophecies are written within the Bible.

 

2. Explain the differences between Translations and Paraphrases.

    Translations strive to decode a text word for word while Paraphrasing restates the idea while using different words.

Just out of curiosity because I never gave it much thought, but which do you consider more accurate: Translations or paraphrases? Do you consider them equally accurate in giving us the Word as it was meant by the authors?

i don't consider either of them accurate.nobody is around that heard the original speech,sutra or lesson as the case may be.and there is no guarantee that said events even occurred.
