The World And How We See It

The stories in the bible date back centuries. The bible is a copulation of stories handed down by word of mouth, hence the gospel, (the good news) mixed with traditional written Jewish text (the Torah) along with hand written scrolls dating back to biblical times.

It took kings, scholars, and men in the hierarchy of the church to put together the bible as we know it today. Most popular the King James Version. Many stories have been left out. It is one's choice to seek after the chapters that were put aside and intentionally not included for one reason or another. This leading to our generations interpretation of the things that took place over three thousand years ago. Many a movie has attempted to visually depict the bible as written. Some more successful then others. Currently, through collaboration of many, the history channel has put together a 10 week series called The Bible. 2013 Bible story telling is no doubt Hollywood enhanced but it gives a pretty good depiction of what has been written especially for the young ones who need that visual stimulation as opposed to someone standing before them giving their version of the events that took place. Putting ones self in their shoes, this is a fascinating piece to teach with. Gods word is being spread in a contemporary way.  God has no problem with that. As long as the message is being heard and spread. 

Mark 16:15 - And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
2 Timothy 3:16 - All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
