Inspiration of the Bible God's disclosure is just as legitimate as the recording devise: motivation promises it Def: "The Spirit's superintending over the scholars so that while composing as indicated by their own styles and identities, the outcome was God's Word composed—definitive, reliable, free from mistake in the first signatures" Study of the Bible

Slide 15

Necessary components of Inspiration Divine component — God the Spirit superintended essayists, guaranteeing precision Human components — composed by styles, vocabulary and identities Result of Divine - human creation—a record of God's truth without blunder Extent of motivation — reaches out to the determination of every word by the writers without transcription Limitation — stretches out to the first compositions just Study of the Bible

In spite of the fact that creators recorded God's announcements to them, singular styles invalidate this hypothesis Study of the Bible

Slide 19

More False Views Neo-standard feeling — the Bible is not equivalent to the Word of God, since God doesn't talk in simple suggestions. He doesn't uncover actualities about Himself, yet uncovers Himself . The Bible turns into the Word of God, when the peruser subjectively experiences Christ. Investigation of the Bible

Christ's perspective of the Bible Inspiration of the entire—Mat 5:17-18, not even the littlest letter would go without being satisfied Luke 24:44, All things composed of Him in Moses and prophets must be satisfied John 10:35, "Sacred writings can't be broken" Inspiration of the parts—Frequent quotes from OT (Mt 4:4,7,10) as enlivened Inspiration of the words—Mt 22:44, Messiah not a political deliverer, but rather divine by accentuation on "My" Inspiration of the New Testament— Jn 14:26 guarantee of review for later written work Inspiration of the letters—Mt 5:18, Not a "scribble or
