    I don't believe it's the word of God ( i had a KGV which show the words of Jesus by red color and i found out only 10% almost is in red so that means the rest was written by several authors because most of it was like "Jesus said or .. then after that he did ... etc.")

    There is no doubt that the bulk of the Bible was written by different authors.
    From:- http://www.bible.org.nz/whowrote.htm
    Who wrote Genesis? Who wrote Exodus? and so on...? [font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]There are some books of the Bible whose authors cannot be known completely.

    The first five books of the Bible, - Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, are referred to in other parts of the Bible and by Jesus himself, as the books of Moses. It is accepted that Joshua (or a scribe on his behalf) wrote the book of Joshua. Then various people wrote Judges,1 Samuel-2 Chronicles which appears to have been maintained as an official record. The authors of Ruth, Esther and Job are unknown. The Psalms were mostly written by king David, Solomon wrote Proverbs Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon. The rest of the prophetical books were written by the people who gave their names to the books e.g Daniel, Ezekiel.

    In the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were written by the men of those names; there are some variations on who people think wrote the Acts, but the most probably author seems to be Luke.

    Paul wrote the following letters/epistles:
    Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, right through to include Philemon.
    [/font][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]
    The author of the Letter to the Hebrews is not identified, but thought to also be from Paul. James, 1 & 2 Peter, 1,2,& 3 John and Jude were written by people of those names. The Revelation was written by John.

    And you call yourself a Christian?! Yes, the individual authors WROTE the books under inspiration, but ultimately they came from God.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:


    105 God is the author of Sacred Scripture. "The divinely revealed realities, which are contained and presented in the text of Sacred Scripture, have been written down under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit."

    "For Holy Mother Church, relying on the faith of the apostolic age, accepts as sacred and canonical the books of the Old and the New Testaments, whole and entire, with all their parts, on the grounds that, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they have God as their author, and have been handed on as such to the Church herself."

    106 God inspired the human authors of the sacred books. "To compose the sacred books, God chose certain men who, all the while he employed them in this task, made full use of their own faculties and powers so that, though he acted in them and by them, it was as true authors that they consigned to writing whatever he wanted written, and no more."

    107 The inspired books teach the truth. "Since therefore all that the inspired authors or sacred writers affirm should be regarded as affirmed by the Holy Spirit, we must acknowledge that the books of Scripture firmly, faithfully, and without error teach that truth which God, for the sake of our salvation, wished to see confided to the Sacred Scriptures."

    108 Still, the Christian faith is not a "religion of the book." Christianity is the religion of the "Word" of God, a word which is "not a written and mute word, but the Word is incarnate and living". If the Scriptures are not to remain a dead letter, Christ, the eternal Word of the living God, must, through the Holy Spirit, "open [our] minds to understand the Scriptures."

    Would that not eradicate the theory that some have of Jesus being God.
