The Bible is the name we use to refer to the Word of God. This Bible is not a single book, but a collection of ancient writings. 66 separate books, written over about 1,600 years, by at least 40 different authors.
“Bible” comes from the Greek word (plural) Biblión / Biblos, whose meaning is “The books” or “The Little Books”. Byblos was a major trading port in the Eastern Mediterranean where papyri and other writing materials were purchased.
