“No prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:20-21).

That the biblical writers were moved by the Holy Spirit means they were inspired to action. One of the more compelling arguments for the veracity of the sacred text is the resulting nuances of each Gospel account, and every epistle, as each inspired author wrote out of the varied contextual milieu of their own lives. While unbelievers would point to these differing perspectives on the teachings of Jesus as an argument against the credibility of Scripture, would not a greater question of credibility be raised if each one were a verbatim read? Imagine the conspiratorial effort it would take to accomplish such a task.
