    Not sure. MAN wrote it. GOD spoke it. JESUS lived it.

    It was spoken through the historians and through the spirit of God to prophets or followers and written down (OT) for the Jews.  The (NT) disciples were writing down accounts of Jesus Christ and received further instruction through the Holy Spirit for the remainder of the NT.

    I think most honest persons know that the OTis old copies taken fro much older Egyptian writings designed to frighten the ignorant to make then do more work. The NT was designed to stop the Sicarii movement from spreading to other areas which was controlled by the Romans.  The Romans decided to give the believers of the OT Messiah a Messiah they invented and named Jesus. This why the writers never had Jesus make a derogatory statement against Rome. The Romans then stole the history of the Sicarii to produce Christianity. I am sure that no believer know about his, they were never told, and never will be, but I have told you. Religion is a con game of many tricks and lies.

    Around forty people wrote it down.  Some of the books are a compilation of oral traditions.  Some of them are inspired by God, but Jews and Christians disagree.  Christians see the whole of the Hebrew Bible plus the New Testament as God's word.  Jews generally see the first five books of the Hebrew Bible as God's word and sporadically elsewhere, but not the entire Hebrew Bible, and of course they don't accept the New Testament.

    Completely unknown.

    The old testament was written many thousands of years ago by people lost to history.  They were Jewish, but that's about all we know.  We do know that substantial parts of the old testament were pretty much plagiarized from Babylonian and Sumerian stories that predate it.  For example, the Noah story is pretty blatantly a copy/paste from the old Babylonian tale of Gilgamesh.  There are numerous other examples.

    The gospels in the new testament are also people lost to history.  Many people think they were written by the apostles for whom they are named, but we know this was not the case as they were not written until decades after the events they purport to describe, and were not originally written in right language for the apostles.  The oldest surviving copies we have don't even have the apostle names on them.  It appears that those were added much later.

    Most of Bible is not G-d's own words. However, they are inspired by G-d. Most prophets in Judaism w/ exception of Moses Never got face to face w/ G-d nor G-d talked to them while awaken. They saw angels & saw G-d in dreams. They could hear voices, but could not see or talk to G-d when awaken.In spite of it, They had G-dly knowledge certainly, I think so..

    So, no, Bible is not words of G-d, not completely at least, w/ exception of Torah. Ten commandments was even written by power of G-d on stones...

    Prophets & Writings are 2 sections of Old testaments. For example, Prophets are supposed to be inspiration from G-d After Torah, Writings Not, only what the authors thought. For example, Psalms of David is writing, so, it is not prophecy, but Book of Ezekiel is..

    Thanks!

    The Bible wasn't "written". It was compiled by the bishops of the Catholic Church at the direction of the Pope, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, in the 4'th Century, from early Catholic and Jewish writings. They studied, discerned, and prayed about hundreds of different writings for 6 years before finalizing the 73 texts the Holy Spirit had guided them to choose. We know that these 73 texts are the inspired Word of God because Jesus Christ, God, promised the leaders of the one Church He founded "The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth", and Whatsoever you bind upon Earth is bound in Heaven", and He who hears you hears Me".
