Webster’s 1922 Dictionary Introduction:
Authenticity of the Scriptures:
Many years ago when enemy armies attacked Jerusalem they always tried to destroy the Temple and confiscate the Sacred Writings. The enemies thought the Scriptures held magic powers but what really gave the Jews their power was their faith in God which they drew from the writings.
If the kings and royal followers did not like the writings they simply declared them to be untrue. Sometimes years went by before the people would discover the truth of the Scriptures but over and over history has proven the Word of God is true. The original sacred writers had no computers or high technology helping them as we have today.
They had no motive to fool anyone by false reports. Actually, the truth was so important to them that it was published in spite of the mocking and public ridicule it brought about by the opposition. There were no telephones and very little means of communication. They wrote the manuscripts by hand and counted every word to insure accuracy. As Jackson stated in his preface of his 1875 Bible, “If the combination of evidence handed down through generations can not convince every inquirer of the Bible’s truth, how can we be convinced of any formal event? What degree of testimony is sufficient?”
