What is the basis upon which believers must accept the authority of Scripture and the inspiration of Scripture? The author argues that the main basis should be in Scripture's own witness. In the process, the claim by the Roman Catholic church for tradition as a source of authority in the believer's life is refuted based on Scripture.
The subject reflected upon in this chapter is the inspiration of Scripture. The authors consider Scripture’s unique claim on its readers and its unique authorship and how this is challenged in the modern age. Particular attention is paid to the school of Princeton and in particular the views of B. B. Warfield on verbal inspiration (plenary inspiration).
This article looks at three different perspectives on the inspiration of Scripture: literary inspiration, dictation, and organic. The author shows how we should view Scripture's inspiration, and encourages us that the inspiration of Scripture proves its reliability.
This article looks at four different approaches to the inspiration of Scripture: denying inspiration, believing in partial inspiration, adding something extra to Scripture, or accepting Scripture as the inspired word of God. The author also discusses the relationship between inspiration and revelation, showing what it means to confess biblical inspiration.
