It is estimated between Adam and Moses when the Torah; the first five books of the bible was written is close to 3000 years. This would be the beginning of the “written Word” inspired by God. Now, we have to remember the books from Genesis to Deuteronomy covers a lot of time from creation to giving of the Ten Commandments and the arrival into the promise land. It is calculated that twenty-six generations came before Moses. So how did all these people live without the bible? Like most cultures even today without basic writing documentation; their history was passed down through successive generations by storytellers. This in itself is a feat compounded by thousands of years. We as believers have to come to the conclusion this could not be accomplished without the intervention of God through the Holy Spirit. Yes, the Spirit existed prior to Pentecost, just as the Word (Jesus) prior to any formal written word of the bible – Gen. 1:2; Jn. 1:1.
