 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Lesson 6:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Word-Filled Life  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Developing the Mind of Christ  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Introduction  ;  ;  ; ; The Bible is the Christianæ;s resource book, his manual for living, the light to his path, and the index for faith and  ;  ;  ; ; practice. The Bible is Godæ;s Wordù;His special revelation by which man is to cleanse and direct his way. As  ;  ;  ; ; Godæ;s revelation to man, it teaches man things he absolutely cannot learn about life and death apart from this  ;  ;  ; ; very special revelation as Paul [INVALID]s in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 but just as it is written, ô;Things which eye has not seen and ear  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; prepared for those who love Him.ö; 10 For to us God revealed them through the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 119:9-11 How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; to Thy word. 10 With all my heart I have sought Thee; Do not let me wander from  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Thy commandments. 11 Thy word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; against Thee.  ;  ;  ; ; This revelation includes things such as the truth about God as a triunity or trinity (His essence, character,  ;  ;  ; ; purposes, and plan); things about man (his origin, make up, fall, sin, and need); about the physical world and  ;  ;  ; ; its true origin as the creation of the Creator and its future redemption; about Satan and the forces of evil in the  ;  ;  ; ; world; about Godæ;s plan of salvation for man through faith in the person and work of His Son, Jesus Christ  ;  ;  ; ; (salvation from sinæ;s penalty, power, and one day from its presence); the person and ministry of the Holy  ;  ;  ; ; Spirit; and about things to come. Because of manæ;s finite limitations, his natural spiritual blindness, and his  ;  ;  ; ; spiritual condition in sin, the Bible is (as the late Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer wrote) a book that man could not  ;  ;  ; ; write if he would and would not write if he could.  ;  ;  ; ; Because of what it is and does, the Bible is the most important book of the Christianæ;s life. Note the following  ;  ;  ; ; sampling of verses:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Matthew 5:18-19 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished. 19  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 that the man of God may be  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; adequate, equipped for every good work.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Peter 1:18-21 and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; were with Him on the holy mountain. 19 And so we have the prophetic word made  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 20 But know  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of oneæ;s own interpretation,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Holy Spirit spoke from God.  ;  ;  ; ; Christians not only need to know their Bibles, but they need to know about their Bible. It is important to be  ;  ;  ; ; carefully informed as to its value that they may be more motivated to use it and use it properly in view of its  ;  ;  ; ; character, purpose, and origin. Because spiritual understanding, faith, practice, and obedience to God is  ;  ;  ; ; dependent on the Bible, the doctrine of the Bible (bibliology) is one of the most important doctrines of  ;  ;  ; ; Scripture that a person can know.  ;  ;  ; ; David wrote, ô;I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy  ;  ;  ; ; truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy nameö; (Ps. 138:2, KJV) (emphasis mine). The  ;  ;  ; ; NASB renders the second portion of this verse ô;For Thou hast magnified Thy Word according to all Thy  ;  ;  ; ; Name.ö; The NIV has ô;for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.ö;  ;  ;  ; ; ô;Accordingö; or ô;aboveö; (KJV) represents in the Hebrew text, the hiphil stem of the verb gadal plus the  ;  ;  ; ; preposition al. This would normally mean ô;aboveö; as translated by the KJV, but all these are possible  ;  ;  ; ; translations. Regardless of which translation one accepts, the text is declaring the importance of Godæ;s Word  ;  ;  ; ; to both the knowledge and worship of God. Knowing God, which the mention of Godæ;s name includes, is  ;  ;  ; ; dependent on knowing Godæ;s Word. As it is sometimes said, ô;a manæ;s name is as good as his word,ö; so  ;  ;  ; ; Godæ;s name and knowing God is dependent on the truth, faithfulness, and accuracy of His Word and oneæ;s  ;  ;  ; ; knowledge of the Scripture. With this in mind, letæ;s consider what the Bible is.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; The Attributes of the Bible (Psa. 19:7-14)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 19:7-14 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the LORD are right,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; true; they are righteous altogether. 10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. 11  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Moreover, by them Thy servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. 13 Also keep back Thy  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I shall be  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. 14 Let the words of my  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; rock and my Redeemer.  ;  ;  ; ; It Is God-Breathed:  ;  ;  ; ; Inspired Revelation From God  ;  ;  ; ; The following data presents the testimony of the Bible concerning itself as the inspired revelation of God. This  ;  ;  ; ; is testimony which needs to be heard, but should one not want to listen to this testimonyù;and many do  ;  ;  ; ; notù;they not only ignore the testimony of the Bible, the witness of the defendant to itself, but they also ignore  ;  ;  ; ; a large amount of other evidence which has tremendous weight and substantiates this testimony of the Bible.  ;  ;  ; ; This evidence includes the inexhaustible depth of the Bible; its marvelous continuity from Genesis through  ;  ;  ; ; Revelation; its world-wide circulation, the purity and ethics of the Bible; its unrelenting faithfulness to present  ;  ;  ; ; truth and its refusal to hide the sin of its heroes; its relevance in all generations; the testimony of archeology; the  ;  ;  ; ; fulfillment of prophecy; its prevailing power to change not only individuals, but whole societies; and its  ;  ;  ; ; preservation and survival in the face of one attack after another to either destroy or discredit it.  ;  ;  ; ; This is particularly significant when we compare the Bibleæ;s preservation with all the other writings of  ;  ;  ; ; antiquity.67  ;  ;  ; ; The greatest testimony to the authenticity of the Bible as Godæ;s Word is the Lord Jesus. Why is His testimony  ;  ;  ; ; so important? Because God authenticated and proved Him to be His own divine Son by the resurrection (cf.  ;  ;  ; ; Acts 2:22-36; 4:8-12; 17:30-31; Rom. 1:4). Christ clearly confirmed the authority of the Old Testament and  ;  ;  ; ; promised the New Testament.  ;  ;  ; ; Note what Christ taught about the Old Testament:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Authority (Matt. 22:43)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Reliability (Matt. 26:54)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Finality (Matt. 4:4, 7, 10)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Sufficiency (Luke 16:31)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Indestructibility (Matt. 5:17-18)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Unity (Luke 24:27, 44)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Clarity (Luke 24:27)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Historicity (Matt. 12:40)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Facticity (scientifically) (Matt. 19:2-5)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Inerrancy (Matt. 22:29; John 3:12; 17:17)  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Its Infallibility (John 10:35)68  ;  ;  ; ; With this in mind, letæ;s look at the testimony of the defendant itself. In any just court of law, the defendant has  ;  ;  ; ; the right to be represented and heard.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Fact of Inspiration  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Tim. 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; for correction, for training in righteousness; à;  ;  ;  ; ; All Scripture is inspired, literally, ô;breathed out (qeopneustos) of God.ö; We could translate it, ô;all Scripture is  ;  ;  ; ; God-breathed.ö; This points to the means and source of inspiration. Our English word ô;inspireö; carries the idea  ;  ;  ; ; of breathing into something. The Greek word, however, teaches us God breathed out the Scripture. Though  ;  ;  ; ; God used human authors to record His message, the Bible has its source in God who breathed it out through  ;  ;  ; ; the human authors. He used their vocabularies, experiences, and personalities, but He was the ultimate source  ;  ;  ; ; and they were but the human instruments. More will be said on this below when we consider ô;the how of  ;  ;  ; ; inspiration.ö;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Extent and Nature of Inspiration  ;  ;  ; ; All Scripture, the entire Bible, Genesis through Revelation, is inspired and profitable. This points to the extent  ;  ;  ; ; of inspiration. It is all inspired. Theologians often refer to this as plenary inspiration.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 119:140 Thy word is very pure, Therefore Thy servant loves it.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 19:7-9 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the LORD are right,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; true; they are righteous altogether.  ;  ;  ; ; The result is that the whole Bible is ô;true, tried, perfect, sure, right, pure, clean, more desirable than gold, and  ;  ;  ; ; sweeter than honey.ö; Such descriptions point to the verbal, plenary, unlimited inerrancy and infallible nature of  ;  ;  ; ; the Bible (cf. 1 Cor. 2:9-13). Note the following verses where the argument hinges on one word (Gal. 3:16,  ;  ;  ; ; ô;seedö;; Matt. 22:31-32, ô;amö;).  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Matthew 5:17-18 Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; all is accomplished.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; John 10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came and the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Scripture cannot be broken,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Galatians 3:16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; does not say, ô;And to seeds,ö; as referring to many, but rather to one, ô;And to your  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; seed,ö; that is, Christ.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Matthew 22:31-32 But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; that which was spoken to you by God, saying, 32 æ;I am the God of Abraham, and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacobæ;? He is not the God of the dead but of the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; living.  ;  ;  ; ; Regarding the true nature of inspiration and the attack that has gone on for years over the truth of inspiration,  ;  ;  ; ; Ryrie writes:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; While many theological viewpoints would be willing to say the Bible is inspired, one  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; finds little uniformity to what is meant by inspiration. Some focus it on the writers;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; others, on the writings; still others, on the readers. Some relate it to the general  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; message of the Bible; others, to the thoughts; still others, to the words. Some  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; include inerrancy; many donæ;t. These differences call for precision in stating the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; biblical doctrine. Formerly all that was necessary to affirm oneæ;s belief in full  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; inspiration was the statement, ô;I believe in the inspiration of the Bible.ö; But when  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; some did not extend inspiration to the words of the text it became necessary to say,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; ô;I believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible.ö; To counter the teaching that not all  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; parts of the Bible were inspired, one had to say, ô;I believe in the verbal, plenary  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; inspiration of the Bible.ö; Then because some did not want to ascribe total accuracy  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; to the Bible, it was necessary to say, ô;I believe in the verbal, plenary, infallible,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; inerrant inspiration of the Bible.ö; But then ô;infallibleö; and ô;inerrantö; began to be  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; limited to matters of faith only rather than also embracing all that the Bible records  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; (including historical facts, genealogies, accounts of Creation, etc.), so it became  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; necessary to add the concept of ô;unlimited inerrancy.ö; Each addition to the basic  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; statement arose because of an erroneous teaching.69  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Value of Inspiration  ;  ;  ; ; Since all Scripture is God-breathed, being the product of an all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful and loving  ;  ;  ; ; God, the Apostle Paul goes on to state that the entire Bible is profitable for four things:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;  ;  ;  ; ; (1) Teachingù;ô;Teachingö; is the Greek didaskalia and means ô;doctrineö; or ô;teaching.ö; It is used in both the  ;  ;  ; ; active sense (i.e., the act of teaching), and in the passive sense (what is taught, doctrine). In the pastoral  ;  ;  ; ; epistles, Paul uses it of the act of teaching (1 Tim. 4:13, 17; 2 Tim. 3:10), and of what is taught as in sound  ;  ;  ; ; doctrine (cf. 1 Tim. 1:10; 4:6, 16; 6:1, 3; 2 Tim. 4:3; Tit. 1:9; 2:1; 2:7, 10). As many of these passages show,  ;  ;  ; ; especially Titus 2:1, our teaching must be in accord with sound doctrine. And for doctrine to be sound, it must  ;  ;  ; ; be in accord with the inspired Word. Ultimately, teaching or doctrineù;the contentù;refers to Godæ;s  ;  ;  ; ; fundamental principles for manæ;s life, both eternal and abundant, the basics, the fundamentals upon which life is  ;  ;  ; ; to be built.  ;  ;  ; ; (2) Reproofù;This is the Greek elegmos which means ô;proof, conviction, reproof.ö; The mos ending shows  ;  ;  ; ; this is a passive noun which looks at the result of the process of the convicting ministry of the Spirit through  ;  ;  ; ; the Wordù;personal conviction through exposure to truth. One might compare elegmos to another Greek  ;  ;  ; ; word, elenxis, an active noun which looks at the process of reproving or exposing. Both need to go on in the  ;  ;  ; ; life of a believer. The goal, however, is not simply the process. Itæ;s the resultù;personal conviction. Like the  ;  ;  ; ; light it is, the Bible reproves and exposes us to the various ways we violate the plan and principles of God in all  ;  ;  ; ; the relationships of life, with God and with people such as in oneæ;s family, in the church, and in society. Once  ;  ;  ; ; we have been reproved and experience conviction (reproof) to the violations, we each face a very important  ;  ;  ; ; decision. We can move toward God and respond to His correction and training, or we can rebel and resist.  ;  ;  ; ; If we resist, then, as a Father, He disciplines us to draw us back to Him.  ;  ;  ; ; (3) Correctionù;This is the Greek epanorqwsis which means ô;setting up straight, setting right.ö; It stresses the  ;  ;  ; ; restorative nature and capacity of Scripture and points to the more immediate work of the Word to set our feet  ;  ;  ; ; back on course. The Psalmist wrote, ô;The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soulö; (Psa. 19:7a).  ;  ;  ; ; (4) Training in righteousnessù;ô;Trainingö; is paideia which basically means ô;training, instruction, discipline,ö;  ;  ;  ; ; not in the sense of punishment, but in the sense of the disciplines that train and develop character, strength,  ;  ;  ; ; skill, etc. This is undoubtedly more long range and refers to those truths that develop godly character and  ;  ;  ; ; spiritual strengthù;growth truths and procedures like Bible study, meditation, and prayer.