Jehovah's Witnesses base all of their beliefs on the Bible, as interpreted by the Governing Body.In fact, they claim that “Jehovah’s witnesses have a history almost 6, years long, beginning while the first man, Adam, was still alive,” that Adam’s son Abel was “the first of an unbroken line of Witnesses,” and that “Jesus’ disciples were all Jehovah’s witnesses too.” (Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Divine Purpose, pg.
