The Bible is "God's Word" because the Bible tells us that it is God's Word and since God wrote it or inspired it, He should know. How do we know this? Because God told us? How do we know God exists? Because God said in His Word that He does. A continuous circle which goes nowhere.
You and billions of others are making the assumption that God exists, and therefore all the rest follows. However billions of people in the world do not believe that God of Abraham exists, so they don't agree with the above interpretation, plus many people who formerly believed that God exists, or at least were raised to believe that, have changed their minds, and now do not believe that, some based on things we have discovered which contradicts "God's Word".
We think Jesus did exist, as a 100% human, but as to his existing as God or as the Son of God, we have zero proof of that. We are trusting a book which has been proved to be full of untruths, though no one yet has completely proved that 100% of it is untruths.
The very fact that we have thousands of denominations of Christians, and similar amounts of Muslims, and fewer of Jews that all believe that a God exists, but they have many factions in each of these beliefs which don't agree on the details, along with the fact that it is still 'people believe' rather than people actually know that God exists, which proves that no one knows that God exists.
As far as other kings etc through history, yes likely most of these people did exist and we have some of the families which they came from still exist today to attest to the fact that there is now such a family so likely there was before. We have no known family members of Jesus, that has ever claimed to be from his lineage.
The history of the various kings etc., as to exact specific details would have to not all be 100% because many factors come into play, such as history is usually written by the victors of any particular war, so we will get an opinion, or even a manufactured lie, to make people think that events happened a certain way, for political reasons, or personal reasons of the people who published, wrote or ordered written those books.
Also it would be impossible to have reporters at every event that occurred in our history books so that we would have an unbiased account. Even if we tell a story which happened to us personally, we will change details every time we tell it, not purposely but because that is how a human mind works. Also each person at an event will have a different view and report of what they saw.
Take the Boston Bombing. If you saw only the first reports coming out, and then never saw the most recent events, you would have an entirely different story to tell, than you would if you have read the most recent reports..
I can understand what you are writting.
The bible has many writters in old testament written in different times also the new testament. All these letters have been put together to form a book.
Your arguement to prove God is already in display when we look at all creation.
If that isnt enough then we have history and science that prove God's existance. Then you have the other side that try to prove God doesnt exist but their theories don't completely add up since there theories are based on assumptions!!
Paul made it clear that we should live by FAITH until Jesus returns! The bible makes it clear we are to work it out ourselves by seeking.
If you really are seeking truth start to know Jesus better since He is alive, and read the bible and try and find a church that suits you.
You didnt answer my question, where do you believe humans came from and what happens to our soul when we die ???

Thomas book is not written by Thomas, He wasn't alive in 100AD since John was the youngest and the last one to die from the apostles around that time.
Different Scholars have opinions too. Doesn't make them God truth !
GoThomas is invalid !
.. OK, John died before Thomas. How does the affect the Gospels ??..

.. look, GoJohn provided a foundation for a unified church, which Thomas, with its emphasis on each person's search for God, did not. Even its first generation of readers disagreed about whether John was a true or false gospel. Then there was the question of whether to even include John in the New Testament ..

.. have you even read GoThomas or any of the historical background of the time ??..

Actually we have long been able to describe exactly where an apple seed comes from though we do not know yet where the very first apple seed or apple tree came from, or exactly what makes things act as they do. The lack of that knowledge though has led to myths of invisible gods, but it definitely has not proved the existence of any particular god, nor that an invisible entity had to be involved.
Yes apple seeds do come from apple as God designed it workout when He created them !

Who programmed the seed to sprout to life when outside conditions are perfect?? That is sun, soil, water, etc.

Who programmed the roots to go down and stem to go up??

Who programmed the tree to grow then grow fruit or flower and when the it dies to reproduce many more seeds to start the cycle??

Who grammed each tree to produce only it own kind??

Who created a seed to be a factory of life ??

If you cant see God in all that, well I suppose God gave everyone free choices.

You can write a GoThomas, that doesnt mean it is valid in 1000 years.

The first generations knew GoJohn was true and his other letters! Your talking about the book of revelation was debated if it should be included in the bible. It was decided to be included to warn future generations.

Since GoThomas is invalid, impossoble to be written by Thomas, Im not interested to read it.

Moron.
Show me where I ... oh never mind.
You were the one claiming Caesar was real because he appeared on Roman coins.

I showed a bunch of Roman coins with lots of Roman deities on them.

Thus you must believe them to be real as well.

Unless you are just a pitiful liar.

Why do you think that?
What about Enoch?
What about Jubilees?
Is all of history before the admission of Constantine and the following councils in err?
Is Pi incorrect? That was established long before the OT!
If it is we had better establish a completely new system of mathematics and science.
Now can you say any writing of the time is in err or false for that matter---without calling your own accepted "book" into question?

I'm just touching on the very peak of the iceberg here.

Enlighten me as to why I should be bias in favor of the accepted canon.

Good analogy, except that the alcoholics know that they are just getting by, and don't pretend to be morally superior or have access to a greater truth than nonalcoholics.
