  • The question of authority is pertinent

  • Is it what it claims to be -- THE WORD OF

Bible Inspiration
  • Infidelity prevails in many churches in our
    land not infidelity in its broadest sense, an
    open denial of the Bible, but an infidelity that
    is robed in the garb of Christianity, while it is
    undermining faith in the Bible as a revelation
    from God Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 166.
  • Naturally this has its influence on our
    thinking. We need to know for ourselves what the

1 BI Bible Inspiration
  • The Bible is a revelation from God.
  • Thessalonians 213
  • For this reason we also thank God without
    ceasing, because when you received the word of
    God which you heard of us, you welcomed it not as
    the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word
    of God, which also effectually works in you who
  • What is the claim the Bible puts forth?

  • Proverbs 2217-21
  • 17 Incline your ear, and hear the words of
    the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge

3 BI Bible Inspiration
  • 18 - For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them
    within you Let them all be fixed upon your lips,
  • 19 So that your trust may be in the LORD, I
    have instructed you today, even you.
  • 20 - Have I not written to you excellent things
    Of counsels and knowledge,

3 BI Bible Inspiration
  • 21 - That I may make you know the certainty of
    the words of truth, That you may answer words of
    truth to those who send to you?
  • What was Gods purpose in giving us the Bible?

4 BI Bible Inspiration
  • How much of the Bible is Gods Word?
  • 2 Timothy 316,17
  • 16 - All scripture is given by inspiration of
    God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
    for correction, for instruction in righteousness
  • 17 - That the man of God may be complete,
    thoroughly equipped for every good work.

5 BI Bible Inspiration
  • How does the Bible describe inspiration?
  • Hebrews 11,2
  • 1 - God, who at various times and in various ways
    spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,

5 BI Bible Inspiration
  • 2 - has in these last days spoken to us by his
    Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things,
    through whom also He made the worlds
  • The Bible comprises the writings of the prophets
    and the words of Jesus.

6 BI Bible Inspiration
  • What example is given of this inspired process?
  • Revelation 11
  • The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave
    Him, to show His servants -- things which must
    shortly take place. And He sent and signified it
    by His angel unto His servant John,

7 BI Bible Inspiration
  • Is the prophet like a stenographer taking
    dictation from God?
  • 2 Peter 121
  • for prophecy never came by the will of man but
    holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the
    Holy Spirit.
  • They spoke using their own words as they were
    impressed by the Holy Spirit.

8 BI Bible Inspiration
  • Is the message a product of mans mind, or of
    Gods mind?
  • Galatians 111,12
  • But I make known to you, brethren, that the
    gospel which was preached by me is not according
    to man, For I neither received it from man, nor
    was I taught it, but through the revelation of
    Jesus Christ.

9 BI Bible Inspiration
  • Would God give the Bible as a guide to man and
    then permit it to become unreliable? It would
    not seem reasonable that He would.
  • How does God assure us of the eternal nature of
    the Word?
  • 1 Peter 123-25

9 BI Bible Inspiration
  • 23 Having been born again, not of corruptible
    seed but of incorruptible, through the word of
    God, which lives and abides forever,
  • 24 because All flesh is as grass, And all the
    glory of man as the flower of the grass. The
    grass withers, And the flower falls away,

  • 25 But the word of the Lord endures
  • Now this is the word which by the gospel was
    preached to you.
  • How long is the Word to endure?

10 BI Bible Inspiration
  • Can we be sure that the Bible is not adulterated
    with human ideas? The Hebrew word for PURE is
    REFINED. This is significant in the divine
    process. Human works, books, texts, etc., have
    to be revised every ten years to bring them up to
    date with investigation but the Bible is revised
    just the opposite--

10 BI Bible Inspiration
  • to bring it more into harmony with the original
  • Proverbs 305
  • Every word of God is pure He is a shield to
    those who put their trust in Him.

  • What satisfaction should Gods care in the
    preservation of His Word give to us?
  • Psalm 119140
  • Your word is very pure Therefore Your servant
    loves it.
  • The Bible is scientifically correct. Less than
    one one thousandth of the text has yet to be

12 BI Bible Inspiration
  • When did God begin to protect and preserve His
  • Psalm 119160
  • The entirety of Your word is truth. And every
    one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

13 BI Bible Inspiration
  • How does God describe the process used to
    preserve His Word?
  • Psalm 126
  • The words of the Lord are pure words, Like silver
    tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven
  • Seven is a symbol of perfection.

14 BI Bible Inspiration
  • What assurance does God give us that he will
    never let His Word become diluted with human
  • Psalms 127
  • You shall keep them, O Lord, You shall preserve
    them from this generation forever.

15 BI Bible Inspiration
  • Did Jesus expect us to have confidence in the
  • John 539
  • You search the scriptures, for in them you think
    you have eternal life and these are they which
    testify of Me.
  • The Bible tells us about Jesus.

16 BI Bible Inspiration