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Purpose of Inspiration  ;  ;  ; ; The purpose is that ô;the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good workö; (2 Tim. 3:17). The  ;  ;  ; ; Bible offers us Godæ;s comfort and His peace as it reveals His love, care, and mercy, but this is always in the  ;  ;  ; ; context of conforming us into the image of His Son (Rom. 8:28-29) and equipping us for a life of good works  ;  ;  ; ; (Eph. 2:10). Equipping us is designed to produce righteousness and ministry rather than self-indulgence.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Romans 8:28-29 And we know that God causes all things to work together for  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, [INVALID]d in Christ Jesus for good  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.  ;  ;  ; ; The word ô;adequateö; is the Greek artios which means ô;fit, complete, capable, sufficient: i.e., able to meet  ;  ;  ; ; whatever is needed.ö; Being ô;fitö; looks at the result or the intended result of a process, the aim in view. I think  ;  ;  ; ; the process itself is seen in the word ô;equipped.ö; Note these three points about this word:  ;  ;  ; ; (1) ô;Equippedö; is the Greek exartizw which means ô;to outfit, fully furnish, fully supplyö; as in fitting out a wagon  ;  ;  ; ; or a ship for a long journey. It was actually used of outfitting a rescue boat.70 We might compare our Coast  ;  ;  ; ; Guard vessels and their crews that are so well equipped to go out and rescue ships in trouble.  ;  ;  ; ; (2) ô;Equippedö; is an adverbial participle which points us to the mode or the means of becoming ô;adequate,ö;  ;  ;  ; ; ô;capable,ö; or ô;competent.ö; We might translate the verse as ô;that the man of God may be capable, by having  ;  ;  ; ; been thoroughly equipped.ö;  ;  ;  ; ; (3) Finally, the verb is in the perfect tense which, in Greek, often looks at the results of preceding action or a  ;  ;  ; ; process. In the context, the process is that of studying, knowing, and applying Godæ;s inspired Word while the  ;  ;  ; ; result is ability for ministry through spiritual growth.  ;  ;  ; ; Godæ;s goal, in giving us His Word and our goal in studying and knowing Godæ;s Word, is to thoroughly fit us  ;  ;  ; ; out that we might become fully competent servants of God for every kind of good work in the midst of a dark  ;  ;  ; ; and needy world, like thoroughly equipped rescue vessels on missions of mercy.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The How of Inspiration  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Pet. 1:20-21 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; about by the prophetæ;s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; (NIV)  ;  ;  ; ; No passage of Scripture tells us as much about the how of inspiration as does this passage in 2 Peter. Though  ;  ;  ; ; all of 2 Peter 1 does not deal with the how of inspiration, there are four important things that it would be well  ;  ;  ; ; to note about this first chapter and its context.  ;  ;  ; ; First, there is the context and purpose of this passage. Since God has given us all things that pertain to life and  ;  ;  ; ; godliness through the great and precious promises, i.e., the Word of God, Peter was writing to challenge his  ;  ;  ; ; readers to diligence in becoming fruitful in their knowledge of the Savior (1:3-11). In other words, faith must  ;  ;  ; ; not stand still; it must grow. Further, he wanted to remind them and us that our faith does not stand on the  ;  ;  ; ; shifting sands of manæ;s cleverly devised fables or human ideas. Rather, it is grounded in the marvelous  ;  ;  ; ; revelation of God in the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the written Word, the prophetic Word of  ;  ;  ; ; God to which we do well to pay close attention.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Peter 1:12-21 Therefore, I shall always be ready to remind you of these things,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; present with you. 13 And I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; to stir you up by way of reminder, 14 knowing that the laying aside of my earthly  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you may be able to call these  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; things to mind. 16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For when He received honor and glory from God  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, ô;This  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleasedö;ù; 18 and we ourselves heard  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 19  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; And so we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; star arises in your hearts. 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; is a matter of oneæ;s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.  ;  ;  ; ; In the process of setting forth this focus, Peter mentions his personal experience of seeing the majestic glory of  ;  ;  ; ; the transfiguration of Christ when he heard from heaven, ô;This is My beloved Son with whom I am  ;  ;  ; ; well-pleasedö; (vss. 16-17). But He goes on to teach us something that is tremendously important, especially in  ;  ;  ; ; our day when so much is made regarding personal experiences which often take precedence over Scripture.  ;  ;  ; ; Note that in verse 19 Peter writes, ô;And we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well  ;  ;  ; ; to pay attention à;ö; We need to ask, ô;More sure than what?