If John wrote Revelation, and Paul wrote most of the Epistles, who wrote the Book of Love? Pat, ND
What a great question! Pat, your Biblical knowledge is acute. John is believed to be the author of the Book of Revelation. As you might recall, I am finishing up a class on Johannine Literature, which studied his Gospel and Revelation in depth. It was excellent! Sorry for the advertisement!
Paul is the author of most of the epistles. Coincidentally my next class is Pauline Literature. What are the chances! (Pretty great considering I choose when to answer your questions.)
The Book of Love? Well by that I assume you mean the Bible. I mean it is a love story from start to finish. God’s love is evident from “In the beginning” to “It is finished.” If you want to read a great love story that stands the test of time, this is it. If you want to read about a man who loves his Bride enough to die for her, this is it. If you want to read about the ultimate “happily ever after”, this is it.
So I think you are asking me, “Who wrote the Bible?” The answer is….God. God inspired human authors to record His message. The authors were able to use their own skills and talents, but the message belongs to God.
The Monotones had it right:
It was someone from above who wrote it. And it goes a little something like this:
In the beginning God tells us He loves us
He invites us to live in paradise where we will never be apart from Him
He shows us the meaning of romance by offering us everything we truly need
We break up with Him…through sin.
But He always gives us just one more chance.
That is who wrote THE book of love.
