In this godless world we all should remember that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word going forth through the mouth of God Which He has provided for the whole world in many Bible translations. Nobody may forget that in whatever language the Bible is inspired by God and as such protected by God's Power so that it can be useful for every person on earth for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, in such a way that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.
For matters that happened in the first century of our common era historians of the first century like Tacitus, Josephus and later ancient writers like Africanus provided enough material to go and further Alexandrian manuscripts, findings from the Qumram caves and research from contemporary archaeologists and historians like Blomberg, Henry, Scott, Tabor, Droge, Ramsay, Samuelsson and many others.
There are no proven external defects in the witnesses all those Biblical authors and contradictory to the adversaries their sayings and writings, no internal defects in their testimony can be found either.
We can look at the biblical authors as Witnesses for Jehovah God, the divine Creator of many universes, as people who were called to testify before humankind and in several occasions were even willing to give up their life for what they considered to be the truth.
