How do you prove the validity of the Bible?

I've always believed in the bible because I grew up in a christian household and going to church. I've had a few people in my life ask me how I can prove the bible to be true, but I get stumped with this every time. I've always felt embarrassed to ask this because it seems so basic, but it'd be nice to know this for my faith to strengthen. Any thoughts?

I think, first off, it depends on where they're coming from.

Are they there to listen and are open or are they trying to justify why they don't want to believe in Christianity? If it's the latter, no matter what you share, you're going to have trouble.

If it is the former, then you should at least listen to see what objections they have about the Bible.

That's a very good point. The intention of the question definitely does matter. Thanks for the insight!

I have that question sometimes to. But I remember a very wise explanation that they Bible is not just a historical book, but what’s recorded inside also applies today and that’s how we can that the words are alive and this is definitely not a book from mankind
