The Bible - God's Holy Word

When we refer to “the Scripture(s)”, we refer only to the Old and New Testament texts of the Bible. It alone is the Word of God because it is “God-breathed” or divinely “inspired” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ). Saying we believe the Bible because it claims to be inspired might sound like circular logic, however, we base this belief on the witness of the resurrected Jesus, whose bodily resurrection is as verifiable as any event that happened in ancient history. If Jesus’ bodily resurrection verifies His claim to be God, then we must take very seriously God’s high view of the authority of Scripture.
