Christianity is a revealed religion and the Bible is God’s revelation to mankind.  Without it we would have little knowledge of who God is, what he is like, or how we can come to know him.  

The Bible makes some remarkable claims for itself. 

  • It tells us that the Lord has a very special regard for the person who has a special regard for his Word (Psalm 1; Isaiah 66:2cp Psalm 119:120)
  • God’s eternal purposes in the world throughout its history are accomplished by his Word (Isaiah 55:11)
  • The world and all that is in the world will disappear, but the Word of the Lord will remain forever (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 1 Peter 1:23-25)

It is important, therefore, that we have the right attitude towards the Bible and know as much about it as we possibly can.

  • where did it come from?
  • when and how was it written?
  • how did it come to be in its present form?
  • how do we know that the content has been reliably transmitted to us?
