How Shall We Regard the Bible

A criticism of our teaching on the inerrancy and authority of the Bible is that we first must somehow convince people of the Bible’s authority and only then can the Gospel of forgiveness in Christ be shared and believed. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. The message of damnable sin and complete forgiveness in the cross and resurrection of Jesus creates faith in Jesus. Such faith recognizes the voice of the Good Shepherd in the Scriptures: “My sheep hear my voice. I know them and they follow me” (John 10:27).

As sheep precious to the Savior, we recognize the Bible to be what Jesus did: the very Word of God. “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son” (Heb. 1:1).
