Here is a novel idea.. talk to the people who not only wrote the bible, but have studied it for over 2 millenium.. Talk to a Catholic Priest...
The people who wrote the bible were (( Jews )).. not roman catholics.. or easterns or russians either..
They also were not christians..
Jesus also was not a christian.. but a Jew.. and not a roman catholic.. the apostles were also JEWS..
Jesus never every said read the bible.. because there were no bibles to read..
WHY?... because most all people couldn’t read at all, anyway..
Thats why they had “scribes”... thats what they did.. (read and write)..
Did you know Jesus name was not Jesus?..
Hebrew and Greek have no “J”... the “J” comes from latin..
The name Jesus was invented by the Romans..
And yet Jesus read from the Scripures in the synagouge.
