What is the Bible About?

Updated on February 23, 2015

The Canon of the Scripture is Complete

As sixty-six books, the Bible is complete and no part of it is missing (Psalm 119:89).

  • Authoritative

The Bible is the Word of God, just as it claims to be (Isaiah 2:3, Micah 2:4) and it carries the weight of the authority of God (Ezekiel 12:28).

  • Affirmed by the Other Scriptures

The Old Testament is affirmed by Jesus Himself (Matthew 4:4, Luke 20:42, Luke 24:44), and the Apostles in the New Testament (Rom. 9:17, I Tim. 5:18, ).

The Bible to be Inspired by God and Totally Inerrant

  • Completely Inerrant and Inspired by the Spirit

Each word, though physically penned by a man (II Thess. 3:17) was done by the inspiration of the Spirit of God. The Inspiring Spirit used each author’s vocabulary and style, but the Bible is still “the Word of God,” and to be accepted as such (II Samuel 23:2, Ezekiel 2:2). The Bible is without fault in all it supports (Psalm 119:128). Though it may record a lie or false concept (Genesis 3:4) for the purpose of teaching, any idea that is presented as the truth is the truth (I Timothy 2:7).

  • Historically and Scientifically Accurate

No occurrence or miracle to be beyond God’s capability to perform (Deuteronomy 11:12, Joshua 10:12), thus every event recorded in the Scripture and presented as history was an actual historic event.

The Bible is Sufficient

The Bible is the final authority for all matters and is absolutely sufficient for leading a godly life (Joshua 1:8-9, Psalm 37:31, Psalm 119:11). It is to be used for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction and its truths are to be diligently handed down from one generation to the next (Deuteronomy 4:10, Psalm 19:7).

The Bible is Illuminated by the Holy Spirit

As a believer studies the Bible, the passages will be illuminated to him by the Holy Spirit that dwells within Him (Psalm 119:18). The Spirit never guide a believer in a manner contrary to the truths presented in Scripture (John 16:13).
