Isaac Newton was the scientist famous for discovering gravity. Called by many as the greatest scientific mind prior to Einstein, Newton began investigating the Bible to determine whether or not it is authentic. Applying his brilliant mind to the evidence, Newton concluded,
“There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.”¹
But wait a minute! Newton lived in the 1500s. What are scientists and other scholars today saying about the Bible, and are the “sure marks of authenticity” that convinced him still valid today?
