Who are the people who wrote the Bible?
The Old Testament books included a variety of authors, most of them considered prophets, especially the Prophetic books that are named after the prophet usually considered to be the author. For example, the book of Isaiah was probably written by Isaiah himself. The first five books, often referred to as the Pentateuch or the Mosaic books, are believed to be written by Moses. The book of Psalms, on the other hand, contain a variety of songs written by a variety of people, including Moses and King David.
The New Testament is composed largely of letters written by the apostle Paul to various churches; the books are named for the cities in which these churches were found, often with a number indicating the first or second letter that was written and included in Biblical canon. Paul also wrote a few letters to individuals, such as Timothy and Philemon. Other epistles are named for their apostolic authors, such as 1 Peter and 2 Peter (again, two different letters written by Peter) and Jude (or Judas, not Iscariot). The book of Revelation was written by the apostle John — probably the son of Zebedee. The four Gospels — Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — were written by the four followers of Jesus for whom these books are named.
(what this guy means is that the people that wrote this book of fairy tales was probably on shrooms or really crazy at the time.)
