Title: Introduction to the Bible

Introduction to the Bible
  • And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of
    making many books there is no end, and much study
    is wearisome to the flesh. Ecclesiastes 1212

Its Origin
  • Inspired by God
  • All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,
    and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
    correction, for instruction in righteousness.
    2 Timothy 316

Its Origin
  • However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come,
    He will guide you into all truth for He will not
    speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears
    He will speak and He will tell you things to
    come. John 1613
  • Holy Spirit guided

Its Origin
  • Knowing this first, that no prophecy of
    Scripture is of any private interpretation, for
    prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy
    men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy
    Spirit. 2 Peter 120,21
  • Holy men wrote

Its Origin
  • Revealed mind of God
  • But God has revealed them to us through His
    Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes,
    the deep things of God. 1
    Corinthians 210

Answers the Questions of Life
  • Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image,
    according to Our likeness let them have dominion
    over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the
    air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and
    over every creeping thing that creeps on the
    earth. Genesis 126
  • About the origin of life

  • Where am I going?
  • And as it is appointed for men to die once, but
    after this the judgment. Hebrews 927

  • Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I
    might not sin against You! Psalm 11911

Its Purpose
  • Lights our way
  • Through Your precepts I get understanding
    therefore I hate every false way.
  • Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to
    my path. Psalm 119104,105

Its Purpose
  • Enlightens us
  • And that from childhood you have known the Holy
    Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for
    salvation through faith which is in Christ
    Jesus. 2 Timothy 315

Its Purpose

Its Purpose

    indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the

  • Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow
    of wickedness, and receive with meekness the
    implanted word, which is able to save your
    souls. James 121

Its Completeness
  • All truth
  • However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come,
    He will guide you into all truth for He will not
    speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears
    He will speak and He will tell you things to
    come. John 1613

Its Completeness
  • All things
  • As His divine power has given to us all things
    that pertain to life and godliness, through the
    knowledge of Him who called us by glory and
    virtue. 2 Peter 13

Its Completeness
  • Whole counsel
  • For I have not shunned to declare to you the
    whole counsel of God.
    Acts 2027

Its Indestructibility
  • Lasts forever
  • Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words
    will by no means pass away.
    Matthew 2435

The Bible Contains
  • Gods mind
  • For what man knows the things of a man except
    the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no
    one knows the things of God except the Spirit of
    God. 1 Corinthians 211

The Bible Contains
  • State of man

    of God For the wages of sin is death, but the
    gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our
    Lord. Romans 323 623

The Bible Contains
  • Way of salvation
  • Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and
    the life. No one comes to the Father except
    through Me. John 146

  • He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and
    whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
    Proverbs 1620

    2 Thessalonians 18

The Bible Contains
  • The hope of the whole world
  • That having been justified by His grace we
    should become heirs according to the hope of
    eternal life. Titus 37

The Bible Warns
  • For I testify to everyone who hears the words of
    the prophecy of this book If anyone adds to
    these things, God will add to him the plagues
    that are written in this book and if anyone
    takes away from the words of the book of this
    prophecy, God shall take away his part from the
    Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the
    things which are written in this book.
    Revelation 2218,19
  • Do not add to or subtract from

The Bible Warns
  • Do not substitute human wisdom
  • And in vain they worship Me, teaching as
    doctrines the commandments of men. For laying
    aside the commandment of God, you hold the
    tradition of men... Mark

The Bible Warns
  • Preach and teach only Gods word
  • Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of
    season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all
    longsuffering and teaching.
    2 Timothy 42

The Bible Warns
  • Believe no other gospel
  • But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach
    any other gospel to you than what we have
    preached to you, let him be accursed.
    Galatians 18

The Bible Warns
  • His word will judge us
  • He who rejects Me, and does not receive My
    words, has that which judges him--the word that I
    have spoken will judge him in the last day.
    John 1248

Concluding Thoughts
  • Study the Bible daily!
  • These were more fair-minded than those in
    Thessalonica, in that they received the word with
    all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily
    to find out whether these things were so.
    Acts 1711
  • Rightfully divide the Word of Truth
  • Be diligent to present yourself approved to God,
    a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly
    dividing the word of truth.
    2 Timothy 215
