The Bible Is Different

This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


When looking at or reading about ancient artifacts and documents from Bible times, watch for both similarities and differences. You might recognize names, places, or even events from the Bible. Some of the myths, like flood or creation myths, may even sound familiar to you because the true account of what happened is recorded in the Bible.

But note the differences. The Bible doesn’t portray events as if they are myths. It uses historical narrative. Unlike other ancient sources, the Bible presents one true God, the Creator. In the Bible, God is the source of power; in other documents the gods are controlled by magic.

The Bible is distinctly different because its author is God.
