    For believers, who was the influence for the old and new testament?

    was god the one who said what was to be put in both bibles or were they written by people who used their own thoughts and ideas?

    The WHOLE Bible is from God: 2 Tim 3:16 "All scripture is inspired by God and is* useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work. "

    The answer is that it is neither one nor the other but all of the above. The Bible is a collection of moral tales, traditions, histories and instructions. To Jews and Christians it is inspired by God, written by humans, and organized by institutions. Biblical literalism, which did not exist until Gutenberg's press made it possible for laymen to possess and read scripture and which did not become popular until John Nelson Darby, does not work because the writings of the Bible were never meant to be taken as comprehensive, literal fact. Instructional stories never are, though that does not obviate the truths they tell.

    It was hope that brought me to the word; God's unconditional love that kept me.
