From Latin Bible, which in turn derives from a Greek word that means "books" , the term Bible refers to the work that gathers knowledge about a certain subject . For example: "The first book published by Dr. Mafoet is the bible of modern infectology".
The most usual use of the concept, however, is linked to the Holy writings , which are the canonical books of Tanach (for the Jewish religion) and of Old and New Testament (for Catholics). In this case, Bible It is written with initial capital letter: “My grandfather reads the Bible every night”, “I must buy a Bible for my catechesis class”.
Catholics and Jews believe that the Bible conveys the word of God . It is important to keep in mind that the term is used before the birth of Jesus Christ . The Bible would have been translated, either complete or certain fragments, into more than 2,300 languages.

False truths of the Bible
Although millions of people firmly believe in everything raised in the Bible, many scholars have been able to verify that of the stories told there few have really been such and are more similar to children's stories that highlight the ability to imagine and rely on a magical popular belief That has nothing to do with reality.
The scholar Víctor Claudín, in an extensive analysis on the falsity of the knowledge that appears in the sacred writing begins with a phrase by Da Vinci that says: "The blinding ignorance confuses us. Oh miserable mortals, open your eyes!"and subsequently clearly develops the reasons why the Bible is not credible.
From the inside the Church is seen as a large group of people who seek justice, who desire good and who are convinced that only in compliance with the standards set forth in the holy book can they obtain salvation. However, it is actually an institution that he bases his power on exaggerated dogmatism and the imposition of rigorous mandates for those who call their children.
Throughout history, the church has covered those things in history that it did not want to know because they would endanger his rigid dominion over the peoples; one of those hidden truths is the one that revolves around the marriage that existed between Jesus and Mary Magdalene; It is true that if it were known, it would shake the power of the church and prove that the only way to be faithful to that institution is through denial and blindness.
It is worth mentioning that, everything that is taught in Christianity as authentic is a modification of some pagan symbol or belief that when this religion was adopted as an official they adapted to form a hybrid that, unlike the rest of the then existing religions, It had a divine power that could be used on earth.
All this would lead us to say that the Bible is a product of human beings and not of God, as we are led to believe, a work that contains a high political content that was carried out to record how it was lived at that time and what was the form that the powers that govern the world considered appropriate.
