What is the Bible?

The paradox about the Bible is that even those who choose her as the basis of the philosophy that guides their life do not fully grasp her. That is because she has been introduced to us by someone who holds a certain vantage point of view of her based on Catholicism or Protestantism. I leave out Judaism because those who hold to Judaism without Jesus are not involved or interested in preaching Judaism to the world. That is also a paradox because the God of Judaism would love that its curator spreads her universal principles to whomever is interested to abide her principles (Isaiah 56).
Those who never touch the Bible hold anecdotal opinions about her content which are based on tangible differing reactions to her by the Catholic and Protestant groups. What we must know about the Bible is that even her curators, the Jews, could not fully abide by her principles, and from the get-go. That implies that you may not either look at the behavior of her curator to adopt or reject her as a guiding behavorial reference. That also implies that you may not look at the behavior of Catholics and Protestants to adopt or reject her.
Even though it is my intention to tell you what the Bible is all about, more importantly, it is your duty to personally go over her pages because in the end you are personally responsible for your own deeds in front of her Author. You just may not trust any one who is telling you about what she requires of you. In fact, even when you know what she requires of you, there is a Master Power who can tarnish your knowledge to make you behave otherwise. That is how our tragedy on earth started, according to her narrative. God lays out a principle and the ultimate Master Power of deception succeeded in eliciting a contrary behavior to God's principles, even though you recite verbatim the principle established by God. It started with the most pure original iteration of Human Intelligence (HI) who was taken from the original who could assign a name to every single thing that was presented to him.
The perennial tactic that has been used to elicit a disobeying behavior is pretty simple: how do know for sure? The Master Power of deception avoided to go to the original eyewitness to inject his fatal viral concoction of doubt.
The New Testament portion of the Bible contains warnings that the Master Power of deception is disguised out there as a Messenger of light to catch the whole human race, unless we let God intervenes to protect and rescue us from his net of eternal damnation.
Because he is disguised as a Messenger of light we may be fooled easily. To be vigilant, our only weapon is the simple knowledge of the Bible which states in simple terms what kind of behavior God expects from every single human heart of the past, today, and tomorrow.
I might have already told you what the Bible is all about in all this rambling rant against biblical deception.

a choice between life and death

Through Moses, at the Exodus, YHWH God spoke and, then, wrote His main principles with His own finger (Exodus 31:18; 32:16;34:1). He did not leave that task to Moses. The fact that YHWH God felt it important to repeatedly write His own will with His own finger should impress each heart and mind to the  hinted significance of the ten commandments. YHWH God fashioned man and He even incarnated to rescue man to demontrate how man is important to Him. As to will that He spoke, wrote with His finger, He declared that it is easier for the earth and heaven to vanish than anything in the records of His will to change or be abolished.
Later, He made it clear that it is about a choice. A choice between life and death (Deuteronomy 30:19-20), of which the foundational principles are graven with His own finger.

(Deuteronomy 30:19 LITV)
I call Heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, that you may live, you and your seed,

God told the Israelites that His will is not hidden but within their reach (verse 11 -13), even within their hearts. They just had to choose, as it has become our choice in our generation (Isaiah 2:3).

Deuteronomy 30:11-16 LEB
(11)  "For this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too wonderful for you, and it is not too far from you.
(12)  It is not in the heavens so that you might say, 'Who will go up for us to the heavens and get it for us and cause us to hear it, so that we may do it?'
(13)  And it is not beyond the sea, so that you might say, 'Who will cross for us to the other side of the sea and take it for us and cause us to hear it, so that we may do it?'
(14)  But the word is very near you, even in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may do it.
(15)  "See, I am setting before you today life and prosperity and death and disaster;
(16)  what I am commanding you today is to love Yahweh your God by going in his ways and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his regulations, and then you will live, and you will become numerous, and Yahweh your God will bless you in the land where you are going.

Still, what is the Bible all about? The Bible contains the will of God in the form of regulations that man has to respect and put in practice. 

Are those regulations a function of interpretation?

In discussing the Bible with others, you often hear, when they disagree with what you are witnessing to them, that they say 'it is your opinion'. But, Deuteronomy 30 does not hint that the will of God is subject to interpretation.

For example, can the 10 commandments which were spoken to all and then written down, be intepreted by each individual to convey to each a different meaning?  'Thou shall not have other gods'. How can that be subject to interpretation?  Logically, the Bible cannot  be subject to personal interpretation because God put His word into our respective heart. Each heart then speaks the same word of God in unison, unless our heart has been compromised.
From the foregoing, when you read the will of God in the Bible, it will naturally synchronise with your mindset and you will accept it effortlessly because it has not been adulterated in your heart. 

Some claim that God gave the Bible  to the Jews only, among other false reasonings,  and, thus, the Bible does not concern them. However, listen to Deuteronomy 32:1 calling on heavens and the whole earth to pay attention.

"Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak, and let the earth hear the words of my mouth. Deuteronomy 32:1 LEB

The will of God though transmitted through Moses was meant for the whole world as evidenced by Deuteronomy 32:1 and by God's disapproval of the pagan nations as the ones the Israelites were to supplant in Canaan.

God kept watch on His word by sending various Prophets to warn of apostasy and the preset consequences recorded in Moses. As the same word came to us today, it will be uncovered in our hearts by listening (Deuteronomy 32:1). Would or had God have brought forth another Moses? 

Even Jesus who spoke to Moses declared that Moses is eternal in Matthew 5:17-18. Therefore, the Bible is a record of God's will for the whole earth including you, unless you want to choose death (Exodus 30:19-20; Isaiah 34).
