Who Wrote The Bible?


Thanks again for your wonderful insight. You have helped many with their understanding of God’s Word. My question is: who are the human writers of the Bible and what books did they write?


There are 66 books in the Bible written by 40 authors. All the books that bear the names of people, Daniel, Isaiah, John etc. were written by the people for whom the book is named.

The first five books of the Old Testament were written by Moses.

Samuel probably wrote Judges along with 1 & 2 Samuel.

The Author of 1 & 2 Kings is unknown, but Ezra probably wrote 1 & 2 Chronicles.

Many of the Psalms were written by David, the rest by Solomon and various priests.

Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon were written by Solomon.

The Gospels were written by the men they’re named after and Acts was written by Luke.

Paul’s letters were written by Paul, Peter’s by Peter, John’s by John, etc.

The author of Hebrews is unknown although, like many others, I believe Paul was the writer.

John was the author of Revelation.
