14. How does the Urantia Book compare to the Bible?

ANSWER #1: The Urantia Book can actually clarify and enhance many of the vague and difficult concepts of the Bible as well as other sacred texts. The Bible, like all literature, is subject to interpretation and The Urantia Book can help tremendously with this because it fills in many of the gaps. For example, the Bible does not explain the one-time existence of the many different types of dinosaurs, nor the long geophysical evolution of this planet. It does not explain the long evolution of the human species nor the many civilizations that have existed on this world. It does not explain how Cain, if he were a child of the first humans on earth, could find a wife in “the land of Nod.” It never mentions what happened to Joseph, the father of Jesus, nor does it give any details regarding the diversity of material and spiritual life that exists in the cosmos.

Although the Bible is a wonderful repository of spiritual truths recorded over the ages, it is by no means an end of God’s instruction to humankind, and neither, for that matter, is the Urantia Book.

“But no revelation short of the attainment of the Universal Father can ever be complete.” (The Urantia Book, Page 1008, 92:4.9)
