Note: We have to realize that this argument of mine comes along with spiritual and literal explanations from the Bible (reliable diff.translations) back up by facts evidence whatever it is.
First if you are a believer of the Book we have to realize that the Bible is an inspiration of God (2Tim.3:16) whether if it is invisible or not.
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,"
I will show some evidence of how authentic the Bible is.

1.Some visible evidence facts that are proven that the bible is authentic is found in Mark 12:15-17 it says;
15 Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why do you test Me? Bring Me a denarius that I may see it."
16 So they brought it. And He said to them, "Whose image and inscription is this?" They said to Him, "Caesar's."
17 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they marveled at Him.

I know this one, that there will be nobody (believers) will dare  to disagree with me (except for Con to be specific ) that it is already proven true. When the said Denarius was discovered by the archaeologist. Learn more about this to this following link;  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denarius , http://www.historian.net/coins.htm and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEzUWDMt3fg . Meaning, that one of the factors for we be able to know  the authenticity of this Book is the PHYSICAL EVIDENCE itself.

2. Here is another persona mistakenly believe that never existed at all by the historian earlier is the one that says in Isaiah 20:1..
1 In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and took it,2 at the same time the Lord spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, "Go, and remove the sackcloth from your body, and take your sandals off your feet." And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.3 Then the Lord said, "Just as My servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Egypt and Ethiopia,4 so shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians as prisoners and the Ethiopians as captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.5 Then they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation and Egypt their glory.6 And the inhabitant of this territory will say in that day, 'Surely such is our expectation, wherever we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria; and how shall we escape?' "
 Many skeptics says earlier that this King is not existed at all in the line of Kings of Assyrian empire. However in 1853 when Paul Emile Botta French Archaeologist discovered one of the archaeological remains that bearing the name of King Sargon of Assyria ( learn more of this facts evidence in this link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul-%C3%89mile_Botta , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1uR2FC1gHs , http://www.biblehistory.net/newsletter/sargon.htm . ) that come up to the conclusion that when it comes to history Bible is also reliable. 

Now when it comes to exploring accepted informations  that is reliable to do and to believe in, the Bible is always up to date. Like "The wonders of Honey" that is written in Proverb 24:13 says;  "13My son, eat honey because it is good, And the honeycomb which is sweet to your taste;"  Honey also appears in Genesis 43;11, Revelation 10:10, and at Exodus 23:25 that states Honey is a good sweetener. and according to reliable discovery that this God made sweetener is best natural sweetener. Goes along with, it helps in the production of hormones, antibodies, enzymes and tissues which are essential for a healthy body. Therefore Bible also reliable for Healthy living. 

Now, let us talk about Moral, the Scripture says "'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "Matthew 19:19, this one is good and every loving person doing this law. So when it comes to morality the make sense of the bible is explainable unless you saw a verse that contradict in this statement. Which is I was told earlier "Let the Bible speak itself", our job is to seek and research to found out the authenticity of the Bible.
