Was there a bible when Jesus walked the earth?

If so, do you think he made adjustments (like King James, etc).

If not, how did he quote scripture to the Devil on the mountain top?

  • I do not believe so. I believe the bible was written about accounts of the times and of Jesus life by different people. Since Jesus was the God-child he was able to quote the word of God.

  • He had what we call the Old Testament. He was teaching in the temple at age 12 so he was very knowledgeable.

  • The OT was in existence. The NT was written after his crucifixion. ;)

  • There were scriptures/lessons/prayers, etc coming from ancestors/historians/seers/prophets,etc from hundreds of years prior to his Earthly walk. ..just like we have today, things that educators, for example, use to teach from history. Not really a stretch.

  • Jesus IS THE WORD.

    John 1: 1 in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God.

    it is written
    (means it is Jesus speaking about the bible having been already written in the future plans of God himself,
    since Jesus is the word and the word was with God, and he was the son of God.

  • No there wasn't a Bible, but there were scrolls that contained what we now call the Old Testament as a previous poster said...He began studying at age 12 and was in His 30s when He was tempted by the devil in the wilderness so He knew the Word very well by then...

  • I gotta agree with all the answers previously given. Not to mention, being God's Son, He was also given inspiration by God.

  • 1. The Old Testement was what they read from books such as Isaiah : here is a scripture to proof this : Luke 4:14And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through all the surrounding district.15And He began teaching in their synagogues and was praised by all.16And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read.17And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,18"THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND,TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, 19TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."

  • 2. Jesus Is the Word, He is the Son of God and KNEW the Word from the beginning. During the time He was on the earth He was living in OT times. It was not until a while after His death the testimonies were written.

  • OT Scripture existed, but obviously not in the collection that Christians carry around today. It was Jewish tradition to memorize the Scripture from the OT. If you paid any attention to the Scripture Christ quotes to Satan, it's ALL from the OT.
