What you might have missed….

2 Timothy 3:16, 17….” All scripture is given by inspiration of God… and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect…. thoroughly furnished unto all good works”….

This passage is remarkable for all three of the reasons given below:

3 reasons: #1-some passages of scripture derive their Chief importance from the REVELATION  of a great truth which is made in them…

#2- some scripture derive their importance from certain….WORDS… employed in that revelation…

#3- other scriptures derive their Chief importance from the….PLACE…. where we find them …

It is remarkable for its wonderous revelation of the claim that the scriptures are the gift of God; and that they are……………”God -breathed”…. it is remarkable also for certain….WORDS… employed and this revelation of Truth:

Especially for the word….(theopneustos)………GOD-BREATHED…. which is rendered by the five English words…..” given by inspiration of God”….

It is remarkable also for the expression…” the man of God”… which is the Hebrew idiom for the prophet, as being God’s ………….” spokesman”…. and needing, there therefore  the god breathed scriptures so that he may know what to say for him for whom he speaks as his spokesman.

Please reference: E.W. Bullingers…. How to enjoy the Bible:…Canon 6…pg…320…

There are those of you even higher critics that will say the Bible was written by men… this is true…. but it was protected and guided by the precious Holy Spirit…. everything is predicated on a supposition that God’s word is true… he cannot lie…. if you don’t get it you haven’t asked for guidance…. you will not be able to understand it with your natural mind…
