You mean that’s in the Bible?

If the Bible is composed of 66 different books, written by 40 different authors over 2000 years, (most of whom didn’t even meet Jesus), how is it then the infallible words of God?

The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, however, is spoken directly by the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself 5000 years ago, here on this link:

  1. But who WROTE the Bhagavad-Gita? Surely even men had to physically write it correct? For God is a spirit and not made of flesh and blood.
    I don’t remember any of the Hebrew scripture writers claiming to have met Jesus.
    But even so, it was written by men true, but inspired of God.
    1 Peter 1:21ย “For prophecy was at no time brought by manโ€™s will, but men spoke from God as they were moved by holy spirit.”
    Does the Quran not say to listen to the words that were written before? Referring to the scriptures of the Bible? The words uttered and written by Moses and the many prophets?
    Just some thoughts that ran through my mind as I read this.

    • The short answer is, the ‘Bhagavad-Gita As It Is’ is neither inspired by man nor written by man. It is spoken directly by the Lord and recorded exactly word for word at the time He spoke it. Thereafter, it was gently passed down in history, without change, (the original version, that is) unlike the Bible or other such texts.

      Many people are moved by the holy spirit as you say, but if all were to write in that spirit and call their books ‘the word of God’ how true would that be?

      I had to pass Bible as a subject before I could graduate high school. But, I realised that the Bible did not have all the answers nor could it take me that step further in spiritual life. So I was guided to the Vedas and my guru and I thus built on what I already learned.

      • I have to agree with you about it being hard to find a Bible that is not someone’s version.
        Translations are hard with any manuscript after so many years. But when you can compare a bible translation with the oldest manuscripts available (any document really) and it matches perfectly (modern language intact as well) then you know you’ve got something special.
        Happy studies

    • You raise a pertinent point ๐Ÿ™‚
      The Bhagavad Gita was the direct teaching of Lord Krishna to the warrior Arjuna on the eve of a great war between good and evil. Yet this ‘Divine dialogue’ did have someone to transcribe it verbatim and that is the sage Veda Vyasa (who also codified the vast Vedas into its current four-fold classification). The Gita is a part of the epic Mahabharata. Veda Vyasa along with another person was bestowed with ‘Divya-Drishti’ ( Sanskrit term for ‘mystic vision’) and hence was able to transcribe this dialogue as is.
      The Mahabharata itself is an intuitive poetic rending by Veda Vyasa of those times when Lord Krishna incarnated on earth, some 5000 years ago.
