Sunday School Today: The Bible’s Divine Authority

Today’s study on the Bible looked at evidence that all Scripture is inspired by God (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). We can know for certain that God’s Word is authentic because of when it was written and how it often references eyewitness testimony, especially when looking at the events of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are also historical references and archaeological discoveries that give even more evidence to its authenticity. Scripture also shows that everything wasn’t perfect in ministry. It records how even some of the founding fathers of ministry has even denied the faith or rejected it altogether. It is among these facts that we can look to the Bible with confidence that it is of divine authority. Even though we rely upon faith in Jesus Christ and trust in Him and His living Word, the Word is a firm foundation that we can rely upon as a source of teaching, training and power for your life. Use the Word as a guide to greater understand what God is doing in your life and how you can best respond to what life brings your way.
