You could say that. There were many texts and scriptures that were in use prior to the final choosing of canonical texts that most regard today as the Bible.<quoted text>
Like when the church played "pick&choose" about which books to include in the Buybull?
People who try to say that Scripture is the "Word of God" have not been properly taught. However, this view of scripture has become so old and traditional in many lines of Christianity that it has become openly accepted and vehemently defended.
Jesus said, ""The Pharisees and the scholars have taken the keys of knowledge and have hidden them. They have not entered nor have they allowed those who want to enter to do so." It is true.
The first reference to the active components of Creation are sound and Light and are in the Hebrew Creation story. This story is much older than the written versions.
Day One: the Breath of God moves through the depths of the uncreated, the waters, in a primary sound - vibration - which is also Light and consciousness.
In fact, this is exactly what the modern physicist believes happened. Space and time and commensurate consciousness are a matter of relative vibration, fundamental to all subatomic existence. This is where it begins. The "Word" is an attempt to define or describe the point of conscious existence through which you and I and all else is and are created, single and plural.
Scripture, defined or described as the "Word of God" is an attempt to place a set of authority beyond argument. But, the realization is that any attempt to put "God" and the authority of "God" into writing is a futile, finite, human mockery of the Infinite which is beyond comprehension. That Infinite-beyond-comprehension reality, which is even beyond vibration is the One Whose Name Cannot Be Spoken. This is why the Hebrews regard the Name of God to be unspeakable, as a matter of fearful respect and truth.
It is the Breath, the Spirit, that powers vibration. And it is the setting in which limitless power exists, beyond space and time, both of which are the products of vibration, node and anode, at every level.
