The Bible as we know it, is a collection of 66 shorter books, written over several centuries, and by several authors. This Book is proven to be
inspired, every word, every letter, by:
Fulfilled prophecy, contained in its own pages, which has come true in every detail.
(to a lesser degree) Archaeology, which correlates with the Bible in a general way, and sometimes in a very specific way - for that see the books of
The mathematical substructure of the entire text, in both Hebrew and Greek - see the work of Ivan Panin and the Meru Project. Both alphabets show
every sign of having been created by non-obvious means (call it supernatural if you wish), each letter has a phonetic, a numerical, and a pictographic
value. When the numerical value is substituted for the phonetic value, coherent patterns of numbers emerge on multiple levels, which vex any human
mind trying to comprehend it. It is beyond all human intelligence, and no, I am not talking about ELS "codes."
The elevated moral tone of this Book is quite beyond the bounds of the ordinary human heart. So, we see in this Book, not only a higher Intelligence,
but a higher moral sense as well.
BTW, the name you will find for God in most Bibles, "Lord," really stands for YHWH (Yahweh), which means, when we plug in the very ancient
pictographic meanings of the letters, "Behold the Hand, Behold the Nail," that is to say, Jesus. That's just another detail in that self-validating
