    The Bible was written in many cities and towns, but all of those cities and towns were in the Middle East.

    We can google the answer to this question and probably spend a considerable amount of time.

    But if you want a quicker response--here it is, considering that the bible as we have it right now is composed of 66 books, more if you add the apocrypha and it was written by some 40 different authors over a period of let's say 1500 years. And that it was done a long long time ago. It would be pretty hard to actually pinpoint the exact cities or towns where it was first written down. Some of the books, scholars today cannot even agree who the real author was. But it would be safe to say that it would be in and around Middle East Asia, the Mediterranean, Southern Europe and Northern Africa.

    The Bible was primarily written in and around Palestine. But, it has over 40 authors and was composed over the course of 2,000 years.

    The first five books were thought to have been written by Moses during the Exodus, though this is heavily disputed today. Moderns, apparently more enlightened than the ancients (yeah, right), believe that as many as four authors contributed to those books. A Jehovic writer, who primarily used the "YHWH" designation for God; the elohist writer, who used "Elohim" in reference to God; the deuteronic writer, who wrote Deuteronomy during the reign of King Josiah; and the priestly writer, who put the finishing touches on Leviticus after a complete re-edit and redaction of previous writings after the Exile.

    King David wrote most of the Psalms.

    King David's son, Solomon, wrote most of the book of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs.

    The books attributed to various prophets were most likely written either by the prophet or a trusted student.

    The New Testament was written by and large by the apostle Paul.

    The four gospels are anonymous, but early tradition suggests that Matthew was written by Matthew the tax collector; Mark was written by John Mark, a student of Simon Peter; Luke was written by Luke, a physician and traveling companion of the apostle Paul, who also wrote the Acts of the Apostles; and John was written by the apostle John.

    John the apostle also wrote the three letters that bear his name and the book of Revelation.

    The letters of James and Jude were written by James the Just and Jude, both named as brothers of Jesus in the gospels.

    Simon Peter wrote the epistles that bear his name.

    The letter to the Hebrews was anonymous, though whoever wrote it certainly studied under the apostle Paul.

    Thank you for your question

    Yeah, I'm totally not into religion either. Religion is man trying to reach God by their own efforts. But Jesus Christ is a relationship with God, it is God reaching down to man, becoming one of us, living a perfect sinless life, dying on the cross for our sins (lying, stealing, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, etc.), taking stripes on His body for out sicknesses, and defeating every evil spirit/demon, and then three days later rising from the dead to raise us to new life, bringing salvation/healing/deliverance/protection/wholeness (Greek word "sozo") to our whole person spirit, soul and body, or, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, (Colossian 1-2; Isaiah 53/1Peter 2; etc.) and we can receive this free gift and be saved from eternal death in hell and be transferred to eternal bliss in heaven by repenting/turning from sin and believing on God Jesus Christ, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son Jesus Christ, that whoever believes on Him will not perish into hell but have eternal life in heaven," John 3. I pray Grace and peace to you and grace to believe and be blessed because of it.
    Basically, the city God's Word/the Bible was written in, is probably Jerusalem, where most of the events took place. But as one writer has said, the Bible is a unique book. Actually, it's a collection of books, sixty-six in all. Here is a book 1) written over a 1,500 year span, 2) written over 40 generations, 3) written by more than forty authors [if you line up ten people, five people, two people and try and have them agree on a minor subject it probably won't happen, definitely not on a major topic and the Bible deals with all of life with over forty people agreeing to sound unity, astonishing), from every walk of life-including kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, poets, statesmen, scholars, and more: Moses a political leader trained in the universities of Egypt, Peter a fisherman, Amos a herdsman/farmer, Joshua a military general, Nehemiah a cupbearer, Daniel a prime minister, Luke a doctor, Solomon a king, Matthew a tax collector, Paul a rabbi, 4) written at different places: Moses in the wilderness, Jeremiah in a dungeon, Daniel on a hillside and in a palace, Paul in prison, Luke while traveling, John on an island, others in the rigors of a military campaign, 5) written at different times: David in times of war, Solomon in times of peace, 6) written during different moods: some writing from the heights of joy and others from the depths of sorrow and despair, 7) written on three different continents: Asia, Africa, and Europe, 8) written in three languages: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, 9) Finally, it's subject matter includes hundreds of controversial topics, yet the Biblical authors spoke with harmony and continuity from Genesis to Revelation. There is one unfolding story. Something only God could do. So, God wrote the Bible through these multiple human authors, by His Holy Spirit inspiring them. "The whole Bible is God-Breathed, given by inspiration of God and is useful for teaching, correcting, reproving, and training in righteousness," 2Tim. 3. Grace and Peace.
