  • Yes, they were telling you that to make it sound cool. lol the acronyms were made up much later by someone being clever, lol. The word comes form latin and greek words meaning book, scroll etc.

  • Bible comes from the Egyptian word for parchment, byblos. The Greek word biblios means books or scrolls. Later, it was translated into Latin, biblia, meaning "book." The Bible is more than a single book. It is a library--ta biblia, which means "the books."

  • I already said what it means and bradenlsmyson just gave a bit more in depth explanation. It means book or books - because the Bible is a collection of books.

    This is what it really means the others are from people that were bored and made up acronyms for it.

  • That isn't what bible actually means or why it was named that though...it was just something clever someone came up with later.
