The AUTHORS and DATES identified are based on best archeological and historical information.
The writers of Judges, Ruth, Esther, Job and Hebrews are uncertain. However, the Canonical value of these books is without dispute among both Jewish and Christian Scholars.

It is interesting to note that Jesus Christ made references to all of the 39 Old Testament books either directly or by inference. However, Jesus did not mention even one book of the Apocrypha, even though many of those books were known in His time!

Verses and Word data from the King James Version.

God's Word is incredible! Remember that God's Word is "god-breathed", inspired of God, but written by men. God's Word in the original tongue is infallible. The Bible Code mentioned above validates the accuracy of the Hebrew text!
