This subject has been coming up with Great Frequency and IMHO has "Muddied the Waters" on several threads. I think there is confusion of who "Penned" the Scriptures and the TRUE AUTHOR.
In NO WAY, SHAPE, or FORM am I Implying or Overtly attempting to cast a Disparaging Light on the Men That "Penned" GOD'S WORD, HE chose them for a reason..... and that's good enough for me
I say GOD is the TRUE AUTHOR.....and this is my case:
First of ALL....
(2 Timothy 3:16) "All scripture is given by inspiration of God...."
GOD-BREATHED!! Whats that tell you?
But I understand some need a little more meat. As you know, both the Hebrew and Greek Alphabet have Numerical Values assigned to the letters; well................
Here's a couple GEMS:
If you take Genesis 1:1..... (In the beginning GOD created Heaven and the Earth.) Then take the (number of the Letters and multiply that times the product of the Letters) then Divide that by the (number of the Words times the product of the Words) you get........ 3.1416 (Pi)
Strange but ok, could be just randomness or nothing.
But lets take a look @ the 2nd Major Creation Verse in the Bible which happens to be in the New Testament and in Greek.......Greek Letters also have numerical values. John 1:1: ( In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD). Do the same thing.....(number of the Letters and multiply that times the product of the Letters) then Divide that by the (number of the Words times the product of the Words). Guess what you get:.......... 2.7182 ("e")!!
"e"......Napierian Logarithm or LOG to the base "e". This limiting value is 2.7182818285.
This number shows up everywhere in mathematics: Wave Mechanics, Electrical Theory, Advanced Math, Distribution of Prime Numbers, Theory of Probability., Pure Theory of Numbers..etc.) Oh...and "e" wasn't discovered until the 17th CENTURY!!
Coincidence huh? ....The 2 Main Creation Verses in the BIBLE = The Basic Constants in the Entire UNIVERSE!!!
The GENEALOGY IN GENESIS 5: Unlike "American" names, Hebrew Names mean something . Did Moses Contrive this? ............
WOW!!!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got another "Jaw Dropper" from Numbers 2:
GOD gave Moses specific instructions on how to set up their camp around the Tabernacle while wondering in the wilderness. By taking the numbers within each tribe (there were three tribes in each of the 4 camps) and placing per GOD'S INSTRUCTIONS.....if you could fly over the camp, this is what you would see.....
WOW!!!!!!!!!! How May Years Before the Cross Was Numbers Written??? PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Equidistant Letter Sequencing: Coding System
This is pretty amazing....
Taking (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) Using 49 (72) sequences, Genesis shown to Illustrate Technique.....
You get Nothing in Leviticus using the Technique.......BUT WAIT :
I think we're a bit beyond coincidence!! Did Moses contrive this? Or, did Moses receive the text LETTER BY LETTER?? Your Call!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!
(Proverbs 25:2) "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."

In closing: if you have ALOT of spare time, Look up Dr. Ivan Panin.
Graduated from Harvard, PhD in Mathematics in 1882. In 1890...discovered the Heptadic Structure underlying Biblical Text. He generated 43,000 pages over 50 years....buckle your Seatbelt!!! There's some Mind Blowing Gems in there...........
GOD IS THE TRUE AUTHOR OF THE BIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
