What is the Bible? Where did we get it from? Why do we need the Bible?
In this series, we answer these questions and more. There is nothing more foundational to the Christian life than understanding what the Bible teaches about itself and how to read and study it.
In the first lesson of this series, we learn about where the Bible came from. Ultimately, the Bible came from God. He is the source and author of Scripture.
Have you ever wondered if the Bible is really able to help you with your deepest problems? Have you ever desired a specific “word from the Lord?” Maybe for a job, relationship, big life decision? These questions are concerned with the sufficiency of Scripture.
The clarity of Scripture means every believer can read and study the Bible on their own and benefit. In this article, we explore what this means for our reading and studying of the Bible.
What kind of authority does the Bible have? And how does it get its authority?
To say that the Bible is authoritative is to say that it holds the final word; not science, human experience, or human reasoning. Scripture always has the final word.
The Bible is necessary to know God, salvation, and how to live a holy life. We need God’s word for all of life. We cannot live without God’s word. Jesus said in Matthew 4:4, “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Jesus needed and we need to use the Bible to live life.
Because God is true therefore His Word is true. And because His Word is true it makes good on its claims. It is without error. We can trust the Bible. In this article, we explore the reality that Scripture is true.
In this article, we are going to go through a three-step process to help you read, study, and apply the Bible. Be sure to stick around to the end of this lesson where I’ll share with you a free resource that will help you get the most out of your Bible study.
