Authors of the Books of Bible

Greetings, peace and blessings in the name of our LORD Savior Jesus Christ.

All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)


Bible was written by approximately 40 men of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years. Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paul was a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd. Despite being penned by different authors over 15 centuries, the Bible does not contradict itself and does not contain any errors. The authors all present different perspectives, but they all proclaim the same one true God, and the same one way of salvation—Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Few of the books of the Bible specifically name their author.
