From the Latin biblia, which in turn derives from a Greek word meaning “books”, the term bible refers to the work that brings together knowledge about a certain subject. For example: “The first book published by Dr. Mafoet is the bible of modern infectology. “
The most common use of the concept, however, is linked to the Holy Scriptures, which are the canonical books of the Tanakh (for the Jewish religion) and the Old and New Testaments (for Catholics). In this case, the Bible is capitalized: “My grandfather reads the Bible every night, ” “I must buy a Bible for my catechism class. “
Catholics and Jews believe that the Bible conveys the word of God. It is important to note that the term has been used since before the birth of Jesus Christ. The Bible would have been translated, either complete or certain fragments, into more than 2,300 languages.
Historians consider that the Bible was written in various stages between 900 BC and 100 AD. The Old Testament of Christians refers to those books written before Christ; the New Testament, on the other hand, recounts the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
Despite the spiritual and symbolic character of the Bible, archeology has confirmed various events narrated by the Holy Scriptures and even verified the historical existence of various biblical characters.
In Bolivia, an alcoholic beverage prepared with sweet wine, cinnamon, sugar, and egg is known as a bible.
False truths of the Bible
Despite the fact that millions of people firmly believe in everything raised in the Bible, many scholars have been able to verify that of the stories that are told there, few have really been such and are more like children’s stories that highlight the capacity for imagination and support in a magical popular belief that has nothing to do with reality.
The scholar Víctor Claudín, in an extensive analysis of the falsity of the knowledge that appears in the sacred scriptures, begins with a phrase by Da Vinci that says: « Blinding ignorance confuses us. Oh miserable mortals, open your eyes! »And then clearly develop the reasons why the Bible is not credible.
From within, the Church is seen as a large group of people who seek justice, who desire the good and who are convinced that only by complying with the norms established in the holy book can they obtain salvation. However, in reality it is an institution that bases its power on exaggerated dogmatism and the imposition of rigorous mandates for those it calls its children.
Throughout history the church has covered up those things in history that it did not want known because they would endanger its rigid rule over the peoples; one of those hidden truths is the one that revolves around the marriage that existed between Jesus and Mary Magdalene; It is true that if it were made known it would shake the power of the church and prove that the only way to be faithful to that institution is through denial and blindness.
It is worth mentioning that, everything that is taught in Christianity as authentic is a modification of some pagan symbol or belief that when this religion was adopted as official they were adapted to form a hybrid that, unlike the rest of the then existing religions, it had a divine power that could be used on earth.
All this would lead us to say that the Bible is a product of human beings and not of God, as we are led to believe, a work that contains a high political content that was made to record how people lived at that time and which was the form that the powers that govern the world considered appropriate.