ö; More sure than even his experience of seeing  ;  ;  ; ; Christæ;s transfiguration. Now that which Peter, James, and John saw has become a part of the record of the  ;  ;  ; ; Word and provides important revelation of the person of Christ. But the point is, our experiences, as bonafide  ;  ;  ; ; as they may be, never take precedence over the authoritative Word of God because it is more sure, steadfast,  ;  ;  ; ; and reliable. The Word is our authority and it alone must judge our experiences and determine faith and  ;  ;  ; ; practice.  ;  ;  ; ; The NIVæ;s translation of verse 20 is much closer to the original Greek, more in accord with the preceding and  ;  ;  ; ; following context, and clearly expresses the truth to be gleaned here. It reads, ô;Above all, you must understand  ;  ;  ; ; that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophetæ;s own interpretation.ö; This simply [INVALID]s that  ;  ;  ; ; whatever the prophets wrote or whatever we find in the Word, it was not the product of the authoræ;s own  ;  ;  ; ; ideas or human opinion. In verses 16-19, the issue being discussed is the source of the apostolic message.  ;  ;  ; ; Was it human fable, or was it from God? Verse 20 answers the first part of this question. It was not from man.  ;  ;  ; ; The second part of the question is found in the next verse. Note the connecting and explanatory ô;Forö; of verse  ;  ;  ; ; 21.  ;  ;  ; ; Verse 21 teaches us that both God and man were involved in the production of the Bible, but in such a way  ;  ;  ; ; that God was not only the ultimate source, but He both directed the writing and guaranteed the accuracy of the  ;  ;  ; ; product. The human authors actively spoke Godæ;s Word and they were more than dictation machines, but to  ;  ;  ; ; insure the accuracy of what was spoken, the human authors were moved and carried along by the Holy Spirit.  ;  ;  ; ; ô;Movedö; is feromenoi, a Greek passive participle meaning, ô;to be carried, be borne along.ö; This word was  ;  ;  ; ; used of a ship being carried along by the wind in its sail in Acts 27:15, 17.  ;  ;  ; ; Catching the import of this, Ryrie writes:  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Though experienced men, the sailors could not guide it so they finally had to let the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; wind take the ship wherever it blew. In the same manner as that ship was driven,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; directed, or carried about by the wind, God directed and moved the human writers  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; He used to produce the books of the Bible. Though the wind was the strong force  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; that moved the ship along, the sailors were not asleep and inactive. Similarly, the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Holy Spirit was the guiding force that directed the writers who, nevertheless, played  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; their own active roles in writing the Scriptures.71  ;  ;  ; ; This verse, then, teaches us two things regarding the ô;Howö; of inspiration: (a) The will of the human authors  ;  ;  ; ; never directed the writings of the Bible and (b) the Holy Spirit as the ultimate source ensured the accuracy of  ;  ;  ; ; what they wrote in every way.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; The Breadth of Inspiration  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 2 Pet. 1:3-4 Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.  ;  ;  ; ; It is clear from verse 4 and the reference to ô;His precious and magnificent promisesö; that Peter has the Word  ;  ;  ; ; of God in view in these two verses. First, there is the declaration that God ô;has granted to us everything  ;  ;  ; ; pertaining to life and godliness.ö; Second, life and godliness come through the knowledge of God and the Lord  ;  ;  ; ; Jesus, but such knowledge comes through the Word, the precious promises. In essence then, this points us to  ;  ;  ; ; the breadth of what Godæ;s Word covers, ô;everything pertaining to life and godliness.ö;  ;  ;  ; ; While God does not reveal everything that He could reveal, many things He has chosen to keep to Himself  ;  ;  ; ; (Deut. 29:29), the Bible does cover all that man needs for life and godliness through its revelation of God and  ;  ;  ; ; of Jesus our Lord. We have everything we need, nothing is missing. Consequently, being Godæ;s inspired  ;  ;  ; ; Word, the following is also true à;  ;  ;  ; ; It Is Alive and Powerful  ;  ;  ; ; In this attribute of the Bible, we see the quickening and energizing power of the Word of God to regenerate  ;  ;  ; ; and change or transform the lives of men as it reveals the very wisdom of God and brings men into a vital  ;  ;  ; ; relationship with Him through its truth.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; 1 Peter 1:23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; imperishable, that is, through the living and abiding word of God.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; good and acceptable and perfect.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  ;  ;  ; ; It Is Perfect, Without Defect  ;  ;  ; ; (1) It is without blemish, complete, pure, tried, and thus truth, true.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; LORD is sure, making wise the simple.  ;  ;  ; ; (2) It is uncontaminated, flawless.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; the earth, refined seven times.  ;  ;  ; ; (3) It is thoroughly tested and found flawless by testing.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; Psalm 119:140 Thy word is very pure, Therefore Thy servant loves it.  ;  ;  ; ; (4) Scripture [INVALID]s its own inerrant and unadulterated c
